FORGOT YOUR DETAILS?

COMPRESSED AIR IS NOT FREE!!

Why is consumption measurement so important?

Example:

Medium-sized production plant
Company size 200 employees
Typical compressor capacity 16m3/min = 960 m3/h
Efficiency factor 80% including night - idling
Electrical power input 100 kW
Daily operation time 2 shift operation / 16 h
Annual operation time 276 days = 4416 h
Energy costs 4416 h x 80 kW x 0,21 €
€ 74.000 = US$ 110.000
Leakages approx. 20 to 30% of the total consumption, this is typical for old plants approx. 15.000 € = 22.500 US$

We offer compressed air metering systems that can:

Measure exact consumption, give you weekly or monthly read outs for cost accounting and employee information.
Determine peak consumption so that you know whether your compressor supply enough air or whether you have to expect bottle-necks
Determine each pneumatic device consumption as well as diagnose if the tubes have the right diameter, if the machine is optimally adjusted, and identify wear & tear trend of machines.
Assist you in cost accounting per department or large machine.
Improve cost calculations and cost consciousness.
Assist you in leakage detection
Monitor air-consumption during non production times to identify increasing leakage of air.
There are different models to select from in-line and on-line methods of installation.

The C400 series

C400 flow / consumption sensor (insertion type)

 

The C400 flow sensor  is based on the thermal mass flow principle. It measures volumetric standard flow over a wide measuring range. The result is pressure and temperature independent.
The sensor installation into the pipe is done through a ½” ball valve. This makes it possible to do the installation under pressure without shutting down the compressed air line.The sensor is available in two measuring ranges and with or without display. The version with display shows the actual volumetric flow and the total consumption. Via the keyboard tube diameters and the consumption counter can be set.
Every sensor includes an analogue output (4…20mA) for flow and an isolated pulse output for the consumption counter.

Special Features

  • Integrated display for m3/h and m3
  • Depth scale for accurate installation
  • Usable from 1/2” to 12” (DN 300)
  • Easy installation under pressure
  • 4…20 mA analogue output for m3/h resp. m3/min
  • Pulse output for m3
  • Inner diameter adjustable via keypad
  • Consumption counter resettable
  • Insertion type sensor for installations under pressure
  • Thermal mass flow, independent of pressure and temperature changes

C420 flow / consumption sensor (in-line measurement)

The consumption sensor C420 is based on the thermal mass flow principle. It measures volumetric standard flow over a wide measuring range. The result is pressure and temperature independent. C420 is an in-line type sensor which is mounted into the pipe. There are 7 models available for ¼”, ½”, ¾”, 1” , 1 ¼”, 1 ½”, and 2” tubes. The version with display shows the actual volumetric flow and the total consumption. The consumption counter can be set via the keyboard. Various settings such as gas type, flow unit, reference standards, can be set ex factory or through our service kit. The service kit consists of a PC software and an interface box which connects the sensor to the USB port of the PC. Every sensor includes an analogue output (4…20mA) for flow and an isolated pulse output for the consumption counter.

Features

  • In-line type for high accuracy in small tube diameters.
  • Analogue output 4…20 mA, pulse output (galvanically separated).
  • Particular suitable for measuring process gases such as N2, Ar, He etc.
  • Thermal mass flow, independent of pressure and temperature changes
  • Easy installation
  • Very fast response time

Applications for C420

  • compressed air balancing
  • compressed air consumption measurement
  • leakage air / leak rate determination
  • mobile compressed air measurement in front of single machines / plants
  • flow measurement of process gases like e. g. nitrogen, CO2, oxygen, argon, nitrous oxide
  • flow measurement at nitrogen generators
