Flow sensor for heavy duty industrial applications

The immersion sensor VA 550 is the ideal flow sensor for installation into existing compressed air resp. gas lines from 3/4“ up to DN 500.

 

 

Special mechanical features:

  • Robust impact-proof aluminum die cast housing for the outdoor area IP 67
  • All medium-touching parts made from stainless steel 1,4571
  • As immersion sensor suitable for 3/4“ up to DN 500
  • On request with ATEX approval ATEX II 2G Ex d IIC T4
  • On request with DVGW approval for natural gas (up to 16 bar)
  • Pressure range up to 50 bar, special version up to 100 bar
  • Temperature range up to 180 °C, optionally up to 350°C
  • No moving parts, no wearout
  • Sensor tip very robust, easy to clean
  • Easy mounting and dismounting under pressure via 1/2“ ball valve
  • Housing twistable, display twistable by 180°
  • Safety ring for mounting and dismounting under pressure
  • Depth scale for precise installation

Special measurement technology features:

  • 4 values in the display: Nm³/h, Nm³, Nm/s, °C units freely adjustable
  • Min/max values and daily/hours/minutes average values freely adjustable
  • All measured values, settings like gas type, inner diameter, serial number and so on retrievable via Modbus RTU
