Industrial Gas Flow Meters

Optimize your Industrial Process with Accurate Flow Meters

Industrial gas flow meters must be rugged, packed with features and options, and ready to measure out of the box. Plant operators must often keep the process gas flow uninterrupted in order to keep production running. Shutting down production is costly and inefficient. Here are some great features of the award-winning industrial gas mass flow meters by Fox Thermal:

  • Easy installation with insertion and inline style flow meters
  • A no-moving-parts design
  • Wide measurement range (up to 1,000:1, 100:1 typical)

Meet ESG Goals with Flexible Features for Superior Operations

In the modern industrial sector, the need to meet emission reduction (ESG) goals, improve efficiency, and reduce downtime is paramount. Flow meters with accurate gas flow measurement capabilities is just the start of meeting these goals. It also requires a meter that is reliable and flexible.

Ensuring your meter runs accurately is easy with CAL-V™ calibration validation. This feature allows quick verification of the original NIST-traceable calibration from the factory. A CAL-V™ test can be run anytime and under process flow conditions and is available on the FT1, FT3, FT4A, and FT4X flow meter models.

The Gas-SelectX® feature, available on Fox Thermal flow meter models FT1, FT4A, and FT4X, allows technicians to program the meter’s gas composition settings while keeping the meter functioning in place and avoiding shutdowns. This reduction in maintenance and shutdown costs improves the overall performance of the site or process.

Thermal Mass Flow Meters for Other Industries

Wastewater and Biogas

Communities across the U.S. and the world are updating and improving their aging wastewater treatment facilities. Innovation in wastewater treatment practices that harness biogas for cogeneration are also on the rise. This industry has also been impacted by methane reduction goals worldwide.

Fox Thermal gas mass flow meters can accurately measure the air systems used in aerobic processes and the biogas from anaerobic treatment processes.
