Measuring Pure Gases with Thermal Mass Flow Meters

Fox Thermal Pure Gas Applications

Fox Thermal Flow Meters provide the real time responsiveness required in a variety of pure gas flow measurement applications.

Pure gases may be used in any of these applications and industries:

  • Food Processing like CO2 in beer manufacturing, nitrogen in mayonnaise manufacturing, hydrogen in hydrogenated oil production
  • Pharmaceutical Industry for tablet and pill coating nitrogen flow
  • Hydrogen flow for fuel cell production
  • Oxygen flow to burners for the glass or ceramics manufacturing industry
  • Nitrogen purge monitoring in pulp and paper plants
  • Leak testing in industrial processing plants
  • Argon usage for specialty gas producers
  • Coke or oven gas in steel and aluminum fabrication
  • Many more applications!

Common pure gases:
  • Ammonia
  • Argon
  • Carbon Dioxide
  • Carbon Monoxide
  • Helium
  • Hydrogen
  • Methane
  • Nitrogen
  • Oxygen
  • Ethane
  • Propane
  • Butane

Most of these pure gases are available in the Gas-SelectX® gas selection menu feature in the Model FT1 thermal mass flow meter. The Models FT2A and FT3 can also be calibrated to measure all of these gases.

Fox Thermal strives to design and manufacture the most innovative and reliable thermal mass flow meter products to our customers. All Fox Thermal meters measure mass flow rate and are available in insertion and inline models. Fox Thermal models FT1, FT2A and FT3 are mass flow meters and temperature transmitters providing isolated 4-20mA and pulse output for flow rate, and a 4-20mA pulse output for process gas temperature or a second flow rate output.

Fox Thermal flow meters are often calibrated to measure air flow. Please review the product features for Models FT1, FT2A and FT3 for further information about our thermal mass flow meter products.
