Insertion-style thermal mass flow meters from Fox Thermal accurately measure flow rates for a wide range of gases – with faster lead times and an appealing price point.Compare Products
Fox Thermal insertion flow meters use our patented thermal mass flow technology. They require no compensation for temperature or pressure changes and provide exceptional accuracy with a wide turndown.
Hot tap installation allows insertion flow meters to be installed without service interruptions. Optional ball valve/retractor mounting hardware allows the meter to be safely retracted out of the process stream for maintenance and then easily reinstalled.
Fox Thermal insertion flow meters come in many available probe lengths that can accommodate line sizes from 1.5 inches up to 70 inches. Insertion-style flow meters can be installed in horizontal or vertical pipes.
Local insertion-style flow meters have an enclosure housing the microprocessor of the flow meter intrinsically connected to a probe that is inserted into the process pipe.
Retractors with a ball valve shut off can be ordered to allow the flow meter’s probe to be retracted from the pipe for routine maintenance.
Lateral placement of the flow meter on the process pipe is determined by the straight run requirements of the style of flow meter and the existence of obstructions or elbows in the pipe that create swirl or turbulent flow profiles.
For more accurate flow measurement, a uniform flow profile can be achieved either through the addition of straight pipe runs between the causes of turbulent flow or through the addition of a flow conditioning device.
Remote-style flow meters have an enclosure that can be mounted at a distance away from the probe. The enclosure is connected by cable to a remote junction box fitted to the probe.
A remote-style insertion flow meter is needed in cases where the probe insertion location would make viewing the flow meter’s display difficult for the user if an intrinsic insertion flow meter were used.
The advantages of a remote-mounted insertion flow meter are:
If you’re not sure which insertion flow meter is right for your application, our Help Me Choose app walks you through a short series of questions to help you choose the ideal meter.
Next, enter your process data and flow meter requirements into our automated product configurator. Drop-down menus and Help icons will guide you to answer each question.
Save the data you entered into the configurator to create a PDF with a model code and AppID. When you're ready, submit your application to Fox Thermal for a quote.
