SICK has released titanium sensors for stack and duct flow monitoring for temperatures up to 800 degrees and up to 40ft.
The “High Power” FLOWSIC100 H version with high ultrasound power is suitable for measurements in stacks with large diameters as well as for applications with high dust content. The FLOWSIC100 M with medium acoustic power is especially suited for stacks with medium diameter. The ultrasonic transducers of the probe type FLOWSIC100 PR are mounted with fixed path length on one sender/receiver unit (measuring probe). This probe version requires installation from only one side of the duct with minimal effort. It enables installation in facilities with access from only one side.
Rugged titanium transducers are standard and suitable under difficult conditions. The measuring system needs no purge air and consists of 2 sender/receiver units and a MCU control unit. The MCU is used for input and output of signals, for calculation of volume flow to reference conditions (standardization) as well as user-friendly LCD interface.
