As market and innovation leader in the field of compressed air flow measurement, we would like to introduce our newly developed VD 500 - flow sensor for wet compressed air in more detail. The integrated differential pressure sensor measures the differential or dynamic pressure at the tip of the sensor. This pressure depends on the speed. By means of the pipe diameter the flow rate can be determined quickly and exactly.
The newly developed sensor is particularly suitable for measuring environments where extremely high flow rates occur. It has a very fast response time of 100 ms. The sensor can be installed and removed for this purpose via a standard ½" ball valve, even under pressure, and is also suitable for a wide range of pipe diameters (DN 20 to DN 500). In addition to the flow rate, the sensor also outputs the total consumption, temperature and system pressure. Thus you get 4 important compressed air parameters from one sensor.
The sum of these characteristics also defines the optimal field of application for the newly developed VD 500. When developing this consumption sensor, we focused on the Free Air Delivery (FAD) measurement of compressors and the uncomplicated execution of compressed air audits.
If you are interested in our new VD 500 or would like to know more details about one of our flow measurement systems, please contact our sales and service team via the contact form on the left or directly by phone. We look forward to being able to advise you personally during these days as well.
