Laminar Gas flow Calibrator
Compact, lightweight direct reading Flow Meter for measurement of flow for a gas selected from multiple options.
Bernoulli's equation is the fundamental principle on which differential pressure (∆p) flow meters are based.
In these ∆p flow meters, a constriction is introduced in the flow path, which results in a pressure drop across the constriction. The greater the flow, the more is the pressure drop.
As per Bernoulli’s equation, the pressure drop across the constriction is proportional to the square of the flow rate.
A Laminar Flow Element (LFE) is a special kind of constriction, through which the fluid flow is in laminar regime (low Reynolds number). The pressure drop across this element is linear in relation to the flow rate.
This enhances accuracy of reading at lower flow rates and increases the “turn down ratio” from the usual 10:1 to 100:1.
The flow is computed by measuring differential pressure and making corrections with data from temperature and absolute pressure sensors.
Available Model : PSI -LGFC
