EPI Series 8200 MPNH Insertion Remote Thermal Mass Flow Meter

EPI 17

 

Description

The EIdridge Product, Inc. (EPI)  insertion style thermal mass flow meter series 8200 MPNH includes a sensor & probe assembly that is inserted into the process gas flow conduit to allow the process gas to flow across the flow sensing elements. Our insertion style flow meters are available with 1/2″, 3/4″, or 1″ OD probes. Tube fittings and ball valve retractor assemblies, with or without a mounting flange, are also available from the factory as options. The tube length must be specified upon ordering. For other probe diameters and lengths, please consult the factory.

Remote style thermal mass flow meters utilize two enclosures. One enclosure is mounted at the point of measurement on the flow section or on the probe assembly. This enclosure may be rated for either hazardous environments or for ordinary, non-hazardous environments, as necessary. The second (remote) enclosure is usually placed in a readily accessible location rated for non-hazardous conditions. (Contact the factory for information concerning remote explosion-proof enclosure). The remote enclosure includes the all of the electrical connections as well as the linearizing electronics and the display/keypad assembly. Only a four-wire, twisted-pair cable is required to carry the input power and flow signal between the two enclosures.

Thermal mass flow meters use the principle of convective heat transfer to directly measure mass flow. EPI’s proprietary thermal mass flow sensors use two ratiometrically-matched, reference-grade platinum Resistance Temperature Detectors (RTDs). The platinum sensing element wire is encapsulated in a 316 Stainless Steel sheath or, if specified, a Hastelloy C sheath. Our microcontroller operated smart sensor technology preferentially heats one RTD; the other RTD acts as the temperature reference. The process gas flow dissipates heat from the first RTD, causing an increase in the power required to maintain a balance between the RTDs. This increase is directly related to the gas molecular rate of flow. Our sensors are temperature compensated for a wide process gas temperature range and insensitive to pressure changes, so the output signal is a true mass flow rate signal.

EPI Series 9000MP Multipoint Thermal Mass Flow Meter

EPI 29

Description

The Eldridge Product,Inc. (EPI) Multipoint System series 9000MP are designed to measure gas flows where two or more sensing points are required due to large cross-sectional areas, such as large air intake ducts or air exhaust and flue stacks. Our Series 9000MP Multipoint Systems are installed throughout the world, providing our customers with years of steady, reliable service. Coupled with our new Air Purge System, the Series 9000MP Multipoint Systems are now well-suited to an even greater variety of industrial applications. The probe design supports applications as diverse as ambient air flows in HVAC ducts, exhaust gas in large diameter stacks, boiler NOx efficiency systems and municipal waste incinerators. Our customers include environmental/HVAC system integrators, pulp & paper mills, power & energy companies, etc. across the US, Europe and Asia. The configuration and installation options support facility retrofits as well as the most modern new construction requirements.

Configuration

The Series 9000MP Multipoint System includes one or more Series 9000MP Probes and a Series 9600MP System Control Panel. The 9000MP flow transmitter probe assembly is the heart of the system. The probe assembly typically has two or more flow sensors mounted in a 1½” OD probe shaft. The 9000MP probe’s sensors are removable for field replacement if one is damaged. Each sensor is matched to its own bridge board and microprocessor to function, in effect, as a complete flow meter. The linearized output signals from the multiple sensor assemblies in each probe are averaged to create one overall probe output signal.

The probe’s averaged output signal is transmitted to a Series 9600MP System Control Panel (SCP). If more than one probe is installed, the output signals from all of the probes are transmitted to the SCP for averaging to create one system output. The System Control Panel (SCP) is housed in a 12″ x 10″ NEMA 4X fiberglass enclosure. The SCP provides the power for the probe assemblies and receives the averaged outputs over a four-wire cable to each probe. It also includes its own microprocessor assembly for system-level control and flow display. The SCP provides two analog output signals (0–5 VDC and 4–20 mA), as well as RS232 & RS485 Modbus RTU communications. The 4–20 mA grand average output can drive up to 1200 ohms.

Optional Air Purge System

The optional Air Purge System (APS) provides a means of cleaning the sensors in applications where particulates cause problems. The frequency and duration of the purge cycle can be controlled externally or by using the Master-Touch™ software. The system can also be set to maintain the flow rate at its level when the purge was activated. This important option preserves the integrity of the flow rate and elapsed total data which might otherwise be compromised by the flow of the purge gas.


EPI Series 9600MP System Control Panel (SCP)

EPI 30

Description

The Eldridge Product,Inc. (EPI) System Control Panel (SCP) series 9600MP provides the ability to average multiple sensors for one output flowrate. It can be used with all of our single point or multipoint meters. This allows for a variety of system configurations to address flow profiles that require sensors in various cross sectional positions. You can use our low cost meters on up to our more elaborate multipoint system.

The multiple probes’ output signals are transmitted to a Series 9600MP System Control Panel (SCP) via Modbus RTU communications. At its most basic, this system provides an analog “grand average” output. However, the system’s local Modbus network design also supports communications with each Series MP flow meter, as well as the overall system, for an unparalleled level of command and control when accessed by the user though the Modbus interface.

The System Control Panel (SCP) is housed in a 12″ x 10″ NEMA 4X fiberglass enclosure. The SCP provides the power for the probe assemblies and receives the averaged outputs over a four-wire cable to each probe. It also includes its own microprocessor assembly for system-level control and flow display. The SCP provides two analog output signals (0–5 VDC and 4–20 mA), as well as RS232 & RS485 Modbus RTU communications. The 4–20 mA grand average output can drive up to 1200 ohms. 2-line, 16 character LCD with 4 button keypad for system level control.
