Ex-proof flow controller with aseptic process adaptation
Published: 6 February 2019 - Sarah Mead
For flow monitoring of aqueous or oily fluids in hygienic applications, EGE provides the STD flow controller with an aseptic Varivent F process adapter.
The thermal sensor is suitable for use in category two hazardous areas. It detects flow velocities between 1cm/s and 10 cm/s in water and between 3cm/s and 200cm/s in oil. Depending on the temperature class of the explosive gas mix it is exposed to, it is suitable for ambient temperatures from -20 °C to +85 °C. The process adapter has an IP67 protection rating and withstands pressures up to 60 bar.
The flow controller is connected to the SKZ analysis device via a PUR cable.
