Fluidwell E115 Explosion Proof Bi-directional Flow Rate Totalizer

These unequalled explosion proof (Ex d) flow rate indicators / totalizers deliver user-friendliness in the toughest conditions.

The E115 has been developed for applications where the direction of flow is an issue. Applications can be found by loading and unloading of ships where one bi-directional flowmeter is used. Another application is the correction of back-flow due to shocks in a pipeline caused by piston pumps or valve behavior. It is required to offer two pulse signals from the flowmeter which are 90° or 270° degrees out of phase.

Description

These unequalled explosion proof (Ex d) flow rate indicators / totalizers deliver user-friendliness in the toughest conditions.

The E115 has been developed for applications where the direction of flow is an issue. Applications can be found by loading and unloading of ships where one bi-directional flowmeter is used. Another application is the correction of back-flow due to shocks in a pipeline caused by piston pumps or valve behavior. It is required to offer two pulse signals from the flowmeter which are 90° or 270° degrees out of phase.

The E-series distinguishes itself by its quality and functionality driven European design and manufacturing. It is more than fulfilling the rules for explosion proof design, it is about safety during the daily operation. Often, the environment is much tougher than the explosion proof requirements demand. Thus dangerous conditions may be experienced due to a broken enclosure or a poorly made flame path. Ruggedness and reliability is where Fluidwell stands for and it is now available in a comprehensive well designed and purpose driven explosion proof flow rate indicator / totalizer.

Advantages
  • Saves time and improves flexibility with the through-glass keypad: no need to open the front cover.
  • Familiar easy operation with the Fluidwell “Know one, know them all” configuration structure, saving time, cost and aggravation.
  • Durable high-grade stainless steel 316L Ex d enclosure withstanding extreme (maritime) conditions.
