Fluidwell F114 Safe Area Ratio Totalizer

Robust Intrinsically Safe flow computers for safe and hazardous areas. Combining easy operation and extreme durability in the toughest conditions.

The F114 flow computer calculates the actual ratio between two separate flows. It offers the ability to set one low ratio and one high ratio alarm value. Special precautions are taken to allow start-up problems and incorrect ratio readings for a certain period of time. Based on the location of the flowmeters, a selection can be made out of six different formulas.

Description

Robust Intrinsically Safe flow computers for safe and hazardous areas. Combining easy operation and extreme durability in the toughest conditions.

The F114 flow computer calculates the actual ratio between two separate flows. It offers the ability to set one low ratio and one high ratio alarm value. Special precautions are taken to allow start-up problems and incorrect ratio readings for a certain period of time. Based on the location of the flowmeters, a selection can be made out of six different formulas.

The display shows the ratio, alarm values, flow rate A, total A and flow rate B, total B. On-screen engineering units are easily configured from a comprehensive selection. The ratio can be displayed as 1:__ or as a percentage.

Advantages
  • Robust aluminum or stainless steel 316L field enclosure (IP66, IP67 / NEMA Type4X) .
    It is so rugged, a truck can even stand on it!
  • Intrinsically Safe available – ATEX and IECEx approval for gas and dust applications.
  • Familiar easy operation with the Fluidwell “Know one, know them all” configuration structure, saving time, cost and aggravation.
  • Very diverse mounting possibilities: walls, pipes, panels or directly onto outdoor sensors.
