Clamp-On Micro Flow Sensor.
KEYENCE Corporation of America has released a Clamp-On Micro Flow Sensor. The FD-X Series is a solution for numerous applications where monitoring liquid flow is problematic or currently not possible.
The FD-X Series can be used with any liquid such as water, oil, lubricants, chemicals, grease, adhesives, FIPG, etc. Viscous and corrosive liquids are not an issue either. They easily clamp-on to the outside of nearly any rigid pipe or flexible tube, regardless of material.
Other features include:
* IP-68G rating and housed in a chemical resistant, carbon fiber reinforced body
* Clamp-on design eliminates need for maintenance since the unit does not come in contact with the liquid it is detecting
* Versatile for all types of applications: monitor instantaneous flow, accumulated flow, and even shot/dispensing applications
