FCI's monitor approved.

THE advanced model FS10A analyser flow switch/monitor from Fluid Components International (FCI) has received FM and FMc (Canadian) approvals.

With FM and FMc approvals, the FS10A analyser flow switch/monitor is suitable for continuous flow verification applications that support process analyser sampling systems operating in hazardous plant areas in the US, Canada and elsewhere worldwide. The FS10A's FM and FMc approvals are as follows: Nonincendive, Class I, Division 2 Groups A, B, C, D; Class II, Division 2 Groups E, F, G; Class III T4@Ta=71[euro]centsC Type 4X.The FM and FMc approvals specify design criteria for flow meters and other electrically-powered instruments for use in areas where combustible gases may be present. These approvals assure the instrument has been designed and tested to operate safely in these hazardous conditions.

The model FS10A analyser flow switch/monitor represents the next-generation, lowest-cost solution for continuously verifying flows within liquid or gas process analyser sampling systems. It is a small, lightweight instrument featuring superior low flow sensitivity, a relay alarm trip point, an analog output and an RS232 interface. The FS10A's advanced electronics and thermal dispersion flow sensing technology provide a superior overall solution to sampling system flow assurance. It is ideally suited for continuous monitoring of analyzer sample flows to provide the highest integrity process analysis without interruption.

The breakthrough FS10A analyser flow switch/monitor features a precision flow sensor element with no moving parts to foul, clog or maintain, ensuring continuous reliability and requiring virtually no maintenance. Unlike capillary bypass flow meters and controllers, the FS10A has no cavities, orifices or dead-legs that can trap fluids and lead to contaminated samples, which preserves sample integrity and provides faster system sampling times.
