Flow measurement as a success factor

The flow measurement is a important process in various branches of industry and in technical applications. The volume or quantity of liquids or gases flowing past a point within a certain period of time is determined quantitatively.

Different types of flow measurements exist, based on different physical principles. We from SEIKOM Electronic rely primarily on the calorimetric or thermal flow measurement. In some cases, heated sensors measure the ambient temperature. Heat is removed from the sensors by passing media such as gases or liquids. On the basis of this temperature drop, thanks to the flow measurement via our devices, the amount of the medium flowing past is reliable is determined. Since the media temperature can change in addition to the flow, there is always a Reference measurement to ensure a consistently high measurement quality.

Flow measurement - Which device is the right one?

The right choice of your measuring device is of crucial importance, as it significantly influences the accuracy and reliability of the acquired data. In addition to the environmental conditions in which the measurement is performed, the specific requirements of the process or the application must be taken into account. This includes aspects such as the measuring range, temperature and pressure of the medium to be measured. In addition, the Type of medium plays an essential role: different liquids or gases have different physical properties that affect the choice of measuring device. The Integration of the measuring device into the existing control or monitoring system is another point to consider. The communication interfaces and protocols must be compatible to ensure seamless integration.

For a more detailed insight into the necessary selection criteria we have clearly compiled them here for you:

Selection criteria for a flow meter

Depending on the measured medium, different sensors and materials are used - the underlying thermal measuring principle is the same. When measuring air/ gases, the sensor elements are usually located directly in the air flow and can reliably monitor the smallest flow changes. For monitoring liquid media, we use a closed sensor system.

All measuring devices can be used for flow measurement of industrial environments up to approx. 80°C without any problems. In addition, we offer sensors for hot environments up to 400°C. For these media temperatures we use special sensor elements. These have proven themselves especially in the field of industrial furnaces, heating equipment, heating registers, soldering systems as well as test and inspection equipment, in mechanical and plant engineering, process technology, exhaust gas and emission monitoring.

Flowmeters from SEIKOM Electronic have signal outputs for various applications.

  • Relay output/ switch
  • Relative analog output (0-10 V, 4-20 mA)
  • Linear analog output (0-10 V, 4-20 mA)

Signal output

Application areas (exemplary)

Flowmeters

Relay output for monitoring minimum or maximum ranges of flows. The switching point is defined individually by means of a potentiometer or by setting (RLSW®8). A switching contact is triggered when the switching point is exceeded or undershot.
By means of relay output you get a reliable answer to the question whether a certain flow is exceeded or not.

Airflow monitoring in air ducts, machines, plants and test facilities

In compact design:
RLSW4, RLSW 5, RLSW6, RLSW7, RLSW8

For control cabinet installation:
NLSW45-3, NLSW2a, ...

With a relative analog output (0 - 10 V, 4 - 20 mA), it is not only a matter of whether there is a flow, but also how high this flow is. The relative output has a linearized output signal that is often used for visualization.

Flow measurement for monitoring by means of programmable logic controller (PLC, DDC).

RLSW4A, RLSW5A

The most accurate flow measurement is achieved by means of a linear analog output (0 - 10 V, 4 - 20 mA) in control quality. Here the air flow is measured and precisely evaluated for further processing.

Air flow measurement for control and further processing of the output signal in a programmable logic controller (PLC, DDC) or control of a fan regulated by a frequency converter.

RLSW8

Devices for flow measurement are available both in compact design (RLSW®) and as an evaluation unit for control cabinet installation (NLSW®) with separate sensor.

In the compact design (RLSW®), the sensor and evaluation electronics form one unit and the flow measurement and signal evaluation take place directly at the measuring point. The measuring devices are built for robust industrial use and usually have a degree of protection of IP65 (RLSW®8: IP54). The advantages of this design are on the one hand the possibility to read information directly at the installation site (LED or LCD display). On the other hand, signals are evaluated immediately and then transmitted over longer distances by means of cables.

The design with evaluation unit (NLSW®) and separate wired sensor is suitable for control cabinet installation. This design is particularly suitable for harsh process applications and if the signals are to be processed directly in the control cabinet. In addition, it is especially mandatory for flow measurement in explosion-proof environments (ATEX zones 1 and 2).

If you have decided to use a separate evaluation unit, please note that the associated sensor (available in different lengths/immersion depths) is available separately.

All sensors have a cable length of 2.5 meters as standard. We are happy to manufacture sensors with longer cable connections (up to 30 m in environments up to 80°C) - just contact our team for this.

For explosion-proof areas we use specially certified sensors and evaluation units for ATEX zones 1 and 2 for flow measurement. For this purpose, you can obtain flow monitors with relay output (NLSW®45-3 Ex) as well as with relative analog output (NLSW®75-A Ex). The scope of delivery here includes the evaluation unit and two Zener barriers for installation outside the explosion-proof area.

For environments with SIL1 requirements, we also offer certified devices for flow measurement (NLSW®45-3 SIL1 and sensor F3.x SIL1).

For applications with ATEX and SIL1 requirements, our product range includes the NLSW®45-3 Ex SIL1 device, which meets both requirements. Here, too, the scope of delivery includes the evaluation unit and the associated Zener barriers.

Please note that both the evaluation unit and the sensor must be certified accordingly in order to meet the requirements for explosion-proof areas as well as the SIL1 requirements. We will be pleased to provide you with all certificates on request.

For reliable flow measurement, a laminar and thus steady flow without turbulence is required. Experience shows that this flow occurs in the middle of the air duct or pipe. The sensor should therefore extend into the middle of the duct or pipe. 

Airflow sensors are available in standard lengths of 50 mm (Fx), 130 mm (Fx.1), 165 mm (Fx.2), 300 mm (Fx.3), 400 mm (Fx.4) or 500 mm (Fx.5). In addition, special lengths are also possible without any problems.

For flow measurement of liquid media, sensors with an immersion depth of 46 or 150 mm are available as standard. Here, too, we are happy to provide special solutions if required.

In addition to the sensor length, the inlet and outlet distances (upstream and downstream of the sensor - usually at least 5 times the pipe or duct diameter) must also be taken into account for an optimum measurement result. Mounting directly behind a fan or angled pipe or obstacle should be avoided due to turbulence.

Basically, different installation options are available for installation in the air duct or pipe. All SEIKOM Electronic sensors for flow measurement have a threaded connection and can thus be screwed directly into the pipe.

Air flow sensors are supplied with a PG7 thread as standard and can be screwed directly into the air duct or pipe.

Using separately available reducers, the sensor can be easily adapted to M16 x 1.5, M20 x 1.5 or G1/2-inch (or other) process connections.

Sensors for measuring liquid media (e.g. RLSW®7, F6.x) have a G1/2-inch or a G1/4-inch connection as standard.

In addition, we offer screw-in adapters with an external thread M20 x 1.5. Here you can continuously adjust the immersion depth of the sensor and thus easily identify the optimal measuring location for the flow measurement. For regular cleaning of the sensor (e.g. in contaminated media, in exhaust gas environments, etc.) it is possible to simply remove the sensors.

In addition, we offer various mounting flanges as accessories.

Yes, we offer our selected flow measurement devices with TÜV type examination according to DIN EN 61010-1:2011-07. The devices are certified and there are regular inspections and quality checks in our manufacturing workshops by our experienced team.
