Generating compressed air is highly energy costly. Companies are constantly trying to reduce consumption. Consumption measurement ist also necessary for a possible DIN EN ISO 50001 certification for energy management.
Therefore measurement of compressed air consumption has been a standard procedure in the industry for years now. The source (the compressor), certain parts of the company from production halls to individual production cells need to be monitored.
Portable temporary measurements are also required. That way consumption can be measured at a specific point of the compressed air net and certain actions can be taken. The goal is to increase energy efficiency and therefore optimise the company’s ecobalance.
Flow rate of compressed air can vary a lot depending on the location of measuring. Applied sensors should therefore have a great turndown ratio.
Many areas of application
Very high turndown ratio of 1:1000
Negligible pressure loss compared to other measuring methods
