AW-Lake Company introduces the new PRO Plus Series of TRICOR Coriolis Mass Flow Meters that incorporates a new sensor with their DSP transmitter (released earlier this year) to provide a complete flow measurement solution in a compact configuration for simple installation in a variety of applications with limited space. In addition to the smallest installation length on the market, the PRO Plus Series features a self-draining, hygienic design to provide high performance under harsh and sanitary process conditions.
AW-Lake Company now offers its HUB-40EX Hazardous Area Rated Flow Sensor with a choice of either sinking or sourcing digital output and a choice of 316 stainless steel or aluminum junction box; or for areas with limited space, a version with no junction box at all. Compatible with any stainless-steel AW-Lake flow meter, the explosion-proof frequency output sensor is ideal for use in any industry or flow measurement application requiring an explosion-proof sensor such as chemical injection or hydraulic fracturing.
AW-Lake adds the RT-50 Flow Rate Transmitter to its Bluetooth Series of Products that support remote monitoring and programming of its flow meters from the convenience of a smartphone. The FAC-S Analog Output Sensor and FAC-R Frequency to Analog Converter also offer Bluetooth connectivity and analog output options when interfacing with AW-Lake Flow Meters and other instrumentation. Bluetooth connectivity provides an added convenience for users to monitor and program flow meters from the convenience of a smart device.
- The Battery-Powered Flow Rate Transmitter offers a local and remote display of flow rates in locations where equipment is exposed to different environmental elements. When operating locally, the transmitter offers a six-digit LCD display that continuously shows either the flow rate or total. When using Bluetooth connectivity, users can opt to view readings and adjust rate, total, reset, sleep mode, or time on a smart device
- The Analog Output Sensor is ideal for users of AW-Lake flow meters that want a voltage, current or handheld flow reading. Mounted directly to a gear or turbine flow meter, the FAC-S Analog Output Sensor provides five user-selectable analog and current outputs including 4-20mA, 0-5V, 1-5V, 0-10V, and 2-. Using the Bluetooth interface, users can program and watch live flow measurements from the convenience of a smartphone. The microprocessor-based FAC-S Sensor supports process monitoring, data acquisition and signal conditioning in various industries.
- A remote version of the FAC-S, the Frequency to Analog Converter interfaces with flow meters, tachometers, pumps, motors and linear/rotational encoders to convert sensor frequency to current and analog outputs. Bluetooth connectivity supports remote programming and flow monitoring from a smartphone. An economical alternative to a PLC card, the FAC-R is ideal for use in process monitoring, data acquisition and virtually any application when sending an analog signal to a PLC or other control system.
AW-Lake Company introduces its new PCU Series of Controllers that connect with Vogtlin or any thermal mass flow meter or controller to provide a local display of flow output. Serving as a single- or multi-channel mass flow controller with up to four channels, the PCU instruments support multiple unit networked operations. A large, high-contrast backlit display offers easy-to-read views of process variables and programmed setpoints for each connected device on one screen.
AW-LAKE COMPANY introduces the FAC-S Analog Output Sensor that hardwires with any flow meter to provide voltage, current or Bluetooth connectivity of readings. Ideal for use on any AW-Lake Gear or Turbine Flow Meter, the FAC-S produces a scalable voltage or current output for download to a PLC or other control system. The sensor also supports a Bluetooth interface for remote programming and flow monitoring from a smart phone. The microprocessor-based FAC-S Sensor supports process monitoring, data acquisition and signal conditioning in various industries.
Sister companies AW-LAKE COMPANY and KEM Küppers Elektromechanik GmbH (KEM) announce the expansion of their TRICOR line of Coriolis Mass Flow Meters that now includes both standard and advanced flow meters and the addition of the TCD 9000 Series Transmitters that incorporate digital signal processing (DSP).
AW-LAKE COMPANY introduces the FAC-R Frequency to Analog Converter that changes incoming sensor frequency to both current and voltage analog output. FAC-R interfaces with a variety of frequency-out sensors and instrumentation, including flow meters, tachometers, pumps, motors, and linear/rotational encoders. An economical alternative to a PLC card, the Frequency to Analog Signal Converter is ideal for use in process monitoring, data acquisition and virtually any application when sending an analog signal to a PLC or other control system.
AW-LAKE COMPANY has introduced the TW Series Turbine Flow Meter for the most rigorous flow measurement applications. Ideal for use both on and off the oil field, the TW Series Turbine Flow Meter provides highly accurate (to ±1% of reading or better) and repeatable (0.1% repeatability) flow measurement of oils, water and some chemicals with a low cost of ownership.
AW-Lake Company, a North American manufacturer and distributor of flow meter products, announces the TW Series line of turbine flow meters. These new meters are specifically designed to be drop-in replacements for the Haliburton/NuFlow, Blancett, Cameron and Kimray turbine meters. “This new TW Series flow meter was specifically designed for the oil and gas industry/produced water applications. It is a rugged meter with an improved internal assembly, resulting in improved accuracies, more stable output signal and reduced operating noise over competing meters,” said Chris Husson, director of engineering for AW-Lake Company. Being marketed under AW-Lake’s new SABRE turbine brand name as an improved drop-in replacement, this new TW Series is available as a fully assembled meter or as a kit containing the internals only. The replacement kit can be used to do field repair of TW meters as well as on Haliburton/NuFLow, Blancett, Cameron and Kimray turbine meters.
MicroFlow, a new positive displacement spur gear flow meter, is specifically designed to maintain high accuracies at very low flow rates, even with low viscosity liquids. This is important to engineers designing systems requiring flow measurement of continuous flows at rates as low as 3 cc/min or lower, depending on liquid viscosity. “The new MicroFlow is an important addition to our gear meter product portfolio, as it provides a very low flow, high resolution solution to our customers with the same quality and electronics compatibility as our other meters, even for those needing a hazardous rating,” stated Chris Husson, director of Engineering for AW-Lake Company. With a resolution of 40 pulses/cc, it gives the ability to measure shot volumes as low as 5cc’s with accuracies of ±0.5 percent better. This is especially important in the oil and gas industry where many applications are low volume and low flow applications.
