Clamp-on Micro Flow Sensor FD-X series

Low Flow Monitoring from Outside the Pipe

FD-X series - Clamp-on Micro Flow Sensor

The FD-X Series Clamp-on Micro Flow Sensor can be easily installed from outside the pipe and detect flow rates as low as 0.1 mL/min (and shot amounts as low as 0.001 mL). The device does not come into contact with the liquid, preventing problems such as pressure loss and clogging. The non-contact design also means the device is not affected by the properties of the liquid (ex. viscosity). Even coating/filling applications of grease, adhesives, flux, sealants, chemicals, and other liquids are possible with the FD-X series. The design also prevents pressure drops, enabling flow rate measurement with no adverse effects on equipment conditions, such as jetting and spraying functions. Also, this clamp-on technology means there is no pipe cutting or modification required.
