The new "Sensing Guide Pulse Method" allows for the detection of liquids while ignoring obstacles in the environment. This is achieved while also automatically adjusting to account for build-up.
The FL Series solves all problems of conventional level sensors that lead to false detection. This helps prevent costly downtime from situations such as boil-dry, tank overflow, or unintended liquid depletion.
These devices have an immediate startup process to save valuable time on initial setup. Various models with multiple output options are available. These allow for stable detection in any environment.
Compatible with a variety of pipe materials and liquids, the FD-Q Series Clamp-on Flow Sensor can detect the flow rate of a liquid without the need for any pipe modification. This device enables detection of a wide variety of liquids, including water (and pure water), oil, and chemicals. Detection is possible on both metal and resin pipes up to 2" in diameter. Unlike conventional sensors, installation and operation is also easy on high-pressure pipes. Costs are significantly reduced with the minimal installation required and the completely non-wetted design eliminates the risk of pressure loss or increased maintenance. Additionally, the large indicator provides real-time status information.
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.
KEYENCE's FD-R Series Clamp-on Flow Meter is designed for pipes as large as 8". Installation is easy and requires only a screwdriver. The device can be mounted to a variety of materials including stainless steel, iron, copper, PVC, and resin. Both flow and temperature monitoring is possible for a wide variety of liquids—from water (including pure water) to oil, chemicals, and high-pressure liquids—at temperatures between -4°F and +248°F. The device does not come into contact with the liquid, so there is no risk of liquid-based corrosion or degradation, reducing maintenance time and costs. The rugged metal construction includes an easy-to-read indicator light, and data can be recorded directly on the device. The IP69K enclosure rating and NEMA4X compliance make this sensor both highly reliable and convenient for indoor and outdoor use.
