No More HOT Work Permits!
The new FLUXUS F608 portable flow meter is based on the widely used, highly reliable and versatile F601, but has been specifically engineered for its use within hazardous areas and is covered by an ATEX certification.
Thus, users are not anymore obliged to obtain a Hot Work Permit, making the access to ATEX Zones much easier and less time consuming.
Offering a high degree of flexibility, without compromising on Safety!
The extremely resistant carbon fibre housing, together with the rugged transducer design, ensures a high impact protection as well as resistance against oil, water and many other liquids. The F608 portable flow meter shares the same efficient battery management as the F601, offering over 14 hrs. of remote measurement time.
Moreover, the measurement system can be fully set-up in less than five minutes due to the intuitive user guidance and the automatic transducer recognition. Its application range is unrivalled - from pipes as small as 10mm up to 6500 mm inner diameter and temperatures ranging from -40°C to 200°C (with the WaveInjector solution even from -160°C to 400°C).
The F608 goes where other portable devices can't
Being equipped with two flow channels, multiple In- and Outputs and an integrated data logger with a serial interface, the flowmeter is designed for direct usage in demanding environments, such as in the Upstream, Midstream and Downstream area as well as in the processing industries and the energy sector.
As known from all FLEXIM flow meters, also the F608 portable flow meter features a highly precise bi-directional measurement at fast and even very slow flow rates over a wide dynamic measurement range and is not prone to temperature and zero drift, being fully compliant to ANSI/ASME regulations.
However, the F608 is not only safe, accurate and reliable, but also very compact and lightweight, offering the user to even carry the complete measuring system as personal luggage for Offshore visits.
