Overview

The most convenient and reliable hazardous area clamp on flow meter for the Hydrocarbon Processing Industry!

The H831 is the only Clamp-on Ultrasonic flow meter certified for installation in Zone 1 ( FM Class 1, Div. 1 to come) hazardous areas with the ability to report standard volume flows and API determination in the Hydrocarbon Processing Industry.

The FLUXUS H831 is FLEXIM’s new hazardous area rated flow and analytical measuring system for the hydrocarbon processing industry (HPI). This sophisticated and highly accurate non-intrusive flow meter combines very precise ultrasonic flow and sound speed measurement, advanced calculation features and diagnostics with a robust, durable and industry minded “fir for purpose” explosion/ flameproof housing. The H831’s nonintrusive flow meter built-in HPI computer calculates API gravity, operational density, density at base conditions and kinematic viscosity. Volumetric flow rates reported by the meter are automatically compensated for live temperature and pressure inputs according to industry standards ASTM1250, GPA TP25 and D4311 thus allowing for precise and dynamic standard volume flow measurement of liquid hydrocarbons even in the most demanding environments.

In addition to advanced and sophisticated measurement capabilities, the FLUXUS H831 flow meter is equipped with a hydrocarbon-specific database for a wide range of applications and process conditions ranging from light hydrocarbons to crude oils/refined products to heavy hydrocarbons at refineries, tank farms, oil terminals and transport liquid pipelines. Since Oil and Gas processes and operations vary from location to location, application-specific parameterization is also easily possible via a user-friendly editable table residing in the transmitter and allowing customization of liquid names and physical properties (density, API).

Typical applications for the FLUXUS H831 are mass balance, leak detection and interface detection, product identification in tank farms and oil terminals, quality check measurements and verification or temporary replacement of stationary measuring devices.
