Overview

With the platform FLUXUS 532, FLEXIM has once again set a new standard. Compact and extremely cost-efficient flow transmitters for all important applications in the manufacturing industry, for food, pharmaceutical and building technology. 

Leading the way is FLUXUS G532 ST-LT, the tailor-made solution for all typical applications for saturated steam up to a temperature of 356°F. 

Non-invasive and cost-efficient 

FLUXUS G532 ST-LT measures the volume of steam from outside the pipe in a non-invasive manner. For users, this means important advantages when considering the total cost of operating a measuring point: 

Simple installation without cutting or welding work on the pipeline. No downtime necessary – the system remains fully available for current production, without any production losses. 

The transit time difference principle already works at 0.03 ft/s and does not need any reduction to the diameter of the pipe to artificially increase the flow velocity. This means there is no loss of pressure, and accordingly no loss of energy or costs caused by the measurement itself. 

Free from wear and maintenance-free 

Non-invasive also means free of wear and tear, as there is no contact with the medium. Long life without regular calibration, which would include de- and reinstallation, again reduces the overall cost for operating a measuring point. 

With Advanced Meter Verification (AMV), users are given a strong software tool capable of autonomously delivering comprehensive diagnostics and a subsequent protocol at any time.  

State of the art 

FLUXUS G532 ST-LT features Ethernet-based interfaces like the Modbus TCP, but also classic interfaces like BACnet and an analogous 4-20 mA power output.

Measuring data can be made available this way in real time, any time and anywhere, and is therefore suitable for IoT and smart metering.
