The S430 is based on the pitot tube principle to measure the flow in your compressed air system. Properly installed (refer to instruction manual for details) the sensor can measure in wet and dirty gases as occurring, for example, at the discharge of a compressor.
The S430 compressed air flow meter is made for the use in wet air, therefore it can be used directly at the compressor outlet. At this point other flow meters are likely to fail, becuase they are not able to withstand the wet and hot air. The S430 can be used in excatly these conditions, making it the perfect tool for compressed air audits and compressor efficiency measurements.
The sensor features long term stability , wide turn-down ratio and good temperature stability. It can be used in compressed air and non-corrosive gases. Through a 3/4” G-type ball valve the sensor can be inserted into the pipe under pressure. Various output signals allow the sensor to be connected to SUTO displays and/or third party displays and PLCs.
