Thermal mass flow meter
Thermal flow meters are primarily used in air and gas flow measurement applications. The meters consist of a transmitter and probe with temperature sensors (RTDs) located in the pins at the bottom of the probe. One sensor measures the process temperature and the other sensor is heated to a specific temperature above this. As the flow rate increases, heat gets taken away from the heated sensor in the form of convective heat transfer. Some manufacturers utilize a variable power operation to keep the temperature difference constant, while others keep the power constant and measure the temperature difference. The Magnetrol® Model TA2 measures the power it takes to maintain a constant temperature difference between the sensors. This relationship between power and mass flow rate is established during calibration.
THERMATEL Model TA2 Thermal Mass Flow Transmitter provides reliable mass measurement for air and gas flow applications. The powerful, yet easy to use, electronics are contained in a compact explosion proof enclosure. The TA2 is available with both insertion probes as well as flow body design for smaller pipe sizes. The TA2 offers excellent performance at an exceptional value.
