Single-Point Thermal Insertion Flow Meter - 454FTB

Single-Point Thermal Insertion Flow Meter – 454FTB

Single-Point Thermal Insertion Flow Meter

We offer single point flow measurement for both dry and wet gas applications. Kurz Instruments was the first manufacturer to premiere this thermal mass flow meter, also known as the Kurz Series 454FTB-WGF, engineered specifically for wet gas, condensing gas, and biogas environments. The patent-pending design processes the dry flow signal independent of the effects of moisture in the process gas stream, making it the ideal flow meter for digesters, landfills, animal feeding operations, wet stacks, and mining. As for dry applications, the Kurz Series 454FTB is the premier single-point insertion thermal mass flow meter for industrial gas flow measurements. The 454FTB supports process temperatures from -40°C to 260°C and from -40°C to 500°C, process pressure ratings up to 300 PSIG, and a velocity range from 0 to 24,000 SFPM.

Multipoint Thermal Insertion Flow Meter - K-Bar

Multipoint Thermal Insertion Flow Meter – K-Bar

Multipoint Thermal Insertion Flow Meter

Like the single-point meters Kurz provides, an alternative multi-point insertion flow meter is available that can measure wet stacks, condensing gas environments, and biogas applications. This multi-point meter, also known as the Kurz K-BAR, processes the dry flow signal independent of the effects of moisture in the process gas stream. K-BAR 200B-WGF flow meters have effectively no impact on the flow stream, proven high accuracy, and are highly economical for both initial and maintenance cost. Kurz offers up to four sensors for measurement redundancy and to ensure accuracy. Its rugged design withstands the high stress and high vibrations found in large industrial stacks and ducts that commonly have wide-ranging velocity and temperature profiles. The K-BAR 2000B supports process temperatures up to 260°C or up to 500°C.

In-Line Thermal Flow Meter - 534FTB

In-Line Thermal Flow Meter – 534FTB

In-Line Thermal Flow Meter

The Series 534FTB The Kurz 534FTB is designed with built-in inlet and outlet piping reducers/expanders to produce exceptional immunity to upstream and downstream flow disturbances caused by elbows, valves, and line size changes. The patented technology results in output with exceptional low end-to-end pressure drop and the fastest response to velocity and temperature changes in the industry.

The Series 504FTB in-line flow meter is designed for applications where flow disturbances or line size changes are not an issue. The 504FTB is available in 10 models for inline sizes from ½” to 4” pipes.

Portable Thermal Flow Meter - 2445

Portable Thermal Flow Meter – 2445

Portable Thermal Flow Meter

The Model 2445 High-Temperature Portable Flow Meter is designed for very high temperatures (500°C) applications, such as coal-fired power plant stacks, and primary and secondary air ducts. The Model 2445 is available in five fixed lengths from 24” to 72” with a 3/4″ diameter sensor support. The rugged all-welded construction and large size of the Model 2445 make it ideal for dirty and corrosive environments. It includes an all-metal display module, battery charger, carrying case, and several accessories.

The Model 2444 Heavy Industrial Portable Flow Meter provides the flexibility for a wide variety of field measurement applications because of multiple 16” sections that can connect up to 64.5” long. The Model 2444 works with high temperatures up to 200°C. It includes an all-metal display module, battery charger, carrying case, and several accessories.

Additional models are available incorporating design features optimized for unique applications, in turn balancing demands. One such model is the 2440 series which is specialized for laboratory and HVAC applications.

These models include a programmable data storage feature which is useful for protecting your data from being lost, with a convenient retrieval capability.

Flow Averaging Transmitter - Series 255

Flow Averaging Transmitter – Series 255

Flow Averaging Transmitter

The Kurz Series 255 Flow Averaging Transmitter is a versatile system transmitter designed for measuring flow rates in very large ducts that have non-uniform or unstable velocity profiles and/or wide temperature ranges. The Series 255 is a state-of-the-art microprocessor-based system that powers and reads up to 16 independent sensing points, providing a grand average of the flow and temperature. The Series 255 continuously reads and analyzes flow and temperature data from the individual channels, and automatically removes channels from the average that are under alarm or have been removed for service or repair. The Series 255 is designed for high reliability and high availability with multiple and independent power and communication ports so that wiring issues will not bring down the entire multisensor network.
