Flexim Fluxus F608 Hazardous Area Portable Ultrasonic Clamp-on Liquid Flow Meters

Flexim Fluxus F608 Hazardous Area Portable Ultrasonic Clamp-on Liquid Flow Meters

ATEX Portable Clamp-on Flow Meter for Liquid Measurement for Zone 2 Hazardous Area Applications

The Fluxus F608 is based on the portable clamp-on F601 flow meter but is especially engineered for hazardous area applications and is an ATEX certified solution for servicing, maintenance and commissioning requirements.

Due to the ATEX approval, clients are no longer required to obtain a Hot Work Permit allowing for easier access for zone 2 hazardous areas making the F608 an ideal solution to monitor and measure at points not covered by permanent flow meters.

Flexim’s F608 is designed to be used for upstream (on and offshore), midstream and downstream (pipelines & refineries), chemical industry and energy sector applications such as HVAC, geothermal and power plants.

The Fluxus F608 can be set up and provide reliable results in less than 5 minutes and can even be used when high particulate flows are encountered due to the HybridTrek function which automatically switches between transit time and NoiseTrek move of measurement to an ensure reliable readings are possible.

Transducers are provided according to the application requirements and are available to suit a diameter range from DN 10 to DN 6,500 and temperatures from -160ºC to +400ºC.
