Non-invasive compressed air flow measurement - with the FLUXUS G704CA

Compressed air is a very expensive form of energy. This is due to its efficiency: for every joule of mechanical work which is done with a pneumatic tool, approximately twenty times the amount of electrical energy must be spent. However, despite this poor yield, compressed air is practically indispensable in many industries because of its production-related advantages. This makes it all the more important to use the valuable medium as efficiently as possible.

Measurement creates Transparency

If you want to avoid waste it's necessary to measure. Through the precise detection of the current volume flow, components of a system can be dimensioned in a particularly cost-effective manner through the fast and unmistaken identification of possible overloads (such as when air velocities are too high) or malfunctions in the network. The exact assignment of consumption proportions to individual production stages also offers possibilities for fact-based, economic decisions. Moreover, the volume-flow measurement indicates the amount of compressed air lost as a result of leaks – an important economic factor, as every third compressor is operated only to compensate for air losses.
But how do you best measure compressed air flows? Non-invasively, of course!
