Thermal dispersion mass flow meter


A thermal dispersion mass flow meter is a type of flow meter that measures the flow rate of fluids based on the thermal properties of the fluid. It utilizes the principle of thermal dispersion, also known as thermal mass flow measurement.

The meter consists of two temperature sensors, typically placed in close proximity within a pipe or duct where the fluid flows. One sensor is heated while the other acts as a reference. As the fluid passes over the heated sensor, it absorbs some of the heat, resulting in a temperature difference between the two sensors.

The flow meter measures this temperature difference and calculates the mass flow rate based on the principle that the rate of heat transfer is directly proportional to the mass flow rate of the fluid.

Thermal dispersion mass flow meters are commonly used for measuring the flow rate of gases, including air, natural gas, and compressed air. They can also be used for some liquid applications. They are particularly suitable for applications where high accuracy, wide turndown ratio, and low pressure drop are required.

These meters offer advantages such as quick response time, low maintenance, and wide operating range. They find applications in various industries, including HVAC, chemical processing, pharmaceuticals, and wastewater treatment. They are especially useful in applications where other flow measurement techniques may be impractical or less accurate.
