8" Laminar Flow Element

Meriam 8" laminar flow elements or more commonly known as LFE's or viscous flowmeters are excellent for measuring clean air or gas flow rates across the range of 100 - 1000 l/sec. Full scale flow produces around 200 mmH20 differential pressure drop, and they are typically linear across their operating range providing gas viscosity remains constant. This makes them an ideal choice for air intake measurement or clean high air flow measurements. The meter requires a differential pressure transducer connecting to the +ve and -ve ports. The dP sensor is not supplied with the element.

Laminar flow elements, when coupled to high a performance dP transmitter offer excellent flow measurement capabilities with near linear response across their operating range. They are often used in flow standard test rigs for the calibration of turbine, variable area and thermal mass meters. The meters' fine matrix needs to be kept clean and filtered at all times to minimise measurement error, and maintain the integrity for the meter calibration. Improvement to the flow linearity can be made with the addition of dynamic span tubes.
