Mass Flow Meters
FCI designs, manufactures and sells a broad line of thermal mass flow meters for air and gas flow measurement. Thermal mass flow meter technology utilizes the relationship between flow rate and cooling effect for direct measurement of mass flow. With no moving parts and minimal invasiveness, thermal flow meters provide a highly repeatable, accurate, low cost, easy to install solution for air and gas flow measurements. FCI provides flow meters suitable for applications in pipes and ducts, as small as 1/4 inch [6mm] to the largest of stacks.
Thermal Differential Flow & Level Switches
KENCO’s Thermal Differential Switches are designed for a wide range of flow and level applications. These switches can be used to direct either the overall liquid level or a liquid-liquid interface. They can also be used to detect a specific flow rate or flow/no flow condition in liquids and gasses. The sensor consists of two Resistance Temperature Detectors (RTD’s). One RTD measures the temperature of the fluid around the sensor. The other RTD is self-heated. This provides a temperature differential between the the two RTDs. In a level application, the thermal conductivity of the liquid level is higher than the gaseous layer above the liquid. When the RTDs make contact with the liquid, there is a cooling effect with the liquid absorbing the heat from the heated RTD. This reduces the temperature differential increases, causing the relay to reset. This will also work in a liquid-liquid interface when the two liquids have different thermal conductivity (ex. oil and water). In a flow application, there is a temperature differential during a no-flow or low-flow condition (the actual setpoint is adjusted during the calibration procedure). As the flow rate increases, the temperature between the RTDs decreases, causing the relay to change state. When the flow rate decreases, the temperature differential increases, causing the relay to reset.

KSF Cast Body Sight Flow Indicators have a heavy duty cast construction to handle pressure and temperature requirements. A glass window on either side provides product visibility. Mechanical indicators to enhance the visibility of the media include flappers, rotors, and drip tubes. The cast body and threaded or flanged connections meet ANSI standards. Standard materials of construction are carbon steel, 316 SS, ductile iron, and bronze. Hastelloy C 276 and alloy 20 can also be supplied. Please consult the factory for pricing. The KSF Sight Flow Indicators are available in two series – ST and HT. The ST series is designed for standard temperatures and pressures while the HT series is designed for higher pressures and temperatures.
KENCO Chemical Injectors are designed to inject and properly atomize corrosive chemicals into the turbulent stream of a process system pipeline. The KENCO Chemical Injector will minimize the possibility of corrosive chemical build-up on the walls of the pipeline. KENCO Chemical Injectors are recommended for use in pipelines with a flow-rate velocity of 40 feet per second (12.192 meters per second), or less.
Thermowells are protective sleeves for temperature instruments designed to isolate the instrument from the process media and associated pressure.
