  • Kurz Thermal Mass Flow Meters

    1. 1. Why All Thermal Mass Flow Meters are NOT Playing in the Same Field--- or even the Same Game! KurzInstruments.com
    2. 2. The Company <ul><li>Founded by technical genius Dr. Kurz </li></ul><ul><li>First in industrial thermal mass, 34+ years </li></ul><ul><li>HQ & factory in Monterey California </li></ul><ul><li>Quality: ISO-9001, Nuclear, Mil spec, SIL-1, EPA GHG Requirement Certified </li></ul><ul><li>Kurz Technical Services </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Prior Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) test center </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Worldwide sales and service </li></ul>
    3. 3. The Products <ul><li>Rugged, Reliable, Proven Products </li></ul><ul><li>Capable of operating in the toughest, hottest and dirtiest applications </li></ul><ul><li>The ONLY Flow Meter and Flow Switch Company to have a 3 Year Warranty Standard for all Products. </li></ul>
    4. 4. GAS FLOW METER TECHNOLOGIES
    5. 5. Gas Flow Meter Technologies <ul><li>Thermal Mass </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Wind chill meter </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Differential Pressure </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Orifice Plates, Pitot Tubes, Venturi, Air Foils, etc. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Turbine </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Rotating fan </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Vortex </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Waving flag </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Coriolis </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Vibrating tube </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Ultrasonic </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Monitor pressure waves across pipe </li></ul></ul>
    6. 6. Gas Flow Meter Technologies Type Mass or Volume Turndown Range Low Flow Dirt Line Sizes Pressure Drop ($) Thermal Mass 1,000:1 Yes OK 1/8” – Insertion Low DP Volume 10:1 No Bad 1/8”- Insertion High Turbine Volume 50:1 No Bad 1/4”- Insertion High Vortex Volume 25:1 No Bad 1”- Insertion Low Coriolis Mass 100:1 No OK 1/8”-10” Medium Ultrasonic Volume 100:1 Yes Bad 2” – 120” Low
    7. 7. Where does Thermal Mass fit in? <ul><li>Where direct mass flow is beneficial over volumetric flow measurement </li></ul><ul><li>Low velocities </li></ul><ul><li>Wide flow ranges </li></ul><ul><li>Large duct size </li></ul><ul><li>High temperatures </li></ul><ul><li>Dirty applications </li></ul><ul><li>Low pressure drop requirements </li></ul><ul><li>High Vibration </li></ul><ul><li>Varying Pressures and Temperatures </li></ul><ul><li>Both flow & temperature </li></ul>
