FCI Offers Best Practices Engineering Guide

Guide provides data addressing atual field conditions

Fluid Components International (FCI) has released the new “Best Practices Engineering Guide: Installation Recommendations for FCI Single-Point, Thermal Dispersion Flow Meters.” Instrumentation process control and plant engineers with challenging air- or gas-flow measurement applications will find the guide provides succinct data addressing actual field conditions.

The guide provides recommendations and engineering practices for optimizing flow meter installations to ensure performance and accuracy in commonly found conditions and line sizes. The guide solves an industry-wide issue for all flow meter customers—wide variations in actual field conditions.

The most common installation constraint for all flow meters is inadequate straight-run. FCI’s new guide recommends engineering practices with diagrams and specifications for straight-run, installation orientation and depths. The guide also details the use of flow conditioners as an engineering solution for FCI single-point thermal dispersion flow meters. Additional installation aid provided in the guide includes Installation Orientation for Various Fluid Conditions and Optimizing Accuracy and Repeatability Performance.
