Since 1911, Meriam has been manufacturing top of the line products for use around the world serving industries such as chemical, petrochemical, Oil & Gas, utilities, automotive, and laboratory with a variety of products including Laminar Flow Elements. Because of their use in these important industries that require the highest levels of accuracy and quality, it is important to ensure proper Laminar Flow Element Calibration. Applications of the Laminar Flow Element include Process air and gas measurement, engine air intake measurement, emissions analysis, flow benches, calibration standard/reference, and component leak detections. Laminar Flow Elements are inherently high in accuracy with stable calibration and excellent response time and repeatability, but that does not mean you should skip Laminar Flow Element Calibration and other maintenance to ensure they continue to operate at their highest levels of performance.
“The LFE matrix is made from individual SS tubes or windings of SS foil, these tubes are long enough, relative to their inside diameter to cause laminar flow to occur inside each tube, the result is a near linear relationship between DP and flow rate. The DP generated across the matrix responds very quickly to changes in flow and pressure loss to the system is reduced as each LFE is sized to produce no greater than 8” water column at maximum flowing conditions. Individual tube diameters are very small so flowing gases need to be clean and dry to preserve the calibration. Filtered inlet versions of most LFE models are available to keep the matrix clean and the calibration constant.” (Description from the product website )
