Zero Impact on Process
The FD-H Series clamp-on flow sensor is easily installed, without any pipe modification, by simply clamping to the outside of a pipe, tube or hose. This series provides stable flow rate measurement regardless of the pipe or liquid. In addition to metal and hard plastic piping, hoses (including high-pressure hoses) can also be supported. This product can not only measure the flow rates of various liquids such as water, DI water, oil, chemicals, and coolants but can also tolerate bubbles, high temperatures, and highly viscous liquids. Connecting a concentration sensor and temperature sensor allows for the centralised management of multiple parameters, helping improve product quality, and decrease costs.
Countless Opportunities for Process/Machine Improvement
Supports Any Pipe, Type of Liquid, and Liquid Condition
KEYENCE clamp-on flow sensors perform detection from outside the pipe for a wide variety of applications. Now it is possible to monitor liquids with bubbles, high temperatures, and high viscosities.
A detachable display allows for remote monitoring while also clearly displaying current values, real-time graphs, historical data and more. Universal connectivity is achieved with a choice of control outputs, analogue outputs, and IO-Link. Additional features include high environmental ratings (IP65 & IP67), a built-in diagnostic function, and accuracy of 3% of R.D.
Extend Beyond Flow Sensing to Understand the Full System
Connecting other sensors to the FD-H Series allows for the continual recording and management of multiple parameters including liquid flow rate, concentration and temperature.
Mounting and Integration
The FD-Q can be mounted in 60 seconds without any pipe modification. The unit clamps on to the outside of a pipe with 6 standard screws and can even be done without shutting the machine down.
Liquids and Pipes
The FD-Q series can detect virtually any type of liquid. This includes the flow of water (including deionised), oils, chemicals, consumer products, etc. This detection is possible through both metal and resin pipes.
