FCI wins 2015 Control Magazine readers' choice awards for thermal flowmeters and flow switches
Readers of Control Magazine have selected Fluid Components International (FCI) as the number one supplier of both thermal mass flow meters and flow switches - an honour that has been bestowed on the company for almost two consecutive decades. The results of the 23nd Annual Control Readers’ Choice Awards represents the collective opinion of hundreds of process automation professionals.
FCI’s flow meters feature advanced thermal dispersion mass flow sensors. They combine precision flow measurement accuracy with a rugged design that is compatible with caustic, corrosive, humid and high-temperature environments. They are highly reliable, easy to install, require virtually no maintenance and are designed for long life.
FCI’s ST100 flow meter is a thermal dispersion technology gas flow meter. The ST100 meter combines feature- and function-rich electronics with advanced flow sensors to achieve what is claimed to be a state-of-the-science flow metering solution for industrial processes and plant applications.
FCI flow switches are suitable for a wide range of point-level process applications, featuring a no-moving parts thermal dispersion flow sensor. Their design also allows them to measure flow or level or temperature. The company’s NuTec flow switch utilises a non-contacting flow element that separates the sensor from the process media. FCI flow switches can be used for interface monitoring in mixed density media, such as foams, emulsion layers and slurries.
FCI’s fully NIST traceable flow calibration laboratories test and calibrate all FCI products to ensure instrument accuracy with the customers’ actual fluid and process conditions. FCI’s calibration laboratories are ISO9001:2008 certified and AS9100 compliant. The laboratories also meet MIL-STD-45662A and ANSI/NCSL-Z-540 requirements. The company’s technologies also include mechanical design, advanced materials, metallurgy, electronics and communications.
