Using a low flow, metal tube flowmeter, with corrosion-resistant wetted parts and magnetic coupled indicator provides a highly reliable method of indication and alarm for process analyzer supply line applications.

These compact flowmeters provide high temperature and high pressure ratings, explosion-proof and intrinsically-safe certification (ATEX, CSA, IECEx and NEPSI Approved), local readout, integral control (needle) valves, and optional transmitter or alarm output.  Operating ranges are typically up to 11 litre per hour, or 26 GPH. 

This approach provides a practical and economical approach to low flow rate indication for high pressure and difficult to handle fluids.
