S430 Pitot Tube Flow/Consumption Sensor

S430 Pitot Tube Flow/Consumption Sensor

The S430 is a sensor that uses the pitot tube principle of flow measurement. This sensor is designed to measure wet and dirty gases, as found in locations like the compressor discharge.

  • Reliable: ideal for compressor performance tests
  • Simple: effective, inexpensive, and fast measurements
  • Accurate: detailed metrics designed unpredictable outputs

Description

S430 Pitot Tube Flow/Consumption Sensor

Description

The S430 utilizes the pitot tube principle to measure wet and dirty gases that are found in places like the compressor discharge. This sensor boasts long-term reliability, wide turndown ratio, and highly-consistent temperature stability. It can be used in both compressed air and non-corrosive gases, and it can even be installed through a ball valve while the system is still pressurized. Various output signals allow the sensor to be connected to SUTO displays and/or third-party displays and PLCs.
