Belimo has announced its ultrasonic flow sensors is a finalist in the 2020 AHR Expo Innovation Awards. The award is an annual competition that honors products, systems, and technologies showcased at the AHR Expo.
Trusted flow measurement is essential in maximizing HVAC system efficiency and ensuring occupant comfort. Belimo flow sensors utilize ultrasonic technology with glycol compensation to provide accurate and repeatable flow measurements of water and water/glycol mixtures without drift in HVAC applications.
The flow sensors have a patented automatic glycol compensation algorithm that selects the correct fluid properties for the flow and energy calculation eliminating manual input of glycol percentage for sensor setup. The algorithm can be applied to a range of heat transfer fluids, ensuring accurate and repeatable measurements. The automatic glycol concentration minimizes drift and provides flow measurement by continuously compensating glycol concentration in a hydronic system. The Belimo inline flow sensors are an advancement in thermal energy with ultrasonic transit-time technology that automatically measures and compensates glycol concentration. Fit and forget sensors to compensate variable and changing viscosities. The sensors have a rugged design with no moving parts, require no calibration, and provide repeatable measurements improving the control and efficiency of HVAC systems. All flow sensors are wet calibrated to simulate field operation and available with NIST traceable calibration certification. The FM series flow sensors offering are now available ½- to 6-inches.
