Optical Scientific Inc (OSI) has announced developments made to its advanced line of optical flow...
The OFS-2000 is OSI’s original patented and unequalled stack/duct flow velocity sensor for Continuous Emissions Monitoring Systems (CEMS).
The OFS uses EPA, approved Method 14 optical scintillation technology. Optical scintillation technique uses advanced Digital Signal Processing (DSP) electronics to measure the movement of turbulence found in a gaseous flow stream to provide highly accurate, path-averaged air velocity measurements. OFS accuracy has been proven by US National Institute of Standards (NIST) and at customer sites worldwide.
- Full cross-stack/duct measurement for superior accuracy
- Unaffected by distance and pressure, moisture or opacity
- Non-intrusive, nothing in the flow path
- No flow media high-temperature limits
- No calibration necessary
- Built in continuous self-test diagnostics
- Easy installation and alignment
- No moving parts: operates unattended – 24/7/365
- Rugged ultra-low maintenance design for harsh environments
