Optical Scientific Inc (OSI) has announced developments made to its advanced line of optical flow...
The OFS 2000F is specially developed for refinery flare stack applications where increased velocity scale, wider temperature range and quick response time are necessary.
OSI’s optical scintillation technology provides the most accurate, path-averaged air velocity measurements of any flare gas sensor. Its superiority has been proven again and again, in flare, air-assisted flare and SRU (Sulfur Recovery Unit) installations worldwide.
- Full cross-stack/duct measurement for superior accuracy
- Unaffected by distance & pressure, moisture or opacity
- Conforms to EPA 40 C.F.R. Part 60 Subpart Ja.
- Non-intrusive; nothing in flow path
- No flow media high-temperature limits
- No calibration necessary
- Accurate at low velocity and ambient temperature
- Installs in short runs – two dia. upstream, one dia. downstream
- Built in continuous self-test diagnostics
