Darwin based solutions distributor Compressed Air Australia is introducing the latest flowmeter from American manufacturer Exair, which can be installed while compressed air piping is under pressure.

The Exair Hot Tap Digital Flowmeter reduces installation time as it eliminates the need to isolate and remove pressure from the pipe. It uses two valves that the measuring probes pass through, and has a sound muffler to collects chips from the drilling process during installation to reduce debris entering the air stream.

Airflow values are displayed on an LED screen, either in standard cubic feet per minute or in cubic metres per hour, and also features a data logger to capture information.

The flowmeters are shipped with all necessary hardware and tools for installation, inlcuding drill bit, drill guide, chip capturing muffler and hex wrenches.

The Hot Tap Digital Flowmeter has six variable sizes for 40 iron pipe and Type L Copper pipes – 2” (51mm) , 2-1/2” (64mm), 3” (76mm), 4” (102mm), 6” (152mm) and 8” (203mm) – and is now available through Compressed Air Australia.
