CDI 5100 In-Line | CDI 5200 Small Pipes | CDI 5400 Large Pipes | CDI 25 Point-of-Use | CDI 6000
CDI flowmeters represent a radical departure from conventional designs. The meter clamps around a pipe with its flow-sensing probes projecting into the pipe through drilled holes. The low cost of the meters makes them ideal for installation throughout an air distribution system.
All of our Flowmeters:
- Install in minutes
- Measure mass flow by thermal dispersion
- Are CE certified and RoHS compliant
- Have built-in LED displays
"...we found that CDI Meters provided a good flow measurement product that was economically suitable for my purposes. It was simple to install so it provided quick and accurate flow measurements from the digital readout. It is what I was looking for to achieve my goal of measuring how much compressed air flow each machine used."Gregory Rhames, Verallia, Asset Reliability Manager & Energy Manager
To perform properly, our meters must be installed where the air is free of oil and water droplets; thus in a compressed-air system, they must be downstream of a dryer. They also must be installed with sufficient straight pipe upstream that the air will have a well-developed, uniform flow profile. A length equal to 20 times the pipe diameter is sufficient in most cases; more is recommended after long-radius elbows and other items that could distort or concentrate the flow. For additional application limitations, please refer to the data sheet for the meter.
Flow metering is useful and cost-effective at a range of locations in the typical compressed-air system. At the plant-wide level, it assesses compressor-room performance and plant-wide air-use efficiency and leakage. At the department level, it assigns responsibility for air usage and gives credit for progress in reducing air usage. At the point of use, it pinpoints leakage and inefficiency. Leading companies in several industries have found it cost-effective to install dozens or hundreds of meters at individual pieces of equipment and use them to determine where maintenance is required.
