CDI 5200 for pipes up to 1.5″

Price Range: $465 – $575

The CDI 5200 clamps onto a pipe, with two flow-sensing probes projecting into the pipe through 3/16-in. drilled holes. It seals directly to the pipe; no cutting or welding is required for installation. Because each flowmeter is made and calibrated for a specific size of pipe, the digital display indicates flow directly, with no setup or adjustment.





  • Easy to install
  • No moving parts
  • Weather resistant and surge protected
  • Milliamp output
  • Pulse output convertible to threshold output
  • User-configurable scaling, filtering and units of measure
  • Optional wired and wireless outputs for networking

The CDI 5200 is a true thermal-mass flowmeter, adapted for easy installation in existing piping systems. Its large, bright LED display is easy to read from a distance and its weather-proof enclosure and surge protection make it suitable for outdoor installation. A 4-20 mA output and a pulse output are standard; wired and wireless outputs are available as options.

The CDI 5200 meters are commonly used for point-of-use monitoring of compressed air in textile mills, food packaging plants, groundwater remediation, printing plants and bottling plants; they are also widely used for branch-line monitoring.

The display can be configured to show flow in scfm, m3/min and m3/hr; it can also be configured to display daily usage or cumulative usage rather than current flow.
