Product Details

The CDI 5200 clamps onto a pipe, with two flow sensing probes projecting into the pipe through 3/16 inch 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.

The meter measures flow by maintaining one probe warmer than the other. It calculates the mass velocity from the     amount of heat required, and then calculates the flow on the basis of pipe area. The flow rate, in scfm, is     shown on a large, four digit display; a 4-20 mA output and a pulse output permit remote display, totalizing and     data collection.
