SCHMIDT® Flow Sensor SS 20.600 (B)

Flow rates of gases - an important measurand in industrial processes

 

The recording of flow rates in industrial processes is an important measure for energy saving, quality assurance in the production process, cost recording or distribution and much more.

 

The SCHMIDT® thermal flow sensor SS 20.600 is the robust solution for demanding industrial applications. It can be used for various applications such as compressed air monitoring, gas monitoring for process burners, consumption detection of gases and much more.

 

The SS 20.600 can also be supplied with special gas adjustment and thus be used, for example, in the field of biogas / sewage treatment plants (order option).
