The FCO752 offers a no-compromise approach to all production line flow measurement requirements. In addition to standard flow tests the FCO752 can be used for leak testing as well as carrying out blockage tests for determining partial blockages in products and components. Used to test a wide variety of different components including Exhaust systems, Laser drillings, Medical devices, Cookers, Gas Fires, Boilers, castings, and fuel pumps to name but a few.
The FCO752 is quite possibly the most flexible, reliable, and diverse flow meter available today.
Using Furness Controls Laminar flow technology, the FCO752's versatility is well proven in many production environments. To cover the multitude of products tested throughout industry, the FCO752 has been designed to offer maximum flow ranges from 20.00 ml/min to 10,000 l/min (10 flow ranges available). The FCO752 can also be supplied to "dual range", offering the user the facility to read high and low flow measurements on one instrument without the loss accuracy or display resolution.
The FCO752 features pressure and temperature compensation giving automatic correction to the leak reading regardless of the actual test pressure and temperature. The leak reading displayed is the equivalent leak that would occur at the pressure and temperature entered in the test data. This negates the need to constantly monitor the set test pressure.
The single test model is ideally suited to where a single product type is being tested on a production line. The enhanced multiple test variant is available for when more than one product type is to be tested in the production environment. Differing product types can be tested at differing test pressures, as is necessary. The multiple test variant allows for a sequence of tests to be programmed into the instrument for when more than one test is required on a given product type.
Where more than one test pressure is required to test different products or where a sequence of tests needs to be carried out at differing pressures, the FCO752 can be offered with automatic pressure regulation. This guarantees the test pressure set in the instruments test data is maintained regardless of flow rate and negates the requirement for the operator to set the test pressure each time a different test is required.
The FCO752 can be used to check for partial blockages within products and components or for checking cross-sectional areas (against known standards). By switching the instrument to operate in "pressure" mode, changes in generated back pressure as low as 0.1 Pa can be determined.
