Hire – Gas Flow Meters

Description

TVC’s Gas Flow Meter (GFM) and Nozzle Flow Meter (NFM) are compact, battery-powered units.

GFM
Fitted into the gas line downstream of the regulator, it takes in-line measurement of shielding gas flow. A single charge provides 24 hours of monitoring power, however, connection by mains allows for continuous operation.

Accounting for gas pressure and temperature measurement variables in the final display makes the GFM a powerful monitor and determining accurate gas flow rates is essential to significantly reducing shielding gas wastage.

  • Easy to read, the illuminated colour display gives clear indications of gas flow and peak gas flow for usage analysis
  • Confirms gas usage is in compliance with the welding procedure
  • Shielding gas flow measured up to 100 litres/ min
  • Pressure measured up to 8 Bar
  • Temperature measured up to 50°C
  • All shielding gases and gas mixes measured accurately
  • Contains user selectable gas mix from pre-programmed list of most popular gas mixes
  • Customised and special gas mixes available (factory set)
  • Data logs and records flow results, surge data, temperature, and gas pressure to internal memory
  • Imports recorded data into the data viewing and reporting software (downloaded by USB connection)

Three modes of data recording:

  • Screen data is logged on demand
  • Gas surge logged for up to 300 seconds
  • Set intervals programmable by the user to log the screen data

NFM
Takes the measurement of shielding gas flow right at the welding nozzle for the most accurate measurement of gas flow actually being used.

  • Easy to read, the illuminated colour display gives clear indications of the gas flow in poor light conditions and will display the peak gas flow for the gas usage analysis
  • Fixed inlet or an extension pipe for use on robots and automated machines where the nozzle is difficult to reach
  • Capable of measuring the nozzle flow up to 100 Litres/min
  • All shielding gases and gas mixes measured accurately
  • Contains user selectable gas mix from pre-programmed list of most popular gas mixes
  • Customised and special gas mixes available (factory set)
  • Confirm gas usage is in compliance with the welding procedure
  • Significantly reduces shielding gas wastage by confirming accurate gas flow rates at the welding torch
  • Optional data logging facility
