Air Flow Measurement

Challenge: How to accurately measure air consumption at specific points of a compressed air system over a significant time period.

Myth: An estimate of average flow is sufficient

Learn from us: To gain an accurate understanding
of an air compressor system's air flow, it is important to measure the amount of compressed air being used at any given time, not just an average flow. Demand spikes can occur at any time with varying intensities and durations. This kind of data should be recorded and considered when assessing the true air flow of any compressed air system.

Hope Air Systems responds: Hope Air Systems engineers and technicians are trained in the use of special monitoring equipment designed to help you improve your air system's productivity, reliability and efficiency. Hope Air System's air flow measurement tools use mass flow meters to record the actual amount of compressed air being used. Flow meters can be inserted into compressed air piping while under pressure, installed in bypass piping, or installed during a shut down. We use high quality flow meters with very low pressure drops, excellent accuracy and repeatability as well as fast response times.

These flow meters output standard signals to a recording device that collects the data for review by our technicians and engineers. In large, centralized compressed air systems, several flow meters may be necessary for a complete air demand provirtual.

Let's measure air flow

The Hope Air Systems air flow measurement provides the following:

  • can be installed when system under pressure
  • can be installed when system at shutdown
  • several flow meters can be installed for larger systems
  • measures demand spikes over long period of time
  • provides repeatability of measurement
  • data collected by recording device for later analysis
