Product Overview

LB 110

 

The accuracy of the measurement is dependent on the constancy of the mixing ratio of air and counting gas. Due to that the LB 110 ensures a good and reliable gas-air control. Measuring air and counting gas flow are measured separately and kept at a constant level via a control circuit. The current gas and air flow rate is measured using an electronically controlled flow-through meter which operates according to the principle of thermal mass measurement.

An essential benefit of this principle is that the measurement is largely independent of pressure and temperature. Compared to volumetric principles, neither pressure nor temperature has to be measured in addition. The electronics integrated into the air and gas module is used to control and evaluate the signals modified by the flow-through controller. Gas and air supply are measured separately and kept on a constant level by one control circuit each.
