SICK’s FFU in-line flow-measurement sensor uses modern ultrasonic flow-measurement principles to deliver accurate flow and volume measurement for conductive or non-conductive fluids.

The FFU combines a flow meter, switch and display in a single compact device.

With the capability of measuring the flow of fluids with a range of temperatures, viscosities and densities, the FFU is suitable for sensing flow control in machine tools, hydraulic circuits, cleaning machines and CIP systems.

With a seal-free design and no moving parts, the FFU is maintenance free, providing a reliable and cost-effective solution.

The sensor tube is manufactured from a highly stable Polysulfone (PSU) thermoplastic material suitable for use with a range of chemicals.

The unit is available in four sizes, covering pipe diameters between 10 and 25mm, and flow rates up to 240 litres/min with a +/-2 per cent accuracy.

The FFU is also available in an EHEDG-certified model for hygienic environments.

The FFU features a large display and intuitive menu structure, making it easy to configure.

The units shown on the display are user selectable for litres/min, ml/sec or gal/hour.

For communication of data to a PLC environment, the FFU provides a 0/4-20mA analogue signal and a digital NPN/PNP output.

The digital output can be configured for empty pipe detection, low/high flow rate indication or as a pulse output.

When configured to pulse output, the FFU can simulate the electrical output of oval wheel flow sensors.

This makes the FFU suitable as a maintenance-free substitute for mechanical flow sensors.
