Vortex Probe VA40 ... ZG5 - fixed insertion depth, various sensor materials, working temperature range up to +240 °C

Product Description

Vortex probe VA40...ZG5:

Vortex probe VA40 with sensor head diagonal dimension 40 mm and connection housing.

Probe materials: stainless steel, Hastelloy, titanium and tantalum. Working temperature range up to +100, +180 or 240 °C. Standard sensor length 300 mm (other lengths on request). Process connection via probe guide piece SF with thread or flange. Optional with integrated temperature sensor Pt100.

Suitable for fixed measuring of actual flow velocity v [m/s], flow rate V/t [m³/h] and temperature t [°C] (optional) in clean as well as condensate and particle-laden gases. Signal evaluation with integrated transducer UVA (output temperature: 4-20 mA optional), separate transducer UVA or system unit µP-Vortex (VT-VA with integrated Pt100). For ATEX category 1/2G and category 1/2D (zone 0/1, zone 20/21) applications, an additional isolation / supply unit LDX is necessary.


Output signals:

  • 4-20 mA (flow-proportional)
  • quantity pulse / limit value
  • Configurable via RS232 interface and software UCOM (with integrated UVA).
