Digital Compressed Air Meter

Press Release:
  May 25, 2007 — Dwyer Instruments, Inc., the preferred source for your complete range of practical and affordable instrumentation, is announcing the release of its new Series CAM Digital Compressed Air Meter.

The CAM detects leaks in compressed air systems by using the calorimetric measuring principle. At a rate of 7-10 times more expensive than electrical energy, monitoring compressed air is essential to evaluating tool and equipment efficiency, as well as ensuring longevity. Leaks waste energy and money, and predictive leak detection and repair result in substantial cost savings. For instance, based on an assumption of electricity cost at $0.08/kWh, for 8,760 hours/year operation, where 1cfm = 0.18 kW; one hole of 1/16˝ diameter (or four holes of 1/32˝ diameter) at 100 psi would lose 26 cfm over the course of a year. A loss that substantial translates to $3,280 / year lost to energy expenditures.

The CAM offers a quick, accurate readout and is virtually maintenance free. The unit is available in three different process connection sizes: 1/2˝ NPT, 1˝ NPT, and 2˝ NPT, allowing the user to choose the size and range that best suits their needs.

Dwyer Instruments, Inc. produces a broad range of measuring and control instruments for pressure, temperature, level, flow, and many other related applications.
