Compressed air meters
Operating principle of compressed air meters
ifm efector’s Metris compressed air meters are capable of monitoring compressed air as well as common gases such as argon, carbon dioxide and nitrogen. It utilizes thermal dispersion as a measuring principle for accurate flow measurement. The process temperature is utilized as a base value. A secondary ceramic element registers flow as applied heat is wicked away.
Applications for compressed air meters are, for example:
- Compressed air systems
- Welding gas systems
- Utility monitoring

Automation24 carries the necessary meters to manage and monitor your compressed air applications at the best prices. ifm efector’s compressed air meters will optimize air and gas usage while improving system performance. Compressed gasses are one of the most expensive sources of energy consumption in a plant and a leak can waist up to 30% of a compressors output. By identifying leakage areas, ifm efector Metris meters can determine the amount of leakage, overall usage and verification of cost savings and system improvements. Setup is simple with pushbuttons and a four-digit numeric display. The integrated pipe lengths ensure easy installation and configuration.
According to ISO 2533 standards, the Compressed air meter SD8001 records consumption directly as a standard volume flow. This makes corrections, in case of temperature or pressure fluctuations, as necessary. Its high measuring dynamic allows it to capture even the most minute quantities. High accuracy and repeatability are ensured by the integration of the measurement sensor’s key elements into a defined pipe length.
