Advantages of Sensor Technology: Accuracy and Meter Calibration

Importance of Sensor Design

The accuracy of a thermal mass flow meter is dependent upon the technology type and the quality of the materials used for the meter’s sensor design. A well-designed sensor is made to measure flow accurately over a long period of time with minimal drift, independent of recalibration and calibration validation diagnostics. For a thermal mass flow meter, the materials used in the manufacture of the sensor play a vital role in the overall performance of the sensor. The materials must create the best environment for heat transfer – the essential principle of thermal mass flow measurement – or the accuracy and response time of the meter suffers.
