The complete monitoring solution Flow and temperature: Measure, display, switch, transmit. Webtec has launched the latest hydraulic flow monitoring solution, called the FlowHUB, at the Hannover Fair 2009. Aimed at hydraulic system designers and maintenance engineers, the compact FlowHUB can replace up to six components in a hydraulic system. Applications are diverse and include condition monitoring, component testing and closed-loop machine control.
This brand new product can measure, display, switch and transmit flow readings in a fluid power or lubrication circuit as well as measure and display temperature. Three years of development has led to the FlowHUB using a unique sensing technology (Patent pending) designed to both minimise energy loss through pressure drop and ensure excellent resolution even for heavy-duty applications.
At launch, there will be 80 models of the FlowHUB covering 5 flow ranges up to 360 lpm and rated at either 210 or 420 bar. Each flow size will be available in three standard versions: ‘Switch’, ‘Transmitter’ and ‘Ultimate’ as well as the opportunity (volume permitting) to specify Custom / OEM versions which can be engineered to meet the requirements of special applications.
