Universal Flow Monitors, Inc. announces the availability of CoolPoint™ vortex shedding flowmeters with Intrinsic Safety as an option. CoolPoint™ vortex shedding flowmeters are electronic instruments that measure and monitor water flows. Unlike mechanical switches, the vortex shedding meters have no moving parts to stick or coat, eliminating potential for clogging.
The Intrinsic Safety feature is available on ¼ inch, ⅜ inch, 1/2 inch, ¾ inch, 1 inch, 11/2 inch and 2 inch CoolPoint™ meters. The transmitter with Intrinsic Safety is a 2 wire 4-20mA transmitter that has approved barriers and no display, alarm or pulse output. It conforms to requirements for NEC Class I, Division 1, Group D environments.

--Brass body with viton seals and PVDF sensors--Available in pipe sizes ranging from 1/4 inch to 4 inches
--Flow repeatability is +/- .25 percent (1/4 of 1 percent)
