Let’s say you’re a farmer looking to automate your farm with new technology. What would you need? A mass flow sensor is something that could be used on farms, anywhere there’s irrigation or water input, to monitor the amount of water or liquid added or withdrawn from the system. In this article, we’ll go into detail on what it is and why you might want to use them.


What Is A Mass Flow Sensor?

The flow sensor operates from a 5 Volt supply voltage and features a digital I2C interface. The measurement results are internally linearized and temperature compensated. The outstanding performance of this mass flow sensor is based on our sensor technology, which combines a thermal sensor chip and a high-performance integrated 24-bit AD acquisition CMOS microprocessor. The flow rate of the gas is measured by a thermal sensor element which assures very fast signal processing time and bidirectional measurement with best-in-class accuracy.

The sensors can be placed in either open or closed channels. Open channel sensors measure airflow over an entire channel while closed channel sensors measure airflow within a channel. Closed channel sensors are more accurate because they account for turbulence and eddies within the channel.

How Does It Work?

A mass flow sensor is a device used to measure the rate of flow of particles or liquid through a pipe. The sensor usually consists of several small, air-tight tubes connected in series. When the flow enters or leaves the sensor, the pressure changes inside the tubes and this causes a signal to be generated. This signal can then be used to quantify the flow rate and determine the direction of the flow.

Applications Of A Mass Flow Sensor

A mass flow sensor is a device used to measure the amount of fluid passing through it. This can be done by measuring the amount of air or fluid that flows through a given opening, or by monitoring the change in volume of fluid over time. This can be used in various applications, such as manufacturing, agriculture, and environmental monitoring.

One application of mass flow sensors is in manufacturing. They can be used to measure the amount of material moving through a machine, and help to optimize production. Mass flow sensors can also be used to determine when a machine is not working correctly, and need to be repaired.

Another application of mass flow sensors is in agricultural production. They are often used to measure the amount of water or fertilizer that is being applied to crops. This information can help farmers make informed decisions about how much water or fertilizer to apply, and help them to monitor the health of their crops.


All safety mass flow sensors have strict quality control, It can be applied to Medical, Process Automation, Burner control, Fuel cell control, Spectroscopy, Environment monitoring, and Laboratory. They are all standard, contact Saftty to learn more!
