The Latest Technology for Accurate and Repeatable Primary Air and Coal Flow Rate Measurements

The portable Advanced Coal Flow Measurement (ACFM™) system measures the flow rate of primary air and pulverized fuel (PF) in pneumatic transport pipes according to ASME PTC 4.2, or optionally to ISO 9931 standards. For over 20 years, the system has brought a state-of-the-art solution to the problem of performing reliable, efficient, and accurate flow measurements of primary air and coal flow.

The benefits of the ACFM are:

  • Greatly improved accuracy and repeatability of PF sampling.
  • Eliminate drudgery of coal pipe testing.
  • Reduced operator influence and lower personnel costs.
  • Complete more testing, faster.
  • Safer testing with the use of seal air fittings and dustless connectors.
  • Versatile PF sampler options, including ISO/SwivelSampler™/Rotorprobe™, ASME, ASE Motorized SwivelSampler™, and DAP.
  • Real time data review.
  • Automatic report generation in Excel® immediately after a test.
  • Touch screen PC and hand held remote controller to simplify the operator interface.

ACFM™ measurements include:

  • Primary Air Mass Flow Rate
  • Primary Air Velocity Profile
  • Primary Air Temperature
  • Primary Air Static & Total Pressure
  • Pulverized Coal Flow Rate
  • Primary Air/Coal Ratio
  • Atmospheric Pressure
  • Obtains PF Coal Fineness Sample
