Magnetic Flow Tubes 8400A and 8500A

Business Value

Foxboro flowtubes have performed tens of thousands of service hours without requiring repair or maintenance. With the Foxboro transmitter’s advanced electronics measurement accuracy is improved and provides reliable communications with remote control systems, thus ensuring accuracy and reliability while reducing maintenance costs. They measure the volumetric flow rate of virtually any conductive liquid.
