FloBar tubes contain no moving parts. Standard models are manufactured from stainless steel, though alternative material requirements are readily accommodated.


More details:

Process connection options range from resealable compression fittings, through fixed flanges to valved hot tap variants, making installation a straightforward operation. Local indication or retransmission devices mate directly with the FloBar’s integral three-valve manifold.
