Cross Compressed Air Flow Monitor

Cross Compressed Air Flow Monitor

The Cross Compressed Air Flow Monitor is a self contained flow monitor that measures peak flow rate and total volume of compressed air consumed. It’s very simple to use and setup with just one air input and one air output, just connect it inline with your machine air supply, supply power, and it’s ready to go.

The Air Flow Monitor helps to reduce costs by helping detect air leaks that may go otherwise unnoticed. It also helps to reduce risk as it can proactively identify machine issues and maintenance needs before the machine goes down.

Improve Efficiency and Reduce Costs

Here’s a quick case study about an automotive parts manufacturer finding a quick ROI with the Cross air flow monitor:

Actively monitoring compressed air consumption can have benefits for your bottom line. One of our customers, a manufacturer of automotive parts, found significant savings after just a few months. They used the Cross Compressed Air Flow Monitor to record the amount of air being used by their cabinet cooler. This device utilizes compressed air to cool an electronics cabinet. Because it is exhausting to the atmosphere to cool the cabinet, any extra air used in the process is wasted. For this reason, they wanted to see if they could accomplish the same task while using less air.

Compressed Air Flow Monitor Features

The Cross compressed air flow monitor can provide a significant amount of tangible value for your operation. Some of the key features include

Self-contained Leak Detection

Our compressed air flow monitor is a self-contained device that is able to accurately detect air leaks. They do this by measuring peak flow rate and the total volume of compressed air consumed. Through this, you can significantly reduce compressed air loss and minimize associated costs.

Proactive Machine Issue Identification

Utilizing our air flow monitor, our customers can proactively identify potential machine issues before they cause costly damage through malfunctions. By continuously monitoring air flow and comparing those measurements to baselines, preventive actions can be taken to ensure smooth operations.

Connectivity Options

Our compressed air flow monitor offers a wide range of connectivity options, including 300 industrial standard protocols, built-in MQTT connectors for communication via Google Cloud, Amazon AWS, and Microsoft Azure, embedded OPC UA Client Driver and Historical Access, and much more.

Benefits of Our Compressed Air Flow Monitor

The Cross compressed air flow monitor can also provide tangible benefits to your operation. In addition, other benefits include

Easy to use – Connect to the compressed air inlet, supply power and you’re up and monitoring your air use

Establish a baseline – Know the peak threshold for your machine and compare against future readings to detect leaks

Know when there’s an issue – Alarms are triggered when a peak threshold measurement is surpassed

Data at your fingertips – Measures and records peak flow, constant flow and total volume of air used which can be transmitted through a variety of communication protocols to many databases and platforms

Did you know… Cross Company is an ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan). Our ESOP started in 1979 and as of 2006, we are 100% employee-owned! Learn more about our ESOP and how that benefits both team members and our customers.
Did you know... the precision measurement group at Cross was founded in 1939 by our current CEO's grandfather, Jim King. That's a whole lot of calibration!
Did you know... A fingerprint weighs about 50 micrograms. We know, we weighed it! The residue left from a finger can actually make a difference in weight results which is why we wear gloves when we calibrate weights. For reference, a sheet of paper is about 4.5 grams, that’s 4.5 million micrograms.
Did you know… Cross Company has grown significantly since our start in 1954. Over the years we've acquired 26 companies! Today, our five groups have expertise in everything from industrial automation to precision measurement, and industry knowledge going all the way back to 1939.
