All F-5000 Series Thermal Mass Flow Meters provide accurate mass ﬂow measurement of natural gas, compressed air and other industrial gases. The proprietary sensor design measures mass ﬂow directly and does not require additional pressure or temperature compensation to deliver accurate ﬂow data.
The F-5200 is available as an inline or an insertion style meter. Both versions require 24 VDC power and are provided with a single analog 4-20 mA output and a separate scalable contact closure pulse output.

Every ONICON ﬂow meter is wet calibrated in a ﬂow laboratory against standards that are directly traceable to N.I.S.T. A certiﬁcate of calibration accompanies every meter.
Excellent Long Term Reliability -
ONICON thermal mass ﬂow meters employ a low maintenance, non-moving parts technology to sense ﬂow and are generally unaffected by debris in the ﬂow stream.
Highly Accurate Over A Wide Operating Range -
Our proprietary hybrid analog/digital sensing circuitry is very stable and yet highly responsive to changes in ﬂow. This stable yet responsive design allows for accurate ﬂow measurement over a very wide operating range (over 1000:1 for the inline version). It also makes the meter ideal for measuring low ﬂow rates.
Inline Meters Are Provided With Built-in Flow Conditioners -
Flow conditioners are built in to all ½” through 4” diameter inline meters. The ﬂow conditioner signiﬁcantly reduces overall straight run requirements for installation.
Insertion Meters Can Be Installed Without Interrupting Gas Service* -
ONICON’s hot tap design allows for installation without interruption to the gas service. The meter can also be removed for service without disrupting ﬂow.
Excellent Value -
ONICON insertion style meters are accurate, easy-to-use and reliable. They are also priced independently of pipe size. This makes them an excellent value, particularly in larger diameter pipes.
