How do I install the gas flow meter into the SFT-110, 110XW, 150, or 250 SFE Unit?
Optional flow meters can be purchased as an upgrade to the SFT-110, 110XW, 150, and 250 SFE Units. Locate the “L shaped tube” with sharp end (90° bend S/S tubing), the septa lid jar, 2 flow meter fittings, and 2 pieces of flexible tubing (as seen below).
Insert sharp end of “L” shaped tube into jar (or vial) with septa lid. Slide the septa jar (with the “L” shaped metal tube) into the collection assembly of the SFE outlet (see below).
Connect two (2) “Flow meter fittings into the back of the flow meter.
Use one piece of flexible tubing to connect the blunt end of the “L” shaped metal tube to the bottom of the flow meter. Use the other piece of flexible tubing to vent or hood (if desired)
Note: The flow meter measures the expanded CO2 gas. From this measurement, the amount of CO2 must be calculated. Typically under standard conditions 1ml of CO2 liquid = 450mls of CO2 gas
