How to Properly Clean the Mass Flow Sensor?
Sage thermal mass flow meters require little maintenance. The sensing element is somewhat resistant to dirt and particulate build-up. However, if the user mounts the meter in a filthy environment, it may become necessary to clean the sensor periodically.
If cleaning the sensor:
- Remove the power before cleaning.
- Use a detergent or appropriate non-corrosive solvent to remove the buildup.
- Use a soft brush to gently clean the sensing element’s surface (use caution to avoid damaging the sensor elements (the RTDs).
Note: If you need to do any disassembly to clean the sensor, contact Sage Metering for instructions or call 831-242-2030.
In general, we recommend that you return your Sage meter to the factory for cleaning, repair, or recalibration.
