Reusable Flow Sensor

SLE’s Reusable Flow Sensor is a very sensitive reusable flow sensor designed for use with the SLE4000, SLE5000 and SLE6000 neonatal ventilators. The flow sensor is a body containing two ultra fine (13 microns diameter) sensor wires which sit across the flow path. The ends of the body contain fine wire meshes to provide a laminar flow to the sensor wires. The sensor wires are fixed at the same height (central to the body) so that whichever direction the flow is, a difference in temperature can be measured between the forward wire and the leeward wire.


The hot-wire anemometer design means that it has an almost
instant response to the smallest of flows and is ideal for use on very
premature neonates.
• Adds a maximum 0.8ml deadspace to the circuit

• Reliable, maintenance-free operation
• High accuracy and repeatability
• Bidirectional response
• Fast response time
• Manufactured from polysulfone: a tough, rigid and high strength thermoplastic
• Small and lightweight
• Fully compliant with BS EN ISO 5356-1
