Title: DUAL-PURPOSE HEATER AND FLUID FLOW MEASUREMENT SYSTEM
Abstract:
A control system for use in a fluid flow application is provided. The control system includes a heater having at least one resistive heating element. The heater is adapted to heat the fluid flow. The control system further includes a control device that uses heat loss from at least one resistive heating element to determine flow characteristics of the fluid flow.
