Title: Measuring device for measuring the mass of a medium flowing in a line

Abstract: A measuring device for measuring the mass of a medium flowing in a flow line, in particular the aspirated air mass of an internal combustion engine, including a measuring element bathed by the flowing medium and disposed in a flow conduit of the measuring device provided in the flow line. The flow conduit extends in a primary flow direction between an inlet opening that communicates with the flow line and at least one outlet opening that discharges into the flow line downstream of the inlet opening. The flow conduit branches at a first dividing point, disposed between the inlet opening and the measuring element, into a measuring conduit, in which the measuring element is disposed, and a first bypass conduit, which bypasses the measuring element in the primary flow direction.
