Turbine Flow Meters
The basic construction of turbine flow meters includes a bladed turbine rotor which is axially suspended in the pipe. As the fluid flows through the pipe, it causes the rotor to spin on its axis at a speed which is proportional to the velocity of the fluid. The passage of each rotor is sensed by the turbine meter using gears, photoelectric cell or magnetic pickup installed on the outside of the flow tube or the meter body, adjacent to the perimeter of the rotor.
MT Turbopulse mini & the larger PT Turbopulse turbine series measure flows of low viscosity liquids from 3 to 550,000 litres/hr in a range of sizes from 1/4″ to 6″ (6mm~150mm).
The MT mini series have a tangential rotor with integral flow conditioning ports whilst the PT series have an axial rotor and flow guides, the PT series needs to be installed in straight sections of pipe either horizontal or vertical so that the flow is conditioned. The PT series have Exd & Intrinsically Safe (I.S.) approvals. Meters are available in Flanged or Threaded versions.
Both meter series are robust, compact & take little space in the piping system. Applications include fuels, alcohols, solvents, insecticides, milk, chemicals, water & light hydraulic oils.
