Flowmeter

A brass variable-area flowmeter performs as a flow-rate indicator by monitoring process applications under pressures to 3,500 psi, temperatures to 240°F, and other conditions.

A brass variable-area flowmeter performs as a flow-rate indicator by monitoring process applications under pressures to 3,500 psi, temperatures to 240°F, and other conditions. The unit's indicator ring's linear movement gives a direct visual reading against the vertically graduated flow scale, eliminating further calculations or corrections. The meter lets users see changes in flow rate that may indicate a problem or wear and tear on the pump. The flowmeter can be installed directly into horizontal or vertical lines or with an inverted flow scale to monitor flow in a downward line. Indication accuracy is ±2% of full scale with repeatability within 1% in any mounting direction. The unit requires no flow straighteners or special lengths of straight inlet piping to stabilize turbulent flow patterns.
