Typical Applications for Turbine Flow Meters

 

Turbine flow meters are compact, easy to install and accurate, so they are often fitted with an integral, battery powered flow rate indicator such as the Contrec Model 102D. Turbine flow meters also find application in a wide variety of industries, for example hygienic mixing and batching in food and drink manufacturing, dairies, distilleries, water and waste measurement and so on.

 

Turbine meters are versatile and effective, but they do have one limitation, they are significantly affected by variations in fluid density, for example changes due to temperature. Their turndown ratio is also typically limited to 10:1. We are always delighted to advise on your specific application and will supply the right meter for your needs.

 

How does a Turbine flow meter work?

 

A free-spinning rotor turns as the fluid passes through, the rotational speed is directly proportional to the flow rate. Small voltage pulses are generated in a magnetic coil sensor mounted in the wall of the flowmeter body and the voltage pulses induced are proportional to the flow rate.
