Turbine flowmeter is ideal for large pipe metering.
A new range of insertion turbine flowmeters for applications where installation and removal from the pipeline without interruption to flow is more important than extreme accuracy are available from Filton Process Control. Series 5000 flowmeters are simple to install and remove and are suitable for large pipelines, where the cost of inline meters can be prohibitive. These low cost flowmeters can be installed and removed through a suitable valve while the flow line remains under pressure. As fluid flows through the turbine assembly it causes the blades of a freely supported rotor to turn at a speed directly proportional to the flow velocity. A pick-up assembly fitted into the insertion stem immediately above the rotor detects the passage of each blade tip and generates a sine wave output, the frequency of which is proportional to the turbine rotor speed, velocity and flow rate. This signal may then be used in conjunction with local or remote signal conditioning electronics. The flowmeters can be fitted with different, interchangeable rotor assemblies and are available with a wide range of electronic signal conditioning and readout instruments.
