Energy saving Flowmeters

Written by: Tom Austin-Morgan | Published:

Titan Enterprise's insertion turbine flowmeters combine proven robust technology with modern materials and design. The Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF) turbine on insertion turbines rotates freely on a 316 stainless steel shaft and has aerofoil shaped blades to extend the dynamic range of the meter.

The contoured housing is said to improve the meters linearity particularly at lower fluid velocities. Each meter contains two sensors, one self-powered (for battery operated equipment) and the other an open collector transistor. A reed switch may be specified for hazardous areas where simple apparatus is acceptable. The body is manufactured from stainless steel and is supplied with three metres of five core screened instrument cable.

These insertion turbines provide a cost effective and simple means to measure the flow of a range of low viscosity liquids. Installation is said to be quick and inexpensive in pipes from 40mm to 900mm in diameter. Due to the small disturbance a Titan insertion flow meter head introduces to a pipe, pressure losses for this type of flowmeter are low delivering significant energy savings by reducing pumping costs.

For rate and total applications, Titan offers self-powered instruments (MetraCount, MetraSmart) that can be mounted directly onto the insertion turbine meter to enable stand-alone measurement.
