Titan Enterprises radial flow turbine flowmeter range is suitable for accurately measuring the flow of low viscosity liquids.
For smaller diameter pipe applications, the flow of fluid is directed at the turbine, mounted on robust low friction sapphire bearings. The geometry of the turbine and the fluid chamber ensures that the rotational speed of the rotor is proportional to the flow rate through the device. This radial arrangement enables more energy to be imparted into the turbine so the bearing drag is far less important.
At higher flow rates, the flowmeter design allows some of the fluid to bypass the turbine chamber, which then behaves as a ‘shunt’ to the metered fluid. As a result accuracy is still maintained and the output remains linear.
Optimised Titan Enterprises radial flow turbine flowmeters are available for a diverse range of applications including measuring low viscosity flow in chemical plants, semiconductor fabrication, drink dispensing equipment and fire hydrant monitoring systems. All Titan Enterprises turbine flowmeters have rugged bearings and offer excellent repeatability. A wide choice of fittings is available to suit the function of the flowmeter.
