Titan Enterprises have introduced a combination package of 800 series turbine flowmeter and Pulsite Solo display unit as a replacement for their 800 Series Displaying Turbine Flowmeter (800D).
The package has been designed to offer users more versatility, more information and the ability to read the display remotely when the flowmeter is located in an inaccessible or environmentally unfriendly location.
Compared to the display used on the 800D flowmeter, the Pulsite Solo display unit offers better resolution as well as enunciators to confirm the units and settings selected. Power consumption is lower, and the display can be located remotely from the flowmeter. Designed for ease of use, the unit is programmed by using two front panel keys and following the prompts on the LCD display.
When used with the battery-power 800 series flowmeter, the replaceable battery life is estimated to be well in excess of five years, where the Pulsite Solo is used as a flow totaliser. With rate readings, the life of the Pulsite Solo will depend on the duty cycle but is still several years. The Pulsite Solo can also be externally dc powered if required – for example when used with an electronic sensor such as a standard Hall effect device.
The flow indicator will take frequencies from dc through to 2 KHz and scale them to display rate or total. Scaling factors are adjustable from 0.01 to 9999 and the time base is selectable as seconds, minutes or hours.
The 800 series turbine flowmeter is designed to give high performance and competitive pricing with 6 flow ranges from 0.05 to 15 L/min. Using totally non-metallic wetted components make the 800 Series suitable for metering of aggressive chemicals. The standard inlet tubes are barbed to accept two hose sizes 8mm and 12mm – although alternatives are available for OEM use. The bearings are made of sapphire for long life and reliability, the body is moulded PVDF as standard and the 'O' ring seal is typically Viton.
