Turbine flow meters are employed for both lower viscosity gases and liquids with turndown ratios from 7 to 30:1. The use of an appropriate zero drag electronic pick off in place of the standard magnetic tape is the reason behind achieving this extended range. The turbine experiences too much extra drag at low fluid velocities due to the standard magnetic tape. As a result, the rotational speed is slowed down.
FLOWTECH is a pioneer in the manufacturing of Turbine Flow Meter since last 18 years and known for its high reliability and repeatable measurements under the most demanding conditions. Turbine flow meters by flowtech are IS certified and are quality assured.
Applications of Turbine Flow Meters
Turbine flow meters find use in monitoring of clean liquid flows in chemical, petroleum and water industries. The custody transfer of hydrocarbons is one of the petroleum applications of turbine flow meters. In the water industry, turbine flow meters are used in distribution systems between and within water districts. Turbine flow meters are also employed in oil and gas, water and wastewater, gas utility, chemical, power, food and beverage, aerospace, pharmaceutical, metals and mining, and pulp and paper.
The advantages of turbine flow meters are given below:
- Simple well understood technology
- Suitable for gases and liquids
- Good performance
- Relatively wide operational envelope
- Low cost
- Easy to install and operate
