The SP521/522 turbine flowmeter has been developed for the testing of hydraulic circuits but its stainless steel construction allows it to be used for other applications such as the metering of water, solvents and chemicals. As well as flow measurement, the 2 additional 1/4” tappings allow pressure and temperature monitoring .
Liquid flows through the meter causing the rotor to turn. Every time a rotor blade passes the sensor a pulse is generated . The frequency of the pulses is proportional to the flowrate.
Installation and Setup
The flowmeter is installed directly into the pipeline. To reduce turbulence and get the best results from your flowmeter we recommend that you install it in a straight section of pipework with at least 10 pipe diameters before the inlet and 5 diameters on the outlet. Control valves should be installed downstream of the flowmeter.
