Badger's new flow meters provide precise measurement at wide flow ranges

Badger Meter, a developer and manufacturer of flow management solutions, has made new additions to its Industrial Oval Gear (Model IOG) series of flow meters, which provide solutions for industries such as automotive, chemical, oil and gas, pulp and paper, metals, printing and rotating machinery.

Badger Meter's Model IOG flow meters are designed to measure very viscous (up to 1,000 cP) and caustic fluids, such as oils, coolants, fuels, lubricants, ink, paint, water solutions and other liquids. The meter line is accurate (+0.5 to +1%) and repeatability (+0.03%), even in low-flow environments, and measure liquid flows as low as 0.07 gallons per minute (gpm) and up to 185 gpm.

The units are compact, suitable for either vertical or horizontal installation into confined areas, and do not require a straight run of pipe or flow conditioning. Models are available in either aluminium or 316L stainless steel construction.

Durable construction means these flow meters can be employed in harsh environments where conventional flow-measuring equipment cannot. This includes processes with fluid temperatures from -30-120°C.

The oval gear configuration means the number of wearable parts in minimal, ensuring long service life and easy field maintenance. Models are available with a choice of NPT or BSP threaded connections, or ANSI 150 or 300lb flanges. A variety of instrumentation, both meter- and remote-mounted, is offered for control system interfacing or local monitoring.
