KROHNE launches DK32 flowmeter with electrical signal output

KROHNE, a major manufacturer and supplier of solutions in industrial process instrumentation, has launched its DK32 variable area flowmeter with an electrical signal output.

The new version of the DK32/ESK3x with 4 20mA/HART 7 communication is now available and can be used for continuous monitoring, logging, or control of low flow applications of liquids and gases.

As part of the KROHNE portfolio for 60 years, the DK32 series is a “true KROHNE classic” for small flows, according to the firm, typically used in 4 12mm/ 1/8, 1/2" pipelines, with local indication of current flow via the mechanical scale.

The new flowmeter features a compact design, eliminating the need for straight inlet and outlet sections, and an adjusting valve for flow regulation.

With available hazardous area approvals, typical DK32 areas of application include process or carrier gases; dosing of chemicals or additives; vessel inertisation; purging; monitoring or analyser sample flow, or seal gas/barrier fluids.

According to KROHNE, while previously only MIN/MAX limit alarms were possible in these applications, the new DK32/ESK3x can transmit the current flow to a PCS via 4 20mA/HART 7 at a competitive price-to-performance ratio in terms of purchase and operation.
