New turbine flow meters measure low-viscosity and non-aggressive liquids

Badger Meter announces the introduction of the Vision Series turbine flow meters, which comply with lead-free provisions of the US Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) and are bisphenol A (BPA) free.

The compact meters are designed for flow measurement of low-viscosity and non-aggressive liquids, including de-mineralised water, alkaline solutions, oils, fuel, beverages, water solutions and coolants.

The Vision turbine flow meter is intended for use in diverse applications and industries, many of which are affected by the SDWA, which authorises the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to set health-based standards to protect against both naturally occurring and man-made contaminants in the nation's drinking water supply.

The Vision Series consists of two turbine flow meter models: the V1000 for measuring liquid flow as low as 0.026 gallons per minute (gpm) and up to 0.65 gpm, and the V2000 for measuring liquid flow as low as 0.13 gpm and up to 9.2 gpm. The flow meters provide accuracy of ±3% with resolution up to 70,000 pulses per gallon (ppg), depending on the model. They have a temperature range of –4…212° F and withstand operating pressure up to 362.50 pounds per square inch (psi).
