Titan showcases high-pressure oval gear flowmeters

Based upon its proprietary oval gear design, Titan Enterprises OG-1 and OG-2 flowmeters are designed for use in high pressure applications.

Constructed from durable materials including 316 Stainless Steel and PEEK, the meters are well-suited for measuring flow at pressures up to 700 Bar and 150°C.

Designed to be IP-67/NEMA 4 compliant, Titan OG-1 and OG-2 high pressure flowmeters are available in standard and customer specified configurations.

The measurement accuracy of oval-gear flowmeters improves as liquid viscosity increases, from a nominal 1% to around 0.1% of flow rate at higher viscosities.

In the OG-1 and OG-2 flowmeters, oval-shaped, gear-toothed rotors rotate within a chamber of specified geometry, sweeping out and trapping a volume of fluid between the outer oval shape of the gears and the inner chamber walls, with no fluid passing through the gear teeth.

Ceramic magnets are embedded in the rotors, which then actuate a reed switch to provide a pulse output.

Each pulse or switch closure represents a precise increment of liquid volume that passes through the meter.

This process results in a flow measurement almost immune to the effects of varying fluid viscosity, density, and temperature.
