Titan showcases insertion turbine flowmeters

Titan Enterprise's insertion turbine flowmeters combine robust technology with modern materials and design.

The polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) turbine on insertion turbines rotates freely on a 316 stainless steel shaft and has specially aerofoil shaped blades to extend the dynamic range of the meter.

The specially contoured housing further improves the meters linearity particularly at lower fluid velocities.

Each meter contains two sensors, one self-powered for battery operated equipment and the other an open collector transistor.

A reed switch may be specified for hazardous areas were simple apparatus is acceptable.

The body is manufactured from AISI316 stainless steel and as standard is supplied with three metres of five core screened instrument cable.

The insertion turbines provide a cost effective and simple means to measure the flow of a wide range of low viscosity liquids, and are easily and inexpensively installed in pipes from 40mm diameter up to 900mm diameter.

Due to the relatively small disturbance a Titan insertion flow meter head introduces to a pipe, pressure losses for this type of flowmeter are low, delivering significant energy savings by reducing pumping costs.
