Monitoring inline flow
Parker Fluid Control has built durability into its new inline flow meters.
Parker Fluid Control has built durability into its new inline flow meters. There are no moving parts to clog or wear out, which is good for accurate monitoring of media with small particulates in applications using water, water/glycol coolant and other low-viscosity fluids.
Parker’s Vortex Shedding Flow Meters operate with NPT ports ranging from ¼ to 2 in. and handle flows from 4 to 200 gpm with occasional over-ranging of up to 125% without sustaining damage.
They have 4 to 20 mA flow rate transmitters and the meters withstand working pressures from 10 to 300 psig while operating efficiently at fluid and ambient temperatures from 1.7 to 65.5 degree C.
Standard units are equipped with a solid-state relay that sets to a pulse output or a flow alarm.
Parker Fluid Control is a New Britain, Conn.-based division of Parker Hannifin, a manufacturer of motion and control technologies.
