Turbine Flowmeters are the ideal solution for measurement applications in liquids, where there is a requirement for high accuracy, very fast response times, compact design, high reliability in continuous operation and flow changes at fluctuating temperatures.
The flow-sensitive element of this volumetric measuring instrument is a turbine rotor concentrically suspended on precision bearings. The flow of the medium imparts a rotational movement on the turbine wheel which is proportional to the velocity of the flowing fluid. The innovative helical design of the rotor blades guarantees improved linearity and reduced pressure loss. Because the flow passage is fixed, the rotation speed is also a real measure of the liquid volume flowing through the flow meter.
The rotation of the turbine rotor generates electrical impulses in the Pickoff. Each of these impulses represents a minute and well defined volume of liquid.
