The Trimec Flow Products Dualpulse insertion paddle wheel flow transducer is a cost effective means of accurately measuring the flow of water, water-like liquids or a wide variety of low viscosity liquids in completely full, large diameter pipes. The sensor is inserted into the process piping via a suitable fitting. Liquid flow through the pipe results in rotation of the affixed paddle wheel. The rotational speed of the paddle is proportional to the flow velocity, and therefore, proportional to the flowrate in the pipe.
Important Benefit of the Insertion Meter!
The insertion type design provides a measuring technique that is much less expensive than full bore flowmeters, especially in larger pipe sizes. Insertion paddle wheel sensors are a robust measuring technology that boasts exceptional tolerance to dirt and solids.
- All stainless steel construction
- Suits pipes 40~2500mm (1.5~100″)
- Low installed cost
- Simple to install
- Unique head design to extend linear measuring range
- Two independent pulse outputs with high noise immunity (CE compliant)
- High pressure submersible design
- Hot tap option
Insertion flowmeters are installed with the metering head 1/8th into the pipe resulting in very little pressure drop. They do not require external power when used with the Trimec rate totalisers however some options such as high temperature models require external power.
Applications include HVAC, hot & chilled water, fire systems, water distribution (management & treatment), boiler feed water & hydrant flow testing.
