All About Paddle Wheel Flow Meters
Paddle wheel flow meters are a type of flow meter that is used to measure the flow rate of liquids, gases, and sometimes even simple slurries. They work by using a spinning paddle wheel to measure the velocity of the fluid as it flows through a pipe or channel. The rotational speed of the paddle wheel is proportional to the flow rate of the fluid, and this information can be used to calculate the volume of the fluid that has passed through the meter
On metal and plastic piping systems, paddle wheel flow meters are increasingly used. The Truflo® paddle wheel flow meters are a great option for corrosive liquid media applications because they are available in PVC, PP, PVDF, and 316SS materials.
Paddle wheel flow meters are renowned for their high level of precision, which is crucial for applications requiring accurate measurement.
Cost-effective: Paddle wheel flow meters are an affordable and efficient way to measure flow rates.
Installing paddle wheel flow meters is simple, which can speed up the process and lower expenses.
Paddle wheel flow meters are made of sturdy materials, making them suited for usage in challenging conditions.
Low maintenance: Paddle wheel flow meters have a low maintenance requirement, which can lower downtime and maintenance expenses.
Paddle wheel flow meters are flexible; they can be used to gauge the flow of a variety of liquids, including chemicals, oils, and water.
Simple to read: Flow rate may be monitored and read with ease using paddle wheel flow meters’ clear, simple-to-read displays.
Low pressure drop: Because paddle wheel flow meters have a low pressure drop, the pressure of the liquid flow is not greatly affected by their presence.
Paddle wheel flow meters don’t have any moving parts, thus they endure less wear and tear and are less prone to malfunction.
Paddle wheel flow meters can be used in conjunction with other equipment to offer real-time flow rate monitoring and control, including alarms and controllers.
