pelton wheel flow meter Flügelradzähler-800-Serie

pelton wheel flow meter 800 series

Functional description

The 800 series of turbine flowmeters is a cost-effective and performance-optimized range available in six different flow ranges from 0.05 to 15 L/min. These meters are characterized by their high performance and competitive pricing. Thanks to their fully non-metallic wetted components, they are ideal for measuring aggressive chemicals, including ultra-pure water. The device is NSF-certified, making it particularly suitable for use in the food and beverage industry.
The radially driven turbine in the 800 series is based on the Pelton wheel principle, where a jet of fluid is directed at a turbine wheel mounted on robust, low-friction sapphire bearings. These bearings ensure the long life and reliability of the meter. The geometry of the turbine wheel and the fluid chamber ensures that the rotational speed of the rotor is proportional to the flow rate. This radial arrangement allows more energy to be transferred to the turbine, making bearing drag less significant and allowing the bearings to be stronger and more durable.
The standard inlet tubes are barbed to accommodate two hose sizes (8 mm and 12 mm), with alternative options available for OEM applications. The housing is standardly made of molded PVDF, and the O-ring seal is typically made of Viton®.
These characteristics make the 800 series turbine flowmeters an ideal choice for precise flow measurements in a variety of industrial applications. Typical applications include laboratory tests, cooling systems, active flow alarms, semiconductor plants, engine tests, and the food and beverage industry. This wide range of uses demonstrates the versatility and reliability of the 800 series in various industrial environments, particularly where chemical resistance and reliability are required and cost efficiency is a concern.
