oval gear meter 1l/min OG1
At the heart of the meter are a pair of toothed oval gears one of which contains chemically resistant magnets. Rotation is detected through the chamber wall by a Hall Effect detector, Namur sensor or a reed switch giving a number pulses per litre passed. The output is an NPN pulse or a voltage free contact closure either of which is readily interfaced with most electronic display or recording devices. This combination of materials and technology ensures a long life product with reliable, accurate operation throughout. PEEK is a superb material for gear and bearing manufacture, it has excellent pressure and velocity characteristics coupled with very good thermal properties and chemical resistance. For fluids with viscosities above 1000 cSt specially cut gears are required and the flow range is reduced for a given meter size.
