Variable Area Flow Meter (Rotameter)

VARIABLE AREA FLOW METERS are frequently used in military, aerospace, chemical, petrochemical, water treatment, and waste treatment industries.

The Series 2000 Variable Area Flow meter is a rugged industrial flow meter available in a wide range of liquid and gas flow rates. The Series 2000 family includes flow meters with scale lengths of 150mm and 250mm, providing accuracies to ±1% of flow rate. Materials of construction are available for the most corrosive process applications.

The Series 2600 (Single Stage) and the Series 4600 (Multi-Stage) 600mm flow metering panels offer the highest precision available in our product line of variable area flow meters. The Variable Area Flow meter line has available capacities. of 2.8 cc/min up to 180 GPM for liquid or 100 cc/min to 750 SCFM for gas. Suited for temperatures up to 250°F / 121°C, the variable area flow meter line can be mounted in-line or as a panel installation. Connections are available as NPT or MS and Vertical/ Horizontal Flange.

The variable area flow meter series has a standard calibrated accuracy of ±2% full scale for the 250mm meter and ± 1% rate for the 600mm meter.

Optionally, the 600mm meter is available with ± 0.5 % rate accuracy. Length of the flow meter varies by series and model. 150mm (Model 2150); 250mm (Model 2250); 600mm (Model 2600). Graduation is shown as a direct reading on detachable scale with millimeter graduation on tube.

2600 Series Variable Area Flow Meter

SERIES 2600 INDUSTRIAL

The Flowmetrics 600 mm Single Flow Metering panel offers the highest precision available in our product line. Each meter is provided with a direct-reading, custom-engraved scale mounted adjacent to the metering tube. Flowmetrics’ scales are generated from data obtained in calibrations using fluid which simulates as closely as possible the customer’s process.

Featured Uses

  • Hydraulic component test benches
  • Fuel flow test benches
  • Polyurethane foam production
