December 2, 2013

Badger Meter New Vision Turbine Flow MeterThe Vision turbine flowmeter from Badger Meter is intended for use in diverse applications found in the food, medical products, chemical, pharmaceutical, automotive and general industrial fields. Many of these applications are affected by the SDWA, which authorizes the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to set health-based standards to protect against both naturally occurring and manmade contaminants in the nation's drinking water supply. The Vision Series consists of two turbine flow meter models: the V1000 for measuring liquid flow as low as 0.026 gallons per minute (gpm) and up to 0.65 gpm, and the V2000 for measuring liquid flow as low as 0.13 gpm and up to 9.2 gpm. The flowmeters provide accuracy of ±3 percent with resolution up to 70,000 pulses per gallon (ppg), depending on the model. They have a temperature range of –4…212° F and withstand operating pressure up to 362.50 pounds per square inch (psi).
