Flow Monitoring System

January 5, 2012

Blue-White Industries’ BW DIGI-METER ® F-2000 Series digital paddlewheel insertion style flowmeters, are well suited for monitoring flow in water and wastewater applications.

The clamp on saddle fitting and insertion sensor is quickly installed on IPS (ASTM-D-1785) pipe sizes from 1-1/2” through 12” and metric (DIN 8062) pipe sizes from 50mm through 315mm. The electronic display and communication enclosure can be mounted directly to the sensor, or remotely mounted to a pipe or panel.

Standard F-2000 models display flow rate and accumulated total flow, and include an NPN open collector output for communication with data loggers, SCADA systems, and other external devices. The electronics can be battery operated using four standard AA size batteries or, AC powered using a 15-24V DC plug-in transformer.
