September 17, 2008

Universal Flow Monitors, Inc. introduces four new sizes of stainless steel CoolPoint™ vortex shedding flowmeters for corrosion resistance in processing cooling water, water/glycol coolant or low-viscosity fluids.CoolPoint™ flowmeters of 316 SS construction are now offered in 3/4 inch, 1 inch, 1 1/2 inch and 2 inch pipe sizes for measuring and monitoring higher flows of corrosive fluids and water with chemicals added. The vortex shedding flowmeters with 316 SS bodies also continue to be available in 1/4 inch and 1/2 inch pipe sizes. Maximum 4-20 mA transmitter flow rates for the new stainless steel CoolPoint™ pipe sizes are: 3/4 inch, 25 gallons per minute; 1 inch, 50 GPM; 1 1/2 inch, 100 GPM (380 LPM); and 2 inch, 200 GPM (750 LPM). All four of the new, larger sized CoolPoint™ 316 SS flowmeters can be equipped with a temperature transmitter for flow applications involving heat removal. In addition to measuring flow rate, meters with the transmitter have the added capability of monitoring temperature readings and transmitting them to a process controller.
