July 24, 2006
GF Piping Systems has added the Signet 2537 Paddlewheel Flowmeter Series to its broad line of flow monitoring and process control instrumentation. These blind flowmeters combine Signet’s proven paddlewheel sensing technology with a variety of output options in a single unit that reduces overall system costs by eliminating the need for unnecessary components. Output options include 4-20mA, pulse divided, Signet S3L data link and several other output configurations for complete control versatility. Typical applications include water and wastewater treatment, chemical processing, and pump protection. The 2537 Flowmeter Series is offered with six different output versions and a variety of body and rotor pin materials for complete user flexibility. Material choices include polypropylene and PVDF for excellent corrosion resistance and maximum purity with fluids ranging from ultra-pure water to the harshest reagents. The unit can be ordered with digital S3L or 4 to 20 output, dry contact or solid state pulse divider, or dry contact or solid state flow switch.
