Water Specialties Propeller Flowmeter for Well and Booster Station Applications

July 12, 2010

The propeller flowmeter can be used when flow measurement is needed in applications involving municipal ground water production wells and booster stations. A steel flanged-end tube meter with indicator-totalizer, the flowmeter is both user-friendly and highly accurate. It features measurement accuracy of ±2 percent, measures liquid flow from 40 to 60,000 GPM depending on line size and construction. The flowmeter is suitable for service in line sizes from 2 to 48 inches and can be constructed for severe temperatures up to 350 degrees F. The flowmeter features an indicator-totalizer register that instantly delivers data on flow rate indication and totalization of flow volume. It is designed with a 4-inch display with 250-degree dial, six-digit totalizer and test sweep hand. This register can be specified for GPM, CFS, MGD or any standard unit of liquid measurement. An optional 4-20 mA and/or pulse output is available that supports SCADA systems, accommodating advanced data collection and control capabilities. The propeller flowmeters are constructed using advanced techniques and durable, high grade materials. Long-life ceramic dual thrust bearings handle both forward and reverse direction flow. The units can be installed in vertical, horizontal or inclined positions. Meter materials and performance meet or exceed AWWA standard C704-08.
