Turbine Insertion Flow Meter Product Description

The TX80 Series, Turbine Insertion Flow Meters, are turbine-type insertion flow meters designed for use in pipe sizes 1-1/2" to 8".  High-quality jewel bearings and nickel-bound tungsten carbide shaft are used for maximum life and extreme low friction.  Turbine Insertion Flow Meter bodies are machined from solid rod for maximum precision.  Lowflow performance is superior for Insertion Turbine Flowmeters.  The rotation of the rotor is detected by a non-drag Hall-effect sensor.  The Insertion Turbine Flowmeter's output is a pulse-type square wave, which can be sent long distances (up to 2,000 feet) without a transmitter.  This signal can be connected directly to PLC's, counters, and computer cards.

TX80 Turbine Insertion Flow Meters are ideal for chemical proportioning applications.  For rate and total display, as well as pump pacing, the FT415 or FT420 flow indicator can be mounted directly on the TX80 Series Insertion Turbine Flowmeter.  For a 4-20mA analog output only, the AO55, blind 4-20mA converter, can be mounted directly onto the meter.

The TX80 Series Turbine Insertion Flow Meters require special fittings, since they are not depth-adjustable, installation in the fitting ensures correct depth placement in the pipe.  Fittings are available in PVC, brass, and stainless steel.  Insertion Turbine Flowmeters are available in brass, 316 stainless steel, and polypropylene.
