Flow meter system

October 1, 2009




Featuring a bearingless design with only 2 moving parts, Flow Technology’s DC-F/IM ingredient measurement positive displacement flow meter system measures high-viscosity fluids in food applications where batch repeatability is desired, and high-pressure and pulsating flow streams are involved. It measures flow rates as low as 0.001gpm. The DC-F sanitary PD flow meter employs 316 stainless steel construction, advanced thermoplastic impellers and a non-intrusive pickoff sensor. The meter offers repeatability of +/-0.05% of rate and up to 1,000:1 turndown; it can measure viscosities up to 1,000,000 cP+. CIP-compatible, the meter can also be opened inline for inspection and physical maintenance. It is available for 1/8- to 2-in. line sizes.
