Kobold DPM Rotating Vane Flow Meter

The KOBOLD model DPM Rotating Vane flowmeters are used for  measuring and monitoring liquids. Due to its compact construction the measuring instrument is suitable for use with machines with minimum available space. The system can be used in a wide variety of applications because the output pulses can be analysed in many different ways.

Areas of Application

  • Low viscosity liquids
  • Non-conductive liquids
  • Volume dosing with external electronics
  • Filter aid

Operating Principles

The medium flows through a specially shaped flow housing and causes a vane to rotate. This rotary motion is sensed by optoelectronics in a non-contacting manner, and converted to an asymmetric frequency signal or an analogue signal. A frequency divider with symmetrical output is available as an option. The frequency is proportional to the flow velocity. The vane is sapphire-supported: this ensures a high degree of linearity and long service life.
