Also known as a radial turbine the highly efficient Pelton Wheel meter has some major advantages. The very large blade area compared with the flow inlet port size produces an exceptionally wide range flowmeter which can measure very low flows. The flow through the inlet to the rotor chamber is accurately directed onto the rotor which rotates at a speed in linear proportion to the flow rate.
A small sensing coil detects the ferrites mounted in the rotor blade tips as they pass. No drag is imposed on the rotor which assists in the measurement of extremely low flows. Sapphire bearings provide a very low friction mechanically-robust bearing with long life characteristics. The Pelton Wheel is mounted across an orifice plate to produce linear measurement over larger flows. Due to the unique design characteristics of the Pelton Wheel there is a linear relationship between the frequency and flow rate over a wide range of up to 65:1.
12.5, 20, 25, 30, 37, 50, 75, 100, 150
Each size pelton wheel flowmeter has its flow rate range controlled by the connection and orifice size. For example, the MM20 has 3/4″ connections and a flow range of 2 to 130 litres per minute. The ring assembly with rotor is the same size irrespective of flow rate and connection size.
