TX-80 Insert Turbine Flow Meter | General Information
Seametrics insert flow meters The TX80-Series are insertion turbine meters designed for use in 1-1/2″ to 8″ pipe. High-quality jewel bearings and precision shafts ensure long life and low friction. Available in 316 stainless steel, brass and PVC, sensor bodies are machined from the solid rod for maximum low-flow performance. The TX80-Series use special fittings that ensure ease of installation and correct depth setting in the pipe.
The rotation of the turbine is detected by a non-drag Hall-effect sensor. The 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 Seametrics controls and displays as well as PLC’s, counters, and computer cards.
Seametrics TX80 meters are ideal for chemical proportioning applications. If no display is required, a simple divider such as the PD10 provides adjustable pump pacing. For rate and total display, as well as pump pacing, the FT420 flow indicator can be mounted directly on the TX80-Series, or remotely on a wall or panel. The FT415 offers a battery-operated rate/totalizer where power is not available.
