PVC-body turbine flow meter | WTP Series Turbine Flow Meters
- In-line, individually-calibrated turbine meter maximizes accuracy.
- The turbine rotor is the only moving part, optimizing low-flow performance.
- Solid-state pickup.
- The electronic register can be meter-mounted or remote.
- Available with blind pulse or 4-20 mA output.
- Materials are chemical-resistant.
- Can be ordered with stub ends (standard) or flanges (optional).
This unique system of 2″ to 8″ turbine meters uses just one moving part, a precision helical rotor. Rotation of the rotor is electronically detected and processed. The high-quality jewel bearings and polished zirconia ceramic shafts minimize friction while providing long wear life in non-lubricating fluids. The entire rotor assembly can be easily removed for field service without removing the meter from the pipe.
WTP FLOW METER bodies are fabricated from Schedule 80 PVC fittings, WTC flowmeter bodies from carbon steel tubing, and WTS flow meters bodies (available as special order) from stainless steel tubing. The turbine insert flowmeters on WTC and WTS flow meters is machined from a stainless steel casting.
The WTP turbine insert flow meters are machined from a solid piece of PVC (polypro in 2” size). Turbine rotors on all models are Kynar (PVDF).
WT flow meters can be ordered with various output options. The basic model (100) comes with pulse output only. An electronic display (Seametrics FT420) is mounted on the 101 models to display flow rate and total (resettable or non-resettable) and provide a programmable pulse or 4-20 mA output. Other electronics options include a blind 4-20 mA transmitter (AO55) on the 102 model and a battery-powered (FT415) rate/totalizer plus pulse output for applications that lack power (104 models).
All of these controls/displays can be mounted on the flow meter or remotely mounted on a wall or panel up to 2,000 feet away. WT-Series flow meters are compatible for use with most other remote-mount Seametrics displays and controls as well.
