Titan Introduces Innovative, Robust Insertion Turbine Flowmeter

Titan Enterprise's innovative insertion turbine flowmeters combine proven robust technology with modern materials and design.

The Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF) turbine on insertion turbines rotates freely on a 316 stainless steel shaft and has specially aerofoil shaped blades to extend the dynamic range of the meter. The specially contoured housing further improves the meters linearity particularly at lower fluid velocities. Each meter contains two sensors, one self-powered (for battery operated equipment) and the other an open collector transistor. A reed switch may be specified for hazardous areas were simple apparatus is acceptable. The body is manufactured from AISI316 stainless steel and as standard is supplied with three metres of five core screened instrument cable.

These insertion turbines provide a cost effective and simple means to measure the flow of a wide range of low viscosity liquids. Installation is quick and inexpensive in pipes from 40 mm diameter up to 900 mm diameter. Due to the relatively small disturbance a Titan insertion flow meter head introduces to a pipe, pressure losses for this type of flowmeter are very low delivering significant energy savings by reducing pumping costs. For rate and total applications - Titan offers self-powered instruments (MetraCount, MetraSmart) that can be mounted directly onto the insertion turbine meter to enable stand-alone measurement.
