Axial Turbine Flow Meters

About Axial Turbine Flow Meters

Axial turbine flow meters are designed with wear resistant internal components to provide trouble-free operation and a long service life. Fluid entering the flow meter is first conditioned by the inlet flow straightener which reduces turbulence in the fluid.  The moving fluid causes the rotor to spin at a speed that is proportional to its flow rate.  As the turbine blades on the rotor pass through the magnetic field of the pickup, an electronic pulse is generated.  This pulse train signal can then be used to monitor the fluid’s actual flow rate or the total amount of fluid that has passed through the flow meter.  The number of electronic pulses generated by the meter, per unit volume, is known as its K-Factor.  Each flow meter is calibrated to find its unique K-Factor, which is supplied with the flow meter when purchased.
