The range of GTS Turbine Flow meters are designed to withstand the demands of the most rigorous flow measurement applications of both water and other liquids. With a wide range of turbine flow meters available that are able to measure both small and large quantities of a variety of different liquids, the GTS range of Turbine Flow Meters can be applied to many industries to provide accurate representations of flow.
Q: Where are turbine flow meters used?
They are used to measure liquids with lower viscosity such as fuel and water and for applications requiring highly accurate and precise measurements.
Q: Which type of flow measurement does a turbine flow meter measure?
Volumetric total flow and flow rate measurement.
Q: How do turbine flow meters work?
When the fluid passes through, a rotor is activated and the movement is either electronically or mechanically transmitted outside. The rotor is turned by the fluid force, proportional to the flow rate. A sensor detects the passage of the rotor and supplies pulses, which can be utilised for digital or analogue signal processing. A large number of pulses provides high resolution. As the mass of the turbine is very small the response time is very short.
Q: What are the advantages of a turbine flow meter?
Low manufacturing cost makes it a very price-effective option. A turbine flow meter can move low viscosity fluids (such as water) very easily and have a very low risk of breaking down or other problems. Their simple design makes them reliable, easy to understand and therefore not difficult to keep maintained and working.
