Positive-displacement flowmeter is constructed of 316 stainless steel or aluminum with other construction materials optional. A variety of end connectors are available, including the standard FNPT. The flowmeter has a temperature range of 850F, is pressure- rated up to 3,000 psi, and has been independently tested at ±0.25% or better on viscous applications. The smooth gear design offers high flow rates on high-viscosity liquids, and provides a high K-factor for better flowmeter resolution at lower flow rates.
