LoFlo Series Flowmeter

LoFlo Series Flowmeter

COX Flow Measurement's LoFlo Series turbine flowmeter is a robust axial turbine flowmeter with repeatability of A plus or minus 0.25 percent of reading. Constructed of 316 stainless steel with -6 AN (MS) end-fittings, the meter employs a proprietary Si3N4 ceramic ball bearing system, which makes it suited for the demands of water, hydrocarbon and cryogenic fluid applications. Turbine flowmeters using ceramic bearings benefit from reduced friction, corrosion resistance, increased durability and a wide temperature range - contributing to longer life. Ceramic ball bearings have considerably less friction than journal or sleeve bearings, which, in turn, extends the usable range of the flowmeter and improves the repeatability of the flow measurement. Less friction translates into reduced wear, and thus less calibration drift.

The LoFlo Series meter uses a precision, lightweight 17-4 helical rotor and is calibrated on primary standard equipment. The helical blade profile transfers energy, reducing bearing wear, pressure drop and their associated cost. The compact LoFlo Series flowmeter (2.21 inch face dimension) is not position-sensitive and can be mounted in any piping orientation. It is designed to measure flows as low as 0.006 GPM (0.024 LPM). Typical uses include fuel injection production systems, blending of costly chemical additives, onboard fuel consumption, refrigerants and dye injections.
