Vortex Shedding Flow Meters

Vortex Shedding Flow Meters

Parker Fluid Control Division's new line of Vortex Shedding Flow Meters monitor the flow of cooling fluid for resistance welders, slurry pump seal water, machine coolant and steam boiler feed water. Parker Flow Meters can be used for cooling water to furnace walls and inductors in steel mills; cooling boiler feed pumps and turbine bearing cooling in power generation plants; as well as for rubber, mining, municipal wastewater treatment and water addition in chemical and process applications.

Parker Flow Meters feature no moving parts to clog or wear out, providing life-long reliability and requiring little maintenance. The meters operate with NPT ports ranging from .25 - 2 inch in size and can handle flows from 4 - 200 GPM, with occasional over-ranging up to 125 percent of capacity without damaging the meter. Parker Flow Meters feature 4-20 mA flow rate transmitters and can withstand working pressures from 10 - 300 PSIG. They are designed to operate efficiently at fluid and ambient temperatures from 35 - 150F. CSA- and CE-certified, the flow meters are built with a stainless steel or bronze body with PVDF sensors and FKM seals. The company supplies standard units equipped with a solid state relay, which customers can set to a pulse output or a flow alarm. User-friendly three-digit LED displays make the meters easy to use, and can customize the product by selecting between GPM or LPM units of measurement.

The flow meters require 10 - 30V dc @ 80 mA input power, attached via pin connectors and are compatible with female NPT pipe connections. Parker Fluid Control Division offers a two-year warranty on this product line. These rugged inline flow meters are solutions for applications utilizing water, water/glycol coolant and other low-viscosity fluids.
