Insertion Paddle Wheel Flow Meter

FLOMEC’s DP (Dual Pulse) Insertion Paddle Wheel Flow Meter products are innovative.  They combine proven technology with modern engineering materials and provide a cost effective and simple means of measuring the flow of water and a wide variety of liquids.

Paddle Wheel Flow Meter options:

FLOMEC’s Insertion Paddle Wheel flow meters are available in two sizes, providing a cost effective solution for flow measurement across a wide range of piping sizes.

The smaller DP490 is suitable for pipe diameters from 1.5 inch through 35 inches, and the DP525 is suitable for pipe diameters from 2 inch through 100 inch.  Their Stainless Steel construction, with rotors in PVDF or PEEK, make them the perfect solution for water, fuels and a range of chemicals.  These meters are capable of reading velocities from 0.3 to 10m/s and are suitable for low viscosity fluids.

Due to the wide range of applications, these meters provide the perfect, cost-effective solution for standardising flow metering across your plant.

Insertion Paddle Wheel Flow Meters are easily installed with the metering head inserted 1/8th into the pipe.  This results in very little pressure drop.

Standard applications do not require external power when used with FLOMEC rate totalisers.

Paddle wheel meters can be installed in non-standard applications such as hazardous environments, high temperature fluids or liquids with ferrous impurities.    Externally powered and remote-mounted totalisers are available, as well as bi-directional flow measurement and Quadrature Pulse output.

These flow meters are ideal for applications in HVAC, hot & chilled water, fire systems, water distribution management, water treatment, boiler feed water & hydrant flow testing.
