6" Flow Meters List

Overview: What is a 6″ Flow Meter?

We usually say 6″ Flow Meter, and some people may default to 6″ Water Flow Meter, or 6″ Water Meter. But this is not rigorous. There are many types of flow meters. They can be 6″ electromagnetic flow meters, 6 ” Turbine flowmeter, 6″ ultrasonic flowmeter, 6″ mass flowmeter, 6″ mass flowmeter, 6″ gear flowmeter, etc. Different types of flowmeters are suitable for different media and different working conditions. So, We need to select an appropriate flow meter based on the actual measurement conditions.

Sino-Inst is a manufacturer of flow meters. Based on our many years of service experience, we have compiled the following content. Hope this helps you choose the right 6″ Flow Meter. Let’s take a look.

How to choose 6” flow meter?

Before choosing a 6″ flow meter, we should first know what kind of medium you are measuring?

The simplest distinction: gas or liquid?

If it is gas: what gas is it? Is it corrosive?
If it’s liquid: What liquid is it? Is it conductive? Is it corrosive? Is the viscosity higher? Whether there are particles, etc.

Why should the distinction be so clear? For example: you want to measure the water flow in a DN150 pipe. For different types of water, we will recommend different flow meters. And their prices may vary a lot.

For example, measure the water in DN150 pipes. There are many types of water, including: pure water, clean water, municipal water, fresh water, fire water, chilled water, RO water, soft water, raw water, rainwater, geothermal water, thermal condensate water, seawater, drinking water, hard water, thermal water Water, sewage, acidic water, drinking water, river water, tap water, industrial sewage, boiler water, chlorinated water, borehole water, distilled water, wastewater containing suspended particles, purified water, mineral water, deionized water, etc.

If the choice is simple, then electromagnetic flowmeter is the first choice.
In addition to some non-conductive RO water, deionized water, DM water, pure water, deionized water, etc. If you want to measure the volume flow of RO water, pure water, and deionized water, we can choose a 6-inch turbine flowmeter or a vortex flowmeter.
Mass flow meters can measure all of the above water, whether it is pure water or dirty water or water containing suspended solids. But the price of Coriolis flow meter is not cheap.

Therefore, in the first step of choosing a 6” flow meter, you must clearly know what the medium is in your pipeline.

Of course. In addition to knowing what the medium is, you also need to know the conditions inside the pipeline, the most basic ones: pressure and temperature. This is all you need to know.

Now that you know what’s going on inside your pipe, you need to understand the different types of 6″ Flow Meters.

6 inch Flow Meters Types

Let’s look at it step by step. First, let’s look at the types of DN150 flow meters that can measure liquids. And their respective measurement advantages and measurement ranges.

6 inch ultrasonic flow meter

Ultrasonic Flow Meters: By measuring the transit time or Doppler shift of ultrasonic signals, these non-invasive flow meters can accurately measure liquid and gas flow rates without contacting the fluid.

The configuration of ultrasonic flowmeter is relatively flexible. You can choose handheld host, wall-mounted host, etc.
Sensors can be selected from external clamp type, plug-in type, pipe type, etc.

It can be configured flexibly as long as it meets your installation needs. You can even add a temperature sensor to become a heat measuring instrument. More about: New Products! Insertion Type Ultrasonic Flow Meter-Heat Meter–Mono/multi-Channel

6 inch Oval gear flow meter

Positive Displacement Flow Meters: These flow meters measure flow rate by capturing a fixed volume of fluid and counting the number of times the volume is filled and emptied. They are ideal for high-viscosity fluids and applications requiring high accuracy.

For media with different viscosity, the measuring range of DN150 Oval Gear Flow Meter is also different. for example:

  1. Viscosity: 0.6—2mPa.s, measuring range: 45—190 m³/h
  2. Viscosity: 2—200mPa.s, measuring range: 34—190 m³/h、
