Pointer Type Oval Gear Flow Meter Applications
LC series oval gear flowmeter is equipped with on-site pointer display and word wheel cumulative counting device, which can directly display the cumulative flow of liquid flowing through the pipeline. For different liquids (acid, alkali, salt, organic solution, etc.), the flowmeter can be made of different materials (cast iron, cast steel, stainless steel, etc.). It is suitable for flow measurement in industrial sectors such as petroleum, chemical industry, transportation, commerce, food, medicine and health.
- The LC-A cast iron oval gear flowmeter is widely used in the measurement of various oil products and non-corrosive liquid media on cast iron.
- The LC-E cast steel oval gear flowmeter is used for the measurement of high pressure and low corrosive media.
- The LC-Q cast iron oval gear flowmeter, whose rotor is made of aluminum, is suitable for the measurement of low-viscosity, low-corrosion (such as gasoline, etc.) media.
- The LC-B stainless steel oval gear flowmeter is widely used in the measurement of liquid media with strong corrosive liquids, such as acids, alkalis, salts and organic compounds.
- The LC-L aluminum alloy oval gear flowmeter is a light super flowmeter, which is widely used in the measurement of low corrosive liquid media, such as water and other liquids.
Structure and working principle of Oval Gear Flow Meter
The oval gear flowmeter is composed of a metering box and a pair of elliptical gears installed in the metering box, and the upper and lower cover plates form a sealed crescent-shaped cavity (due to the rotation of the gear, it is not sealed) as the calculation unit of a displacement .
The flow meter is mainly composed of a housing, a counter, an elliptical gear, and a coupling (magnetic coupling and axial coupling), etc. As shown in the figure.
1.Counter 2. Transmitter
3. Accuracy adjuster (used above DN50)
4. Sealed coupling
5. Front cover 6. Cover plate
7. Oval gear 8. Shell
9. Rear cover
When the measured liquid enters the flowmeter through the pipeline, the pressure difference generated at the inlet and outlet pushes a pair of gears to continuously rotate, and the liquid measured by the crescent-shaped cavity is continuously transported to the outlet. The product of four times the secondary displacement is the total amount of the measured liquid flow.
The elliptical gear generates a torque to make it rotate under the action of the pressure difference △p of the measured medium.
The rotor 1 and the rotor 2 are alternately driven by one to rotate the other. There are two magnets on each rotor as signal generating elements. There is a magnetic signal detecting element at the center of the two axes at the bottom of the cavity. Whenever the magnet turns to the detecting element, the sensor counts as a pulse.
Each pulse corresponds to a certain amount of medium discharge F, F=XXml/p, so the volume flow Qm per unit time can be obtained: Qm=F*H, F is the amount of medium removed by each pulse; H pulse per unit time number.

What is oval gear flow meter?
Oval gear flow meters (also known as displacement flow meters, gear flow meters) are a type of positive displacement flow meters, which are the most accurate type of flow meters.
The oval gear flowmeter uses a mechanical measuring element to continuously divide the fluid into a single known volume part, and measures the total flow volume according to the number of times that the metering chamber is filled and discharged with the volume part of the fluid successively and repeatedly.
The Oval gear flow meter is especially suitable for the flow measurement of heavy oil, polyvinyl alcohol, resin and other high viscosity media.
What are the different types of flow meters?
For different working principle, We offer different types of flow meters, like:
Differential Pressure Flow Meters
