Stainless Steel Flow Meters

Stainless steel flow meters are made of stainless steel for the flow sensor. When the flowmeter needs to be measured in a clean environment, a stainless steel flowmeter will be selected. Or, when the measuring environment or measuring medium is corrosive, stainless steel flowmeters will also be selected. Stainless Steel Meters with NPT, Tri-clamp, or Flanged Connections can resist magnetization, corrosion, and stability.

The corrosion resistance of stainless steel flow meters

Stainless steel flow meters are generally used in corrosive environments. According to different measuring environments and measuring mediums, stainless steel such as 304/316/316L can be used.

304 stainless steel
As a widely used steel, 18Cr-8Ni has good corrosion resistance, heat resistance, low-temperature strength and mechanical properties. It has good hot workability such as stamping and bending, and no heat treatment hardening phenomenon (non-magnetic, temperature -196℃ ~800℃).

316 stainless steel

18Cr-12Ni-2.5Mo is added with Mo, so its corrosion resistance, atmospheric corrosion resistance, and high-temperature strength are particularly good, can be used under harsh conditions; excellent work hardening (non-magnetic). Equipment used in seawater, chemical, dye, paper, oxalic acid, fertilizer, and other production equipment; photography, food industry, coastal area facilities, ropes, CD rods, bolts, nuts

316L stainless steel

18Cr-12Ni-2.5Mo low carbon as the low C series of 316 steel, in addition to the same characteristics as 316 steel, it has excellent resistance to grain boundary corrosion. Among the uses of 316 steel, products with special requirements for resistance to grain boundary corrosion.

316L stainless steel is not resistant to hydrochloric acid, because the chloride ion in hydrochloric acid will chemically react with the town in 316, and the reaction changes slowly, but there is still a problem after a long time. If it is convenient to use in the chemical industry, it is not necessary to consider materials such as lining plastic.

Turbine flow meters are velocity flow meters, also called impeller flow meters. Can be used to measure the instantaneous flow and cumulative flow of liquids and gases.

Turbine flowmeters are widely used in flow measurement: petroleum, organic liquids, inorganic liquids, liquefied gas, natural gas, coal gas, and cryogenic fluids. Turbine flowmeter signals can be divided into pulse signals or current signals (4-20mA). It is suitable for use with secondary display, PLC, DCS, and other computer control systems.

Volumetric Flow Meter, as a mechanical flow meter, is also called a Positive displacement flowmeter. It can measure the volume flow of high viscosity and corrosive fluids.

Volumetric Flow Meter is a mechanical instrument used to measure the volume flow of fluids. A volumetric flow meter is an instrument that can measure either directly or indirectly the volume of a substance that is passing through a specific location in a set period of time. The main advantage of these types of flow meters is that they can handle high viscosity and corrosiveness fluid.

What is a fuel flow meter? The fuel flow meter is an instrument that can monitor fuel flow. Industrial Fuel is an important energy source. For example, diesel, marine fuel, gasoline, etc.

Industrial Fuel is an important energy source for production and manufacturing. For example, diesel, marine fuel, gasoline, etc. It is very necessary to accurately measure industrial fuel. Commonly used industrial fuel flow meters, such as turbine flow meters, gear flow meters, mass flow meters, ultrasonic flow meters, etc.

The beer Flow Meter is also called the brewery flow meter. For beverages such as beer and liquor, it is important to accurately measure and control their flow.

Digital Beer Flow Meters for Brewery-Wine flow measurement can be contact or non-contact. The contact type is also called a sanitary flowmeter. The non-contact type is mainly the external clamp type ultrasonic flowmeter. Next, we will analyze in detail.

A propane flow meter refers to a flow meter that can measure gaseous or liquid propane. Propane is also generally referred to as liquefied petroleum gas (LPG)).

Propane is usually gaseous, but it is usually transported after being compressed into a liquid state. After crude oil or natural gas is processed, propane can be obtained from refined oil. Propane is often used as a fuel for engines, grilled food, and household heating systems.

Common sanitary flow meters are sanitary magnetic flow meters and sanitary turbine flow meters. Composed of 304/316 stainless steel. A Sanitary flowmeter with Tri-Clamp fittings is easier to install and disassemble. Suitable for the food hygiene industry.

The sanitary flowmeter uses a new sanitary lining material and lining technology. At the same time, a stainless steel casing and a stainless steel clamp connection are used to facilitate the quick disassembly and cleaning of the sanitary flowmeter. It is not easy to be polluted, and can effectively prevent the accumulation of measuring fluid residue in the measuring tube. It is used in the production process of mineral water, soy sauce, jam, beer, fruit juice, rice wine, milk, and other foods and in the fields of hygiene and chemical industry

Parts of Flow Meter

What is a flow meter?

A flow meter is an instrument used to measure the volume or mass of gas, steam, or liquid. Based on a specific industry, there are many different names for flow meters. Such as flow meters, flow indicators, liquid flow meters, flow sensors, etc.

Most flow meters consist of three parts: primary device, sensor, and transmitter. The job of the sensor is to sense the fluid passing through the main device. The raw signal from the sensor is then converted into usable data by the transmitter. The flow meter may consist of one or more physical devices because these components are combined most of the time.
