What is Metal Tube Flow Meter?
LZ series metal tube flow meter, also known as metal rotor flowmeter. Metal tube flow meter consists of a measuring tube and side indicator, the field indicator can also be retrofitted with an electric device, suitable for liquid gas, and steam measurement. Stable flow measurement is also possible at high pressures and extreme temperatures.
Metal tube flow meter units are available in a variety of tube sizes and configurations. Metal tube units are available from DN 15 to DN 200.
Metal Tube Flow Meter Features
- All metal construction, strong and stable.

Metal Tube Flow Meter Benefits
- Metal tube rotameter gives full play to its advantages in small diameter, low flow rate of the medium flow measurement.
- Simple structure, reliable operation, wide range of applications, accurate measurement, easy installation. The product is widely used in chemical, food, pharmaceutical and other industries.
- Rotameter flowmeter has ordinary type and anti-corrosion type. The above two types are further divided into field indication type and electric remote transmission type.
- If the measured medium is easy to crystallize or freeze. Can also use metal rotor flowmeter with steam tracing.
- If the measured medium contains magnetic objects. Can be installed at the entrance of the flowmeter magnetic filter. Its material is the same as the corresponding flowmeter material.
- The overall structure of the metal tube rotameter is made of metal. So it is more sturdy, not easy to be damaged by external factors. It can withstand high temperature of 400℃, and has the characteristics of explosion-proof and anti-corrosion.
- Used for gas and liquid measurement in various industries, the measuring part can be made of different materials to adapt to different media conditions.

Metal Tube Flow Meter-Variable Area Flow Meters Principle
A Metal Tube Flow Meter is a variable area flow meter. It consists of measuring tube, float, indicator, process connection, and so on.
Rotameter flow meter working principle
When the measured fluid passes through the annulus formed by the cone and floats from the bottom to top.
The differential pressure produced at the upper and lower ends of the float forms the force for the float to rise.
When the rise of the float is greater than the weight of the float immersed in the fluid. The float rises.
The annulus area increases accordingly. The fluid velocity in the annulus drops immediately.
The differential pressure at the upper and lower ends of the float is reduced. The lifting force acting on the float also decreases.
Until the rising force equals the weight of the float immersed in the fluid, the float will stabilize at a certain height.
The height of the float in the tapered tube and the flow rate through it correspond to each other.
