Mechanical Turbine Meters

Accurate liquid and gas flow measurements are a must-have in many process and water treatment industries due to their impact on desired outcomes. This is where turbine flow meters can help. These meters feature a free-rotating turbine that spins on its axis when gas or liquid flows through it. These meters are preferred over other flow measurement devices because they can measure high flow rates with minimal pressure loss. At Cannon Water Technology, we provide turbine flow meters from SeaMetrics. Our selection also features mechanical turbine meter parts. We assure fast turnaround on all mechanical turbine meters and accessories listed on this page.

How Do Mechanical Turbine Meters Work?

Mechanical turbine meters use fluid energy to rotate the turbine in the flow stream. The rotor has blades that transform the fluid energy into rotational energy. The shaft of the rotor spins on its bearings. This spinning speed entirely depends on the flow. For instance, the rotor will spin faster for high fluid velocities and vice versa.

The rotational movement of the rotor shaft is detected by monitoring the blade movement. This blade movement is monitored using the magnetic detection technique. Each blade features an embedded piece of metal, which generates a pulse when the fluid passes through it. These pulses are sensed by sensors, positioned external to the fluid flow stream. The flow rate of the fluid is calculated by interpreting these pulses; this task is usually performed using transmitters. The transmitters measure the flow of the liquid or gas in reverse and forward directions.

Tips to Choose Mechanical Turbine Meters for Your Application

Although designed for accurate and reliable measurement, it is important to consider a few factors to achieve the desired results. The following points will guide you with the selection.

  • Flow Rate Range: Mechanical turbine flow meters are designed for a specific flow range. So, you must address the maximum and minimum flow rates your application may endure. Ensure that the meter you choose can perform well for these flow rates.
  • Fluid Compatibility: Made from typical materials, most mechanical turbine flow meters have fluid limitations. Hence, you need to be aware of the fluid chemistry as well as its mechanical properties like temperature, viscosity, pressure, and compatibility with your flow meter.
  • Meter Size: Mechanical turbine flow meters are available in various meter sizes. However, not all may be appropriate for your desired flow capacities or the pipe size of your application. If you unsure about the right meter size, you can contact our team to learn more. Always ensure that the meter size is compatible with the pipe size and ensures proper installation.
  • Installation Requirements: WJ Series In-line mechanical turbine flow meters are designed for constrained spaces. It is still recommended to check the available space, desired orientation – vertical or horizontal, and necessary downstream or upstream piping accessories required for the installation.
  • Accuracy Requirements: Most turbine water meters offer accurate results within a specific percentage range. So, before considering this range, you need to identify the level of accuracy needed. Some processes may not need high accuracy, whereas others may require high accuracy. So, ensure the chosen meter meets your accuracy requirements the best.
  • Operating Conditions: As known, turbine flowmeters will be used in water treatment or process facilities, which may impose challenging work conditions brought by factors like ambient temperatures, the presence of corrosive substances, high pressure, and so on. So, ensure, the meter chosen is made of material that can withstand the operating environments.
