New Range of Paddlewheel Flow Meters for Liquids

 Posted on 12th March 2013

Icenta has introduced a new range of industrial in-line paddlewheel flow meters that offer cost-effective and accurate monitoring of liquid flow rates over the range of 0.5 to 1200 l/min and are available in 15, 20, 25, 40 and 50 mm nominal sizes; each individual meter has a specific standard flow range with a 10:1 turndown ratio.

The IC-LPM series offers considerable benefits for liquid flow monitoring:
– Cost effective meters for a broad range of liquids
– Good accuracy with low pressure drop
– Robust stainless steel construction
– Versatile, adaptable design with custom options
– High pressure rating up to 100 bar
– High temperature operation up to 350°C
– Selection of flow instruments & displays for compact or remote installation
– Choice of outputs including pulse, 4-20 mA
– ATEX rated option

The IC-LPM series is ideal for a range of liquid flow applications:
The IC-LPM is employed by a UK based temperature control specialist in their range of tool heaters and temperature controllers which ensure that temperatures are accurately managed within applications such as injection moulding, extrusion and die casting.  The standard temperature IC-LPM with mV output is used in water based heaters up to 90°C whilst the high temperature version is used in oil based heaters from 150 to 350°C.

The IC-LPM with battery-powered resettable flow totaliser is used in mobile aircraft deicing systems to monitor use of deicing fluid and allow billing of individual airlines.  The IC-LPM was chosen as a cost effective alternative to a turbine flow meter or insertion paddlewheel meter.

A company that concentrates on fuel storage and handling of diesel and oil is using the standard temperature IC-LPM with a battery powered flow rate indicator for monitoring the flow of diesel to/from storage tanks.  The IC-LPM meter was chosen primarily because of the short lead time compared with supply of an equivalent turbine meter.

A leading provider of engineering solutions in machining technology has integrated the standard temperature IC-LPM with mV output into a CNC milling machine to control flow and optimise usage of machine cutting fluid.
