247able offers Nixon Flowmeters range of Pelton and Industrial Turbine flow meters.
Nixon manufacture liquid and gas flow meters (including water meters) in many sizes available with a choice of end fittings, displays and extras such as ATEX pick off coils.
Turbine flow meters are ideally suited for many applications such as aerospace, cryogenic, fuel flow, oil flow, diesel/petrol flow, most chemicals & gasses. Dedicated hygienic flow meters are also available for pharmaceutical & food applications. High pressure versions up to 1500 bar+ & also High temperature flow meters to 400 C + can be supplied.
Turbine flow meters are a type of velocity flow meter that consists of a multi-bladed rotor mounted at right angles to the fluid flow and suspended in the fluid stream on a free-running bearing. The diameter of the rotor is very slightly less than the inside diameter of the metering chamber, and its speed of rotation is proportional to the volumetric flow rate. Turbine rotation can be detected by solid state devices (reluctance, inductance, capacitive and Hall-effect pick-ups) or by mechanical sensors (gear or magnetic drives).
In the reluctance pick-up, the coil is a permanent magnet and the turbine blades are made of a material attracted to magnets. As each blade passes the coil, a voltage is generated in the coil. Each pulse represents a discrete volume of liquid. The number of pulses per unit volume is called the meter’s K-factor.
