Low volume variable area flowmeters for liquids and gases

March 2nd, 2014, Published in Articles: EngineerIT


comptest-fig1Kobold Instrumentation has launched the KFR line of acrylic body flowmeters, described as offering the perfect balance between low-cost, accuracy and range availability. Bridging the microflow and large flow ranges, this flowmeter can provide an effective solution to industrial applications, such as gas analysis and water applications. The KFR operates on proven suspended float system, i.e. the installation position is vertical and the flow is from bottom to top. It has a one-piece acrylic body with PVC or metal fittings for durability. Large lettering and extra hash marks make the scale clearly visible and take the guesswork out of reading flow. Further enhancing readability, the low flowmeters offer an inherently stable float design, while the larger flowmeters feature a float stabilisation mechanism. In the larger flow ranges, the stabilisation mechanism allows a smaller installation footprint at a correspondingly lower price. Most units are offered both with or without needle valves.
