April 29, 2013 – The IC-LPM series of paddlewheel flow meters from Icenta promises accurate flow rate monitoring over the range of 0.5 to 1200 l/min with standard nominal sizes up to 50 mm. The stainless steel construction offers corrosion resistance and a “versatile design” with custom options, and can be adapted to meet varying flow monitoring requirements: additional meter sizes and flow ranges; threaded or flanged connections; a selection of outputs; flow instruments and displays; a choice of three temperature ratings (up to 120C, 230C or 350C) and pressures up to 100 bar (or greater by request). The IC-LPM paddlewheel meter features a freely supported paddlewheel impeller mounted on a bearing and pin assembly. As the fluid passes through the meter body it causes the paddlewheel to rotate at a speed that is proportional, within a small level of uncertainty, to the stream flow velocity over a 10:1 linear flow range. The rotational speed is measured by a magnetic pick-up housed in the probe assembly. Typical applications include chilled water circuit monitoring, oil-based temperature controllers, and chemical & water batching.
