Brooks Instrument Glass Tube Variable Area Flowmeters
January 22, 2021 | By Mario Cywinski
Brooks Instrument adds GT1600 Series glass tube variable area flowmeters to its family of variable area flowmeter products. The flowmeter features 316 stainless steel construction and a polycarbonate shield.
The adjustable, transparent scale allows for offset correction to compensate for process variation. The process connection can be rotated 360 degrees. An alarm option is available for automatic monitoring of critical flow conditions. GT1600 is used for low- and high-flow gas and liquid applications.
GT1600 is available with a variety of connections to fit existing piping arrangements or mount to a panel or wall. It can also work as a drop-in retrofit for the Brooks Instrument GT1000, GT1300 and Full-View 1100 Series of flowmeters. The glass tube and float can be replaced without removing the flowmeter from the piping.
“As a pioneer in rotameter and variable area flowmeter technology, Brooks Instrument is always looking for ways to improve its product offering for industrial users,” said Peter Trivelli, Variable Area Product Manager, Brooks Instrument. “With decades of experience in the process industries, we combined the best features from our previous products with valuable customer insight to develop a rugged flowmeter that’s easy to install and reliable to use.”
