Universal Flow Monitors recently unveiled its P420 Series vortex-shedding flowmeters, which are plastic flow rate transmitters that meet water treatment, chemical and desalination industry requirements. The flowmeters are further highlighted by:

  • Accommodations for low-viscosity, clean or dirty water-like liquids to 450 CP or 50 SUS.
  • Flow rates from 6 to 200 GPM (2.27 to 750 LPM) depending on pipe size.
  • PVC or CPVC wetted parts — CPVC models can transmit liquids with a maximum operating temperature of 180°F compared to a maximum of 140°F with PVC units, while CPVC units can withstand higher maximum operating pressures than PVC units at temperatures of 80 to 180°F.
  • A response time of 0.9 seconds.
  • An accuracy of ± 2 percent of full scale.
  • A10:1 turndown ratio.
  • The flexibility to fit pipe diameters from 3/8 to 2 inches.
  • Inline mounting.
  • A 2-wire 4- to 20-mA flow rate transmitter.
  • No moving parts to clog, jam, stick, bind or coat when processing water, corrosive fluids, brine and low-viscosity fluids.
  • A solvent socket or NPT connection.
  • No seals.
