DESCRIPTION
SPECIFICATIONS
MODEL VF32 D VERTICAL DOWNFLOW METERS are designed for mounting in
tees with up to 150 PSI working pressure. The bolt-on design permits
use in a wide range of applications with up to 150 psi working pressure.
The mounting flange conforms to ANSI class 125 drilling. It is necessary, upon ordering, to furnish the I.D. dimension of the pipe the meter
is to be mounted on for calibration purposes.
ACCURACY Plus or minus 2% of actual flow within the range
specified for each meter size.
TEMPERATURE 140° F Maximum. Consult factory for special
RANGE construction for higher temperatures.
INSTALLATION is made by bolting the meter assembly to an appropriate cast
iron or fabricated steel tee. These tees usually replace an elbow in existing systems such as on the suction or discharge side of a centrifugal
pump of laterals in irrigation systems. The meter must have a full flow
of liquid for proper accuracy. Fully opened gate valves, fittings or other
obstructions that tend to set up flow disturbances should be a minimum
of five pipe diameters upstream and two pipe diameters downstream
from the meter. An optional kit of adapters with up to 100 feet of cable
is available to locate the indicator-totalizer at remote locations.
MINIMUM FLOWS As shown for each meter size and construction are
required for accurate registration. See flow chart.
NOTE: Minimum flow will be higher when auxiliary
equipment is added.
MAXIMUM FLOWS As shown for each meter size and construction are
rated for continuous operation. See flow chart.
INTERMITTENT As shown for each meter size are rated for 10% to
FLOWS 15% of the total time the meter is operating. Consult
factory for High Velocity construction when intermittent flows are higher than shown on flow chart and/or
when longer operating periods are required.
PRESSURE RANGE Up to 150 PSI maximum working pressure.
PROPELLER is magnetically coupled with electronic sensor through the sealed
separator assembly. This completely eliminates water entering the meter
assembly, and eliminates all moving parts except for the propeller. The
propeller is a conical shaped three bladed propeller, injection molded of
thermoplastic material resistant to normal water corrosion and deformity
due to high flow velocities.
MATERIALS Used in construction are chosen to minimize the corrosive effects of the liquids measured by the meter
assembly.
MAGNETS - permanent ceramic type
PROPELLER BEARING - ceramic sleeve type
PROPELLER SPINDLE - ceramic coated stainless
steel
PROPELLER - injection molded thermoplastic
DROP-PIPE - stainless steel
SEPARATOR - stainless steel
SHAFTS AND BOLTS - stainless steel
METER HEAD - cast iron or fabricated steel, NSF
approved, fusion epoxy coated.
BEARING in propeller is a water lubricated ceramic sleeve and spindle bearing
with a ceramic/stainless steel spindle. Dual ceramic thrust bearings,
standard on all meters, handle flows in both forward and reverse directions. The bearing design promotes extended periods of maintenance
free propeller operation.
DIGITAL INDICATOR-TOTALIZER has a non-volatile EEPROM memory to
store totalizer count (updated hourly while running). Features a large two
line display. Five digit top line indicates flow rate, and eight digit bottom
line provides volumetric flow data. Indicator is available in 22 different
units, including GPM, CFS, MGD. Totalizer is available in 20 different
units, including Gallons, AF, CF. Units of measurement are user-selectable. Battery life is 6 -10 years. Housing is NEMA 4X rated.
Available with optional 4-20mA and/or pulse output.
OPTIONAL Remote mounting kit, with up to 100 feet of cable,
EQUIPMENT and a wide range of controls and instruments for
indicating, totalizing, and recording flow data for
each meter. Special constructions and materials are
available upon request.
ORDERING INFO Must be specified by the customer and includes:
minimum and maximum flow ranges, temperature of
meter environment, indicator scale and units, totalizer
dial units, type of materials and construction, I.D. of
pipe, and optional equipment desired.
