The Series UV In-Line Polysulfone Flowmeter measures
the flow of water, air, and other compatible media at temperatures up to 212°F (100°C) and pressures up to 150 psi (10.34
bar). This flowmeter’s highly corrosion-resistant materials suit
it ideally for use with de-ionized water and ultra-pure applications, including food processing, medical equipment and
reverse osmosis water systems.
6. If using solvent-based glues like PVC cement, in the piping
system, do so with the meter’s body removed until glue has
cured, then purge the system before re-installing. Do not solder brass fittings with the body installed, because the heat
generated to solder the brass fittings will damage the flowmeter.
INSTALLATION
1. Select an indoor (only) location that is free from excess
vibration, within the specified temperature limits, and away
from direct sunlight. (Polysulfone is adversely affected by ultraviolet light.)
cannon” effect on opening, creating pressure that exceeds the
warrantied ratings and will damage the flowmeter.
2. Remove hollow plastic shipping tube from inside flow body.
3. Handle carefully. Hand-tighten aluminum ring.
O-Rings will seal if hand tightened only. Do not overtighten the
adapters and fittings.
4. Install the flowmeter in an exact vertical plane, one that is in
proper alignment with the existing plumbing. Use wall or other
structural supports at the top and bottom of the unit. Do not
allow the instrument to support the weight of pipes or tubing.
5. Use pipe thread sealant tape. Do not use pipe dope compounds, which can craze and crack the polysulfone housing.
Hand tighten system pipe fitting to adaptor fitting. If additional
torque is needed to seal pipe joint, use strap wrench on adaptor fitting. Maximum torque is 22 Foot - Pounds.

tion for the calibration to be valid. In practice, the reading taken
from the flowmeter scale must be corrected back to standard
conditions to be used with the scale units. The correct location to
measure the actual pressure and temperature is at the exit of the
flowmeter, except under vacuum applications where they should
be measured at the flowmeter inlet. The equation to correct for
nonstandard operating conditions is as follows:
OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE
Once installed, the Series UV In-Line Polysulfone
Flowmeter is self-operating and requires no maintenance
other than an occasional cleaning with mild soap and a
bottle brush. For this purpose, the unit has been designed
so that its body can be removed quickly and easily while
leaving all fittings intact.
Q2 = Q1 x
When removing float for cleaning, note the floats “up” position. The float is a precision part and must be reassembled
without adverse treatment, i.e. dropping, denting, and surface abrasion.
P1 x T2
P2 x T1
Where: Q1 = Actual or Observed Flowmeter Reading
Q2 = Standard Flow Corrected for Pressure and
Temperature
P1 = Actual Pressure (14.7 psia + Gage Pressure)
P2 = Standard Pressure (14.7 psia, which is 0 psig)
T1 = Actual Temperature (460 R + Temp °F)
T2 = Standard Temperature (530 R, which is 70°F)
The standard technique for reading a Variable Area Flowmeter is
to locate the highest point of greatest diameter on the float, and
then align that with the theoretical center of the scale graduation.
In the event that the float is not aligned with a grad, an extrapolation of the float location must be made by the operator as to its
location between the two closest grads. The following are some
sample floats shown with reference to the proper location to read
the float.
Example: A flowmeter with a scale of 10-100 SCFH Air. The float
is sitting at the 60 grad on the flowmeter scale. Actual Pressure is
measured at the exit of the meter as 5 psig. Actual Temperature
is measured at the exit of the meter as 85°F.
Q2 = 60.0 x
Variable Area Flowmeters used for gases are typically labeled with
the prefix “S” or “N”, which represents “Standard” for English units
or “Normal” for metric units. Use of this prefix designates that the
flowmeter is calibrated to operate at a specific set of conditions,
and deviation from those standard conditions will require correc-
