Introduction
1.
Unpacking
McMillan suitably packages all sensors to prevent damage during shipping.
If external damage is noted upon receipt of the package, please contact the
shipping company immediately. McMillan Company is not liable for
damage to the device once it has left the manufacturing premises.
Open the package from the top, taking care not to cut too deeply into the
package. Remove all the documentation and contents. Take care to remove
all the items and check them against the packing slip. The products should
also be checked for any concealed shipping damage. If any shortages or
damage is noted, please contact the shipping company and/or McMillan
Company to resolve the problem.

CAUTION: Take care not to drop your sensor or subject it to
sudden impact. Read the installation section of this manual before
providing power or tubing connections to the unit. Any damage
caused by improper installation or careless handling will not be
repaired under warranty (see limited warranty on page 39 for
more details).

Product Overview and Principle of Operation
McMillan Micro Turbine Wheel FLO-SENSORS for liquids are capable of
measuring flows as low as 13-100 ml/min or as high as 1.0-10.0 l/min.
Highly repeatable results are achieved using a patented Pelton Turbine
®
101-M003, pg. 3 of 45
Wheel flow sensor design. This proven design minimizes zero drift while
maintaining fast response and linear outputs with virtually no maintenance.
McMillan’s patented technology measures flow using a miniature turbine
wheel similar in size to a U.S. dime (16 mm diameter, 0.75 mm thick). The
micro-turbine wheel is supported on a very small sapphire shaft that is held
in position by two sapphire bearings. The micro-turbine assembly is so light
that it virtually floats in the liquid. This relieves force on the bearings and
almost eliminates wear.
As flow passes through the FLO-SENSOR , a precision machined nozzle
directs the fluid onto the very small teeth of the micro-turbine wheel. This
causes the wheel to spin at a speed proportional to the flow rate.
®
The micro-turbine wheel has alternating white and black sections evenly
spaced on one side of the wheel. An infrared light beam is directed onto the
wheel. As the wheel rotates the infrared beam is reflected off each white
section. The reflected beam is detected by a phototransistor that converts the
reflections into electrical pulses. As the wheel spins faster the pulse rate
increases. Processing circuitry provides analog and/or pulse output that are
linearly proportional to the flow rate
When the wheel stops (under zero flow conditions), no pulses are
generated. Consequently, zero drift is not possible and zero adjustments are
never required.
Every unit is supplied with a calibration certificate detailing the results
obtained during calibration. Units are calibrated using deionized water as
the reference media. Flowing liquids with different specific gravities or
viscosities may effect the calibration.
101-M003, pg. 4 of 45
3.
Non-Standard Products (Z Suffixes)
Please note that the installation instructions, operating instructions, and
specifications included within this manual apply to standard production
models only. If your FLO-SENSOR or FLO-METER has a “Z” suffix (e.g.
101-Z0123) then your unit is non-standard. Contact the factory to check if
the installation, operation, or specifications of your sensor are different than
detailed in this manual.
®
B.
®
Installation
CAUTION: Do not flow any gas through a liquid FLOSENSOR or FLO-METER . This may damage the microturbine assembly and void the warranty. Do not
exceed the pressure, temperature or power operating
ranges detailed in the SPECIFICATIONS section of this
manual. McMillan Company shall not be liable for any
damage or injury caused by incorrect operation of
their products.
®
1.
®
General Considerations
It is recommended that a safety shut-off valve be installed upstream of
(before) the sensor.
All wetted parts should be checked for compatibility with the liquid to be
used. If there are any incompatibilities e.g. highly corrosive liquid, then the
unit may be damaged or fail prematurely. Such damage will not be
repaired under warranty.
Units should be installed in a clean, dry environment with an ambient
temperature that is as stable as possible. Avoid areas with strong magnetic
fields, strong air flows or excessive vibration.
If the liquid to be used may contain particles larger than 25 microns then a
filter (25 microns or less) should be installed upstream of (before) the unit.
The required differential press (or pressure drop across the unit) decreases
exponentially with decreases in flow rate.

Range 6
All Other Ranges
To calculate the pressure drop at a certain flow rate use the formula
PD = (YourFlow / MaxFlow)2 x PDmax
PD = Pressure drop at YourFlow.
YourFLow = flow rate (ml/min or l/min)
MaxFlow = 100% rated flow for the sensor (in same units as YourFlow)
PD = Pressure drop at 100% rated flow (see chart above)
max
If the pressure available for the flow sensor is BELOW the pressure drop at
the required flow then flow through the unit will not be possible.
For example: You have a sensor with a 50-500ml/min flow range (Range
5) and want to know the pressure drop (or minimum differential pressure
required) at 300ml/min. According to the chart above, the pressure drop at
100% of flow is approx 10psi. Using the formula above:
PD = (300 / 500)2 x 10 = 3.6 psid
Therefore, at 300ml/min the minimum required differential pressure for this
unit is 3.6 psid. This means that if the available pressure is below 3.6psid
then flow through the unit may not be possible.
Pressure drop through a system is cumulative. If the total pressure drop
across all the components in a system exceeds the minimum pressure
available then flow will not be possible.
101-M003, pg. 6 of 45
For example: A system has a pressure of 30-40psi. There are several
components and the sum of their pressure drops at the required flow rate is
32psid. If the system is operating at 30psi flow would not be possible as the
total of the pressure drops would be greater than the pressure available.
The system will only operate if the system pressure is above 32psi.
If there is any possibility that there may be bubbles or entrapped gas in the
system then the outlet tubing should be elevated above the inlet port. This
will enable any gas that may become entrapped in the unit to escape (see
section C2 for details of how to remove entrapped air or gas).
2.
Mounting the FLO-SENSOR or FLO-METER .
®
®
McMillan FLO-SENSORS and FLO-METERS have no particular installation
requirements so may be mounted in any convenient position.
®
®
It is recommended that units be fixed to a suitable substrate with #4 screws
using the two mounting holes provided.

Tubing Connections
CAUTION: DO NOT FLOW ANY GAS THROUGH A
LIQUID FLO-SENSOR OR FLO-METER . THIS WILL
DAMAGE THE MICRO-TURBINE ASSEMBLY AND VOID
THE WARRANTY.
®
®
All tubing must be clean and without crimps, burrs or scratches.
Only use the fittings factory installed on the unit. If the fittings are removed
the calibration of the unit may be effected and leaking may occur. If
different fittings are required please contact the McMillan Company Service
Department for assistance.
When connecting the sensor to the tubing a wrench should be used to stop
the fitting rotating in the sensor body. Take care not to over tighten the
fittings or leaking may occur.
101-M003, pg. 8 of 45
Connecting and tightening the Fittings
(S Series shown, other models similar)
CAUTION: DO NOT over tighten the fittings into the
FLO-SENSOR or FLO-METER body. Excessive force
may damage the sensor body and will NOT be
repaired under warranty.
®
®
The flow direction for the FLO-SENSOR or FLO-METER is clearly marked
on the label. Do not reverse the flow direction or the unit will not function.

Close Up of Label Showing Flow Directions
(Model 101 shown, other models similar)
101-M003, pg. 9 of 45
For the best results precautions should be taken to minimize the amount of
turbulence in the flow stream. Avoid valves, fittings, curves in the tube,
changes in the internal diameter or any other restrictions close to the inlet of
the sensor. The tubing ID should be as large as possible and preferably not
smaller than the ID of the fittings installed on the sensor.
For 0.2-2.0 L/min (Range 7) units a 10 cm straight length of tube before the
sensor is recommended. For higher flow range units (0.5-5.0 L/min and 1.010.0 L/min), a 20 cm straight length of tubing before the sensor is
recommended. If this is not possible it is recommended that straight lengths
between all connections on the inlet side of the sensor are as long as
possible and 90 degree fittings (with a large enough ID) are used instead of
curves in the tubing.
5.
Electrical Connections
CAUTION: Incorrect wiring may cause severe damage to the
unit. Applying an AC voltage (115VAC or 230VAC) directly to
the unit will cause damage. Read the following instructions
carefully before making any connections.
a)
Overview
McMillan FLO-SENSORS provide a 0-5VDC, or 4-20mA, or 0-5VDC and
pulse output (T option) proportional to the flow rate. This output may be
connected to a display, data acquisition system or voltmeter / current meter.
®
The Model S-111, S-112 and S-114 FLO-METERS feature an integral
display that provides a local flow reading. These units also have a 0-5VDC
analog output available. If required, this may be connected to another
display, data acquisition system or voltmeter.
®
A stable D.C. power supply is required to operate the unit. The voltage and
current requirements depend on the configuration of the unit. Full details
may be found in the Specification section of this manual.
Connecting wires should be as short as possible to avoid voltage drops.
Twisted 2 pair conductor cable should be used if the length of the power
wires is to be longer than 1 meter.
Units are supplied with an integral 4 pin connector. Connections to the unit
are made using a mating cable assembly or power adapter package as
detailed in the following sections (parts 5.b to 5.h of this manual). A
connector pin and wire color cross reference may also be found in
Appendix I (Page 30) of this manual.

C.
Operation
CAUTION: USE WITH LIQUIDS ONLY. FLOWING GAS
OR AIR THROUGH YOUR FLO-SENSOR OR FLO-METER
WILL DAMAGE THE MICRO-TURBINE ASSEMBLY. THIS
TYPE OF DAMAGE WILL NOT BE REPAIRED UNDER
WARRANTY.
®
1.
®
Start Up
Before applying power to the unit check all tubing and electrical
connections. Once correct installation is verified switch on the power.
2.
Entrapped Air or Gas
There may be a lot of air or gas trapped in your FLO-SENSOR or FLOMETER after installation. This will usually escape the unit when flow (within
the range of the unit) is first started.
®
®
CAUTION: The system should be primed with liquid and flow
started gradually. This will prevent trapped air or gas from being
forced through the sensor at a high velocity that may damage the
sensor.
101-M003, pg. 20 of 45
If gas remains entrapped in the unit it may be necessary to elevate the outlet
tubing above the inlet of the FLO-METER or FLO-SENSOR . This should
enable the trapped gas to escape the unit. The FLO-SENSOR or FLOMETER may be returned to it’s original position once all the gas has
escaped.
®
®
®
®
If elevating the outlet tubing does not work, block or pinch the outlet tube
whilst there is flow in the system. After approximately 5 seconds, release the
restriction to allow normal flow. Doing this will build up pressure in the flow
path that when released will help remove the entrapped gas. Repeat this
until the entrapped gas is removed form the unit.
3.
Flow Readings
McMillan FLO-SENSORS provide a 0-5VDC, or 4-20mA, or 0-5VDC and
pulse output (T option) proportional to the flow rate. The type of output
signal is detailed in the part number reference and on the calibration
certificate.
®
The Model S-111, S-112 and S-114 FLO-METERS feature an integral
display that provides a local flow reading and a 0-5VDC analog output.
®
Each FLO-SENSOR or FLO-METER is factory calibrated for a specific flow
range. The flow range is shown on the unit’s label and calibration
certificate. Units are calibrated using deionized water as the reference
media.
®
a)
®
0-5VDC Analog Outputs
By monitoring the voltage output signal it is possible to determine the flow
rate of the liquid. Units are configured so that an output signal of 5.0VDC is
provided when the maximum flow (i.e. Full Scale flow) is passing through
the unit. The output signal is linear and scaleable enabling calculation of
flow rates within the sensor’s range. For example:
For a flow range of 50-500ml/min (Range 5) :
At 500ml/min the output signal would be 5VDC
If the output signal were 3.5VDC then the flow rate would be:
500 ÷ 5 × 3.5 = 350ml/min
If the maximum flow rate is exceeded non-linear and inaccurate readings
will result.
101-M003, pg. 21 of 45
b)
Pulse Outputs
By monitoring the Pulse output frequency it is possible to determine the flow
rate of the liquid. The pulse frequency for maximum flow through the unit
(i.e. full scale flow) is detailed on the calibration certificate. This differs from
unit to unit. This output is approximately linear and scaleable within the
sensor’s range. For example:
For a flow range of 1.0-10.0l/min (Range 9) :
The calibration certificate gives the following:
At 10.0l/min the pulse output signal is 312Hz
At 5.0l/min the pulse output signal is 150Hz
At 2.0l/min the pulse output signal is 58Hz
If the output signal were 120Hz then the flow rate would be:
5.0 ÷ 150 × 120 = 4.0 l/min (using the closest calibration point)
c)
4-20mA Outputs
By monitoring the current output signal it is possible to determine the flow
rate of the liquid. Units are configured so that an output signal of 20mA is
provided when the maximum flow (i.e. Full Scale flow) is passing through
the unit. The output signal is 4mA when there is zero flow through the unit.
The output signal is linear and scaleable enabling calculation of flow rates
within the sensor’s range. For example:
For a flow range of 20-200ml/min (Range 4) :
At 200ml/min the output signal would be 20mA
If the output signal were 9mA then the flow rate would be:
200 ÷ (20-4) × 9 = 112.5ml/min
d)
Units With an Integral Display
The Model S-111, S-112 and S-114 feature an integral 3 ˝ digit LCD
display. This is configured to read in ml/min for flow ranges 2-5 and in
l/min for flow ranges 6-9. The display will only operate if power is applied
to the unit.
101-M003, pg. 22 of 45
Flow readings may be taken directly from the display or by monitoring the
0-5VDC analog output provided by using a cable assembly or power
adapter package (see above).

Operating at Flow Rates Outside the Calibrated Flow Range
CAUTION: If the flow through the unit exceeds 120%
of the maximum rated (full scale) flow the unit may be
damaged. This type of damage will not be repaired
under warranty.
Flow measurement is only accurate within the calibrated flow range for the
unit. This is detailed on the calibration certificate. The unit will still operate, to
some degree, outside this flow range.
Results obtained when operating outside the specified range of the unit are
not accurate but may be considered repeatable.
a) Flows Above the Maximum Rated Flow.
If the flow rate is above the maximum rated (or full scale) flow, the unit will
still operate and provide an output signal proportional to the flow rate.
Flows must not exceed 120% of the maximum rated flow or the unit may be
damaged.
101-M003, pg. 23 of 45
b) Flows Below the Minimum Rated Flow.
Signal outputs may be obtained at flow rates below the minimum specified
for your unit. The amount of flow that may be measured below the minimum
specified varies from unit to unit.
5.
Zero Adjustments
It is impossible for there to be any zero drift so zero adjustments are never
required.
6.
Recalibration
The calibration of the FLO-SENSOR or FLO-METER may be easily verified
using empirical methods.
®
®
It should be noted that the use of empirical methods outside a certified
calibration laboratory is subject to inaccuracy and error. These methods
should only be used to gain an indication of a sensor’s performance. Please
contact the McMillan Service Department if accurate, certified recalibration
is required.
A typical empirical calibration check may be carried out as follows:
Carefully adjust the flow rate so that the maximum output signal is obtained.
With the flow rate constant, liquid flowing through the unit should be
gathered in a container over a timed interval. The total volume flowed over
the timed period should then be measured using a measuring cylinder. The
actual flow rate (in the same units as the flow sensor calibration certificate)
may then be calculated. The actual maximum flow rate should then be
compared to the specified maximum flow rate to determine the error in
calibration. For example:
For a flow range of 20-200ml/min (Range 4) with a 0-5VDC
output:
With a constant flow and constant 5VDC output the actual volume
measured over 30 seconds was 102ml.
Therefore the actual flow rate is:
(102 / 30) x 60 = 204ml/min
The error is therefore 204 – 200 = 4ml/min or 2%
101-M003, pg. 24 of 45
A second empirical check should be made at a flow rate below the
maximum for the unit e.g. at 50% of full scale. The calculated percentage
error at this flow should then be compared to the error at maximum flow. If
there is a big difference in the percentage errors then the flow signal is no
longer linear and the unit may be damaged (consult the McMillan Service
Department).
Once it has been determined that the linearity is still acceptable and the
error in flow reading at maximum flow has been calculated, there are 3
options:
i.) Minor adjustments to actual calibration of the FLO-SENSOR or FLOMETER may be made by turning the gain potentiometer on the side of the
unit. For example:
®
®
For a unit with a flow range of 13-100ml/min (Range 3) and a
0-5VDC output:
With a constant flow and constant 5VDC output the actual volume
measured over 60 seconds was 103ml.
The correct voltage output for a flow of 103 ml/min is:
(5/100) x 103 = 5.15 V
With the flow at a constant 103 ml/min the gain potentiometer
should be carefully adjusted so that a voltage output reading of
5.15 V is obtained.
If the unit cannot be suitably adjusted please contact the McMillan Service
Department. Pulse outputs are not adjustable.
Adjusting the Gain Potentiometer Using a Flat Head Screwdriver
(Model 101 shown, other models similar)
101-M003, pg. 25 of 45
ii.) Adjust the scaling endpoints in the display or data acquisition system. For
example:
For a flow range of 50-500ml/min (Range 5) with a 0-5VDC
output:
With a constant flow and constant 5VDC output the actual volume
measured
over 60 seconds was 405ml.
Therefore the actual flow rate is:
(405 / 60) x 60 = 405ml/min
The display or data acquisition system may now to configured as
follows:
0 VDC = Zero flow
5VDC = 405ml/min
iii.) Apply the error factor to each flow reading taken. For example:
For a flow range of 0.2-2.0l/min (Range 7) connected to a display:
With a constant flow rate of 2.0 l/min on the display, the actual
volume measured over 20 seconds was 0.7l
Therefore the actual flow rate is:
(0.7 / 20) x 60 = 2.1 l/min
The error is therefore 2.1 – 2.0 = 0.1 l/min or 5%
If the display shows an uncorrected flow rate of 1.4 l/min then :
Corrected flow rate = Uncorrected flow rate + error
Corrected flow rate = 1.4 + 5% = 1.47 l/min
101-M003, pg. 26 of 45
7.
Calibrating FLO-SENSORS or FLO-METERS for Different Liquids
®
®
McMillan FLO-SENSORS or FLO-METERS will operate with most
translucent liquids subject to compatibility of the wetted parts. Best results
are obtained with low viscosity (less than 10 centistokes) liquids. For
information regarding higher viscosity liquids, contact the McMillan Service
Department.
®
®
Units are calibrated with deionized water as the reference media. Using
other liquids will effect the calibration. The amount of calibration error will
depend on the characteristics of the liquid being flowed.
The error in flow reading (or calibration) should be calculated and utilized
as detailed in section 6 above.
D.
Maintenance and Product Care
1.
General
CAUTION: Do not disassemble your FLO-METER or
FLO-SENSOR for any reason. If the unit appears to be
malfunctioning please contact the McMillan Service
Department.
®
®
McMillan FLO-SENSORS and FLO-METERS require no periodic
maintenance if used within the recommended specifications.
®
®
The next recommended recalibration date is stated on the calibration
certificate supplied with the unit. Please contact the McMillan Service
Department for further information.
Inlet filters should be periodically checked and cleaned / replaced as
necessary.
Regularly check all electrical and process connections for damage or
deterioration.
If the sensor is to be stored, keep both the inlet and outlet ports sealed.
Do not store a FLO-METER or FLO-SENSOR with any chemical other than
water (or air) inside it over an extended period of time. Prolonged exposure
to chemicals other than water may lead to precipitation or corrosion.
®
®
101-M003, pg. 27 of 45
2.
Cleaning and Flushing
If there is a build up of deposits or residues from the measured chemicals it
may be necessary to clean or flush the unit. This should be done by flowing
clean, particle free water through the unit at a flow rate, pressure and
temperature within the specifications of the unit. If necessary, flow may be
reversed to assist flushing.
Under no circumstances should gas or air be flowed through the unit. This
will cause severe damage.
3.
Returning Units for Repair or Recalibration
To return a unit for repair or recalibration please contact the McMillan
Service Department or follow the procedure detailed on the McMillan web
site. A Return to Manufacturer Authorization (RMA) number will then be
issued to enable the unit to be returned. Please note that no returns will be
accepted unless the RMA number is clearly indicated on the outside of all
packages.
Once the unit has been received it will be evaluated and the cost of any
repairs / recalibration determined. Once agreement has been received to
pay for all the necessary work the unit will be processed and returned. No
charges will be made for Warranty Repairs (see section J).

Troubleshooting Guide
Symptom
Unit Leaks.
No output signal or
flow indication.
Flow reading
accuracy is outside
the specification.
Possible Cause
Fittings not tight enough.
Method of Correction
Tighten fittings (see section
B4).
Sensor assembly cracked.
Unit must be returned for
repair (see Section J).
No power or low power.
Apply correct power.
No flow passing through
unit.
Display or output should
read zero if there is no flow.
Increase the flow rate until a
reading is obtained. (Do not
exceed the specified
maximum flow!).
Output shorted or
overloaded.
Check electrical connections
(see section B5).
Improper connection.
Check electrical connections
(see section B5) and ensure
connector is correctly
plugged in.
Moisture on internal
electronics.
Allow unit to dry out in a
dry environment.
Output circuitry damaged.
Unit must be returned for
repair (see Section J).
Liquid not translucent
enough.
Contact the McMillan
Service Department for
assistance.
Attempting to measure flows
below the specified
minimum for the unit.
Use higher flow rates.
Liquid has a different
viscosity and / or specific
gravity than water at 20°C.
Calculate the flow reading
error / offset as explained
in section C6.
Entrapped air or gas.
Remove the entrapped air
(see section C2).
Mechanical sensor
assembly damaged.
Unit must be returned for
repair (see Section J).

Symptom
Flow indication is not
linear and output too
low at lower flows
Flow indication
“bounces” or
fluctuates
Flow indication is
fixed at one value
Possible Cause
Attempting to measure flows
below the specified
minimum for the unit
Method of Correction
Use higher flow rates.
Liquid is too viscous
Best results are obtained
with liquids that have a
viscosity of 10cS or less.
Contact the McMillan
Service Department for
further information.
Entrapped air or gas
Remove entrapped air (see
section C2).
Mechanical sensor
assembly damaged
Unit must be returned for
repair (see Section J).
Flow is actually fluctuating
Correct flow source to
obtain steady flow.
Not using the fittings
supplied by the
manuafacturer
Use the supplied fittings.
Entrapped air or gas
Remove entrapped air (see
section C2).
Turbulence in tubing or
sensor
Straighten the inlet tubing or
lengthen it to at least 6”
(150mm).
Fluctuating input power
Correct the power source or
change to a regulated
supply.
Mechanical sensor
assembly damaged
Unit must be returned for
repair (see Section J).
The maximum rated flow for
the unit is being exceeded.
Reduce the flow.
Output circuits may be
damaged
Unit must be returned for
repair (see Section J).
