Flowmeter FAQ’s

How does a liquid turbine flow meter work in a viscous liquid application?

Flowmeters and Viscous liquid applications

Inline turbine flowmeters

Hoffer inline turbine flowmeters may be used for measuring relatively viscous fluids. The maximum viscosity that can be successfully addressed will depend on the available operating pressure and pressure drop across the meter or allowable pressure drop. Ball bearings are usually preferred for viscous applications when a choice is available. It is also usually recommended that the meter be calibrated on a viscosity equal to or similar to the operating viscosity. Finally, signal linearization is often recommended for such applications.

For over forty-five years Hoffer Flow Controls has been designing and manufacturing quality turbine flowmeters and related process instrumentation.
