Hoffer Flow Systems used on LCS 19, USS St. Louis

Hoffer Flow Controls is a supplier of turbine flow meters for use on the LCS class of US Navy ships on the reverse osmosis water treatment plant. The LCS ship is a littoral combat ship. Hoffer’s flow systems meter seawater intake on the ship. The flow meters have naval brass housing and flanges which are suitable for use on seawater. The meter internals is made of monel. Above all, these materials provide long life due to corrosive seawater.

The 1” size flow meter will be used on the LCS class ships along with Hoffer’s smart transmitter model CAT3. Furthermore, both the flow meter and the CAT3 transmitter have been tested successfully to meet shock, vibration, and EMI shipboard MIL standards. Therefore, the U.S. Navy choose Hoffer flow reverse osmosis flow metering for the LCS 19, USS St. Louis.
