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 will be used for metering seawater intake on the ship. The flow meters are constructed of a naval brass housing and flanges which are suitable for use on seawater. The meter internals are made of monel. 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. Both the flow meter and the CAT3 transmitter have been tested successfully to meet shock, vibration and EMI shipboard MIL-standards. The Hoffer flow systems are currently installed on the LCS 19, USS St. Louis. This ship is a Freedom-class LCS ship and was built by Fincantieri Marrinette Marine in Wisconsin. The ship was commissioned in 2020.
The use of Hoffer flow systems on the LCS ships continues a long history of our company providing flow meter solutions to Navy’s around the world for shipboard use. Hoffer has supplied flow systems on Navy ships for numerous flow applications including for fuel flow measurement systems for the propulsion plant, missile cooling systems, trim and drain systems and flow switches for use in the fire control system.
