Mission-Critical Cooling Flow Monitoring for Military Systems

Hoffer turbine flowmeters excel in thermal management flow applications for cooling such as radar cooling, chiller applications, cooling systems and cooling towers.

Recently Hoffer Flow Controls’ flow systems have been specified to meter applications for land-based radar cooling. These meters are a part of a recently received new contract to supply flow meters as part of the U.S. Army’s next generation, 360 degree capable radar called the LTAMDS or Lower Tier Air and Missile Defense Sensors. The radar used on this land-based missile will upgrade and eventually replace the current U.S. Army’s Patriot radar/missile and will operate as part of the Army’s Integrated Air and Missile Defense network.

Hoffer turbine 4” flowmeters were specified on this project and will be used to measure water/glycol for radar cooling on this land based, mobile unit designed for the U.S. Army. The LTAMDS, is a radar designed to defeat advanced and next-generation threats including hypersonic weapons, or those that fly faster than a mile a second.

The Hoffer 4” flow meters are supplied with CAT-3 intelligent transmitters/signal conditioners mounted integral to the flow meters. These systems will be used to provide flow measurement of the water/glycol that is used to keep the radar systems properly cooled. Keeping the radar systems cooled is massively important to their reliability. The fully functioning radar is critical to the defense system.

Hoffer has been providing superior flow meter systems for use in critical flow measurement applications for government/defense for 52+ years. Numerous defense prime contractors, as well as the various military branches, have specified Hoffer systems for use in a wide variety of high-profile/critical flow applications. In addition, Hoffer flow meters are also used to measure fuel flow on U.S. Navy ships and helicopters, for (reverse osmosis) RO water treatment on ships, and for shipboard radar cooling applications. The flow systems used for shipboard, land-based or air based flow applications have been tested to meet various MIL standards including shock, vibration and EMI.
Hoffer Flow Controls is pleased to provide high quality, highly accurate turbine flow meter systems to the U.S. Army, U.S. Navy and other areas of the U.S. defense and aerospace industries.
