A high-pressure, low-inertia version of the 900 series turbine flowmeter for measuring refrigerant flow is now available from Titan Enterprises.

900 series turbine flowmeters

Adapted with steel reinforced polymer components to give a pressure rating of 40 bar, the low-inertia turbines of the 900 series flowmeter are suitable for measuring the low viscosities (0.3 to 0.4 centipoises) encountered with volatile refrigerant fluids measured in the liquid form.

With careful sensor selection, the pressure drop through the 900 series flowmeter is designed to be low enough to prevent gas break-out and ensure reliable flow measurement.

Key features and specifications

  • 900 series is designed to give high performance (±0.1 per cent repeatability) across six flow ranges from 0.05 to 15 litres per minute
  • Chemically resistant components make it suitable for metering a range of fluids from -25°C to +125°C
  • Polymer components are moulded in an FDA-approved grade of PVDF and mounted in a 316 stainless steel body
  • Precision turbine rotates freely on robust sapphire bearings and contains encapsulated ceramic magnets that are detected through the chamber wall by a Hall-effect detector
  • Output is a NPN pulse that is readily interfaced with most electronic display or recording devices
  • This is a long-life product that offers reliable operation throughout

Titan Enterprises

With more than 40 years’ experience in flowmeter innovation — Titan Enterprises Ltd is a UK-based manufacturer of high-performance solutions such as the Atrato ultrasonic flowmeter, oval gear flowmeters and the low flow turbine flowmeters and instrument range. Our knowledgable team can offer either an off-the-shelf meter or fully bespoke flow system designed for a particular application, whether it is a low-cost OEM solution or a specialist flowmeter in exotic materials you are looking for.

Titan’s company philosophy of ‘pushing the envelope by trying to do things a little different and better’ has resulted in sales of more than 500,000 products in 50 countries worldwide and a repeat purchase percentage of 95 per cent — something that founder Trevor Forster is justly proud of.

Today, Titan supplies innovative flow measurement solutions to a broad range of sectors, including medical, industrial, food and drink, laboratory and pharmaceutical. Its latest innovation — the Atrato flowmeter range — is set to challenge conventional flowmeter thinking the world over. The culmination of eight years’ research and development in collaboration with the Department of Process & Engineering at Cranfield University (UK), it can handle low flows from laminar to turbulent and is largely immune from viscosity effects.

For higher-volume users we can tailor the design of a flowmeter to match your exact application requirements and thus not compromise achievable results with a less-than-ideal sensor. The resultant device would be unique to your application but would still benefit from Titan’s tried-and-tested, modern manufacturing methods to ensure a competitive OEM solution. From an initial concept Titan can offer a complete service from budget costings through prototypes to full production. Often the cost of origination and tooling can be amortised over the life of the product.

All flowmeters produced by Titan are designed and manufactured to ISO9001 and calibrated to an uncertainty of ±0.25 per cent. We produce chemically resistant, high-accuracy digital flowmeters that are not only competitively priced but are engineered to give long-term reliable performance.

However, the value of a flowmeter cannot be judged by price alone. Often in industrial applications the reliability of a product far outweighs the initial purchase price as ‘downtime’ is extremely expensive. At Titan, we endeavour to produce devices that are inherently reliable but are manufactured using the latest and most economical production techniques.
