Titan’s Oval Gear flowmeters are suited for lubrication-flow monitoring systems on compressors and rock-crushing machinery and for monitoring forward and reverse fuel flows on marine diesel engines.

The flowmeters feature windows to allow visual flow checking, custom wiring harnesses, special anodising and other material finish options.

Titan high-precision Oval Gear flowmeters can monitor a viscous fluid flow at flow rates up to 500l/min, using stainless steel, Peek or other body materials at up to 150C and 700 bar.

Unlike other flowmeters, measurement accuracy improves as the liquid viscosity increases, from a nominal one per cent to around 0.1 per cent of flowrate at higher viscosities.

Units with special fluid connections, custom-designed fittings and wiring harnesses simplify installation in any machine or system.

In an Oval Gear flowmeter, the flowing fluid causes a pair of meshing gears to rotate inside an accurately machined housing: the rotation allows the passage of a defined liquid volume, normally counted and recorded using an external magnetic pick-up linked to an electronic counter.

Normally available with stainless, aluminium or Peek bodies, Titan also offers the OG range of Oval Gear positive displacement meters with a transparent acrylic lid, allowing a visual flow check on the flowing liquid from the visible rotation of the gears.

The Oval Gear units are available in sizes from 1/4 to 2in, for flows between 1ml/min and 500l/min.

Individually flow calibrated, they are supplied with a traceable flow test certificate, for flows both in forward and reverse directions, if necessary.

The simple electronic pulse output can interface with Titan electronic units for flowrate and total indication, or can feed a 4-20mA signal into the machine control system directly: hazardous area certification is available for the electronic pick-ups.

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.
