High-precision oval-gear (OG) flowmeters from Titan Enterprises can monitor viscous fluid flow at flow rates of up to 500 litres per minute using stainless steel, PEEK or other body materials at up to 150ºC and up to 700 bar.

Typical applications include the monitoring of lubrication flow in compressors and rock-crushing machinery, the monitoring of forward and reverse fuel flows on marine diesel engines, the measurement of syrup injections in beverage lines, the automated dispensing of cooking oils, checking the flow rate and volume of batch chemicals and the monitoring of wax finishes, perfumes and sizing chemicals that are sprayed onto paper.

According to the company, unlike other flowmeters, the measurement accuracy of OG flowmeters improves as the liquid viscosity increases, from a nominal one per cent to around 0.1 per cent of flow rate at higher viscosities.

Key features and specifications

  • Oval-shaped gear-toothed rotors rotate within a chamber of specified geometry; as these rotors turn, they sweep out and trap a precise volume of fluid between the outer oval shape of the gears and the inner chamber walls, with none of the fluid actually passing through the gear teeth.
  • Magnets are embedded in the rotors, which then actuate a reed switch or provide a pulse output via a Hall Effect sensor; each pulse or switch closure then represents a precise increment of liquid volume that passes through the meter.
  • Titan OG flowmeters are available in sizes from 0.25in to 2in (6mm to 51mm), for flows between 1ml per minute and 500 litres per minute.
  • Individually flow calibrated, they are supplied with a traceable flow test certificate, for flows both in forward and reverse directions, if necessary.
  • Options are available for the monitoring of aggressive/hazardous fluids; in addition, feature windows can be included to allow visual flow checking.
  • Each OG flowmeter provides an electronic pulse output, enabling simple interfacing with flow rate indicators or machine control systems.
  • Compact and ruggedly designed, the OG flowmeters are claimed to combine high performance with a low cost of ownership.

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.
