Titan Enterprises provides a range of insertion turbine liquid flow measurement systems for permanent or portable installation in larger-diameter pipelines from 40–900mm. Typical applications for insertion turbine flowmeters include water distribution mains, fire hydrant monitoring, boiler feed measurement, irrigation systems, district heating and HVAC systems.

Each insertion turbine meter contains two sensors: one self powered (for battery-operated equipment) and the other an open collector transistor. A reed switch may be specified for hazardous areas where simple apparatus is acceptable.

Titan’s PVDF turbine rotates freely on a 316 stainless steel shaft and has special aerofoil-shaped blades to extend the dynamic range of the meter. Installation from the side of the flow line is made via a 1.5in BSP or NPT fitting, and versions are available for ‘hot-tap’ insertion into pressurised lines.

The body of Titan’s insertion turbine flowmeters is manufactured from AISI316 stainless steel and as standard is supplied with three meters of five-core screened instrument cable.

Key features and benefits

  • Due to the relatively small disturbance the insertion turbine metering head introduces to a pipe, pressure losses for this type of flowmeter are very low, thereby producing energy savings by reducing pumping costs.
  • Each insertion turbine meter contains two sensors.
  • Titan’s PVDF turbine has a specially contoured housing that further improves the meter linearity, particularly at lower fluid velocities.
  • Titan Metra-Count, Metra-Smart and Metra-Batch devices can all be mounted directly onto a turbine insertion flowmeter to provide a display of flow rate, total or batch control.
  • The body of each flowmeter is manufactured from AISI316 stainless steel.

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.
