Blending and Mixing

Litre Meter specialise in the design, manufacture and supply of flowmeters. The unique Pelton wheel based meter design ensures an inherent reliability which has been proven in more than three decades of operation. Listed below are all the flow meters within our range that are suitable for blending and mixing:

Pelton Wheel Also known as a radial turbine the highly efficient Pelton Wheel meter has some major advantages. The very large blade area compared with the flow inlet port size produces an exceptionally wide range flowmeter which can measure very low flows. The flow through the inlet of the meter is accurately directed onto the rotor which rotates at a speed in linear proportion to the flow rate. A small sensing coil detects the ferrites mounted in the flow meter rotor blade tips as they pass. No drag is imposed on the rotor which assists in the measurement of extremely low flows. Sapphire bearings provide a very low friction mechanically-robust bearing with long life characteristics. Turndown can be as high as 280:1. Ideally suited for low viscosity process liquids measurement up to 2" pipe sizes and larger and up to 10cSt. 0.003 to 500 l/min; ±2.0% of reading (also 1.0%); some models suitable for flow measurement at higher pressure.
Thermal Mass Capillary The Capillary Thermal principal of operation is based on heat transfer and the first law of thermodynamics. During operation, process gas enters the instrument’s flow body and it divides into two flow paths. The vast majority of the gas flow passes through the Laminar Flow Element (LFE) bypass. A very small portion of the total flow is diverted through a small “Capillary” sensor tube with an ID between .007 to .028 inches. This technology is ideal for gas flow measurement and gas flow control. Flowmeter accuracy: ±1% of full scale. From 0.1 to 4 sccm up to 1000 slpm.
Thermal Mass Industrial The immersible thermal sensor is completely immersed into the flow stream. As a result, immersible thermal mass flow meters measure much higher gas mass flow rates in harsher environments than capillary thermal mass flow meters. There is very little pressure drop across an immersible sensor, and the flow does not have to pass through the LFE as it does with a capillary thermal mass flow sensor. Available from Sierra in either inline flow bodied or insertion flowmeter styles. In-line mass flow meters from 0 to 0.7 nm³/h to 0-20000 nm3/h, +/-1% of reading; insertion flowmeters up to 72", +/- 2% of reading.
Gas Wet Drum Ritter manufacture a range of volumetric gas meters including the TG series drum-type, BG series bellow type and the unique MGC Milli Gas Counter.
Helical Screw

Positive displacement flowmeters, also known as PD meters, measure volumes of fluid flowing through by counting repeatedly the filling and discharging of known fixed volumes. A typical positive displacement flowmeter comprises a chamber that obstructs the flow. Inside the chamber, a rotating/reciprocating mechanical unit is placed to create fixed-volume discrete parcels from the passing fluid. The helical screw principle uses 2 counter rotating gears to form a continuous constant volume cavity. The SRZ series is available exclusively in stainless steel.
