Metri IC-IPM Insertion Paddlewheel Flow Meter

Metri Measurements made in britain

The Metri IC-IPM Insertion Paddlewheel Meter?(IPM)?Series is the ideal liquid flow meter for insertion into pipe sizes ranging from 40mm to 300mm. Simple to install and operate, this cost effective robust radial turbine meter provides accurate velocity measurement of a variety of liquid types such as water, oils, hydrocarbons and chemicals.

The Insertion Paddle Wheel Flow Meter is ideal for use within building services, process plant machinery and remote access areas where minimal pressure drop and fitting to existing pipework is key. The Metri IC-IPM ?can be connected to either a battery or mains powered display; providing additional flowrate, totalizer, batch and ratio control functionality with a wide choice of outputs and communications options.

The Metri Insertion Paddlewheel Meter comprises of a rugged, machined stainless steel rotor supported on a highly polished tungsten carbide shaft with dual sapphire ringtone bearings for reduced friction and an extended service life.

Each meter houses a self-powered VR sensor for remote and battery operation; ATEX/IECEx certified equipment is also available for hazardous area applications.
