Viscosity-compensated plastic flowmeter and switch for liquids

Home Metals Cutting & Welding Viscosity-compensated plastic flowmeter and switch for liquids

INSTROTECH is offering Kobold’s VKP plastic flowmeters that operate on a special suspended float principle with cylindrical measuring tube and spring-loaded float with orifice.

The float in model VKP-3 has slots mounded onto the outside, which protect the instrument from soiling by “capturing” dirt particles.

“The danger of the float jamming is thus considerably reduced and soiled liquids with a particle size up to 400mm can be measured without difficulty,” the company said in a statement, adding that in model VKP-2, the sharp-edged orifice in the float renders the instrument less sensitive to changes in viscosity.

VKP specs at a glance:

  • Measuring range: 2-20 … 20-100 l/min water; 1-18 …10-75 l/min oil
  • Accuracy: +5% of full scale
  • Pressure: maximum 16bar; temperature: maximum 120°C
  • Connection: G1, 1” NPT PVC glue-in connection, inserts G1/2,G3/4 soldering connection 18mm, 22mm
  • Material: polysulfone

Instrotech said the model VKP was suitable for applications in lubricant circuits, domestic electrical, installations, machine tools, solar energy systems, cooling circuits, welding machines, and pumps.
