Flow Sensor Relies On Pelton Wheel

Flow Sensor Relies On Pelton Wheel
Kobold Instruments Inc.

The DPM flow sensor uses the pelton wheel principle to measure the flow of water and water-based, low-viscosity liquids that are optically transparent. Liquid passes through a nozzle at the inlet of the flow body and is directed onto a flat-blade pelton turbine. The turbine wheel rotates at a speed proportional to flow rate and movement is detected optically. The signal from the optical sensor is processed as an amplified pulse or 4-mA to 20-mA signal, both of which are proportional to flow rate. Inlet flow is redirected via a nozzle, therefore, no inlet or outlet straight piping is required and allows the unit to be mounted in any orientation with the axle remaining in the horizontal plane.
