Insertion Paddle Wheel Flow Meter Offers Cost-Effective Measurement

Described as a cost-effective component, the DOR series insertion paddle wheel flow sensor measures the flow of water or water-like liquids in large pipes. The sensor inserts into the process piping via a suitable tee, thread-o-let or half coupling. Flow through the pipe results in rotation of the paddle wheel which is proportional to the flow velocity and to the flow rate in the pipe. The DOR features an all 316 L stainless steel body and the rotor is made of PVDF or PEEK, with a long-life graphite/PTFE self-lubricating bearing. It has an integral, precision insertion mechanism that allows insertion of the rotor to a precise depth in the pipe for optimal readings. Available signal outputs include NPN open collector frequency, and/or reed contact frequency or millivolt frequency. Optional indicators include battery powered totalizers and loop powered rate meter/totalizers with outputs and batch controllers. A datasheet is available at
