Erdco See-Flo 3200 Meters indicate flow rate and permit visual inspection of water, air or other transparent fluids. For general purpose industrial service, See-Flo® meters handle a wide range of process fluids in vertical or horizontal piping runs. The wedge shape of the meter housing makes See-Flo® practically self-cleaning. Where periodic maintenance might be necessary, the tempered glass window is easily removed and replaced.
- Instantaneous flow rate measurement.
- Observe fluid conditions for color, clarity, and flow.
- Use in horizontal or vertical piping systems.
- Individually calibrated for fluid and operating conditions.
- User-selectable 10:1 turndown flow ranges. (See Meter Rangeability Sizing Tables)
- User-selectable units of measure including dual units of measure.
- No floats to get stuck, tubes to break or dynamic seals to leak.
- Low-pressure loss.
- Simple design with few parts for long service life.
Principle of operation
Erdco Armor-FloTM meters are variable area flow rate meters (“rotameter”). See-Flo® meters are variable area flow rate meters (“rotameter”). The internal volume of the housing enlarges from the inlet to the outlet.
The primary element is a tempered alloy vane with one end affixed to the apex of the meter housing. As the flow rate changes, the vane is flexed in direct proportion.
The 1/2“, 3/4“, and 1” connections typically have female threaded ends. Sizes 1 1/4” through 12″ utilize an integral by-pass housing enables larger connection sizes in the format of a spool with a consistent 12″ end to end dimension. In addition, it permits a wide variety of connection types which include threaded, flanged, grooved ends and tri-clamp.
