Turbine flow meter is used for volumetric total flow or flow rate measurement and has a relatively simple working principle. As fluid flow through the turbine meter, it impinges upon turbine blade that is free to rotate about an axis along the center line of the turbine housing. The angular or rotational velocity of the turbine rotor is directly proportional to the fluid velocity flowing through the turbine. The resulting output is taken by an electrical pickoff mounted on the flow meter body.
Turbine flowmeters are easy to maintain, durable and versatile. These flowmeters are used in multiple industries to reliably measure the velocity of a variety of liquids, gases and vapors in pipes, such as hydrocarbons, chemicals, water, cryogenic liquids, air, natural gases, etc
