1/2" Water Meter For Cold Water
1/2" brass bodied Water Meter for measuring the volume of flow through pipework with pulsed output and flow totalisation.
1/2" BSP Water Meter CTFI 15 Introduction
The CTFI 15 is a 1/2" BSP threaded contacting head water meter, manufactured with a brass body, for use with clean water and ideally suited for process applications where accurate measurements of water flow are required.
Designed for use with clean water, such as towns water, the CTFI 15 is rated to a temperature up to 30°C and a pressure of up to 16 Bar. The CTFI 15 may be installed in any position and provides precision flow measurements with a maximum flow rate of 1.5 m3 / Hr.
The robustly constructed water meter is designed to be screwed into pipework using the 1/2" threaded connection to measure the volume of water flowing past the water meter.
The 1/2" BSP water meter CTFI 15 has a high sensitivity turbine impulse sensor which drives a large accurate gear train to provide both totalisation and the pulsed output.
1/2" BSP Water Meter With Pulsed Output
The turbine sensor is both antimagnetic and non-hygroscopic and drives a large and accurate gear train.
The resulting digital signal is via pulsed volt free contacts, proportional to the flow rate - the K Factor of the 1/2" BSP Water meter CTFI 15 is K = 0.25, giving 1 pulse per 0.25 litres. We also offer the CTFI 15 model with a K = 1.0 to give 1 pulse per 1 litre.
The pulsed output signal is rated at 24 V - 0.2 A and the supplied cable length is 2 metres.
The CTFI 15 can be easily integrated into a dosing pump; batch controller; external counter or other piece of process control equipment that corresponds to a pulsed input, proportional to the liquid flow rate.
1/2" BSP Water Meter With Totalisation
As well as delivering a pulsed output signal, the CTFI 15 has a mechanical, non-resettable counter, which is displayed on the front of the water meter. The 5 digit mechanical counter displays the total volume of liquid that has flowed through the water meter in M3.
The mechanical counter and water meter frontage are covered in a transparent cover, manufactured in clear epoxy resin.
1/2" BSP Water Meter CTFI 15 Features & Benefits
The CTFI15 is an excellent way of measuring clean water entering a process. Used frequently on evaporative cooling tower make up water, softener feed water, in plating baths makeup water, to control flow proportional dosing and in any application where the volume of water flowing in a pipeline needs to be accurately measured.
The CTFI 15 is of simple design and proven construction. Designed to provide reliable, accurate and dependable measurement and to control many industrial processes. The CTFI 15 is a water meter with a 1/2" BSP threaded connection, so securing it in place for a long operational life is as simple as possible.
