Flowmeter (Brooks)
Variable area meters, or rotameters, measure the rate of flow of a liquid through a tapered vertical tube in which a small float is lifted until the float's weight is balanced with the fluid force.

Rugged metal tube variable area meters (rotameters) are ideal for high pressure, high temperature, and other demanding flow applications where safety is a concern.


Advantages
  • Approved for use in hazardous environments
  • Multiple connection options to match your existing system and provide easy installation
  • Many corrosion resistant material options for the metering of aggressive fluids
  • Alarm and 4-20mA with HART and LCD display options provide for remote flow monitoring
  • Excellent meter repeatability provides consistent batch and/or process production
  • No power required which reduces installation cost and provides flow measurement in hazardous area
  • Low-pressure drop
