PVC pipes are commonly used in agricultural irrigation, urban water supply networks and sewage treatment facilities due to their corrosion resistance and low cost. In the chemical industry, PVC pipes are often used to transport some non-corrosive or low-corrosive chemicals. In mining and some manufacturing industries, PVC pipes are used to transport gases and liquids, especially where the corrosion resistance of the material is required.
Therefore, it is important to monitor the flow of PVC pipes. We Sino-Inst offers Various flow meters. 3 of them are particularly suitable for PVC pipes. Let’s take a look together.
Featured Flow Meters for PVC Pipes
Electromagnetic flow meters, also called mag meters or magnetic meters. Mag meter is ideal for wastewater applications, or any dirty liquid which is conductive or water based. Accuracy over a wide flow range can be as good as ± 0.5% of flow rate or better.
GF Series Gear Flow Meter
Gear Flow Meter is a new product of ours. Gear Flow Meter is a type of positive displacement flow transmitter. It is a transmitter for measuring volume flow with high precision. Installation restrictions are smaller.
Ultrasonic flow meter, electromagnetic flow meter and gear flow meter are our Top 3 Flow Meters for PVC Pipes. Of course, this is because they have unique advantages.
Ultrasonic Flow Meters For PVC Pipes
Ultrasonic flow meters are an excellent choice for measuring flow in PVC pipes. Here are some reasons:
- Non-intrusive: Ultrasonic flow meters do not require direct contact with the fluid, meaning they do not disrupt the flow or contaminate the fluid being measured.
- Accurate: Ultrasonic flow meters are extremely accurate and provide precise flow measurements even under low flow conditions. The accuracy can reach 1%;
- Versatile: Ultrasonic flow meters can be used to measure a variety of fluids, including water, oil, and chemicals. As long as the liquid in the pipe is pure and single.
- Low Maintenance: Ultrasonic flow meters require minimal maintenance. Making it a cost-effective option in the long run.
- Easy to install: Ultrasonic flow meters can be installed without interrupting fluid flow, meaning they can be installed without shutting down the system.
- Can measure flow in both directions: Ultrasonic flow meters can measure flow in both directions, which is useful in certain applications.
Overall, ultrasonic flow meters are an excellent choice for measuring flow in PVC pipes. They provide accurate and reliable measurements while being easy to install and maintain.
Magnetic Flow Meters For PVC Pipes
Magnetic flow meters are a good choice for measuring flow in PVC pipes, especially when handling corrosive fluids. They provide accurate and reliable measurements while being easy to install and maintain. Compared with ultrasonic flowmeters, electromagnetic flowmeters can contain impurities in liquids. For example, waste water, sewage, sludge, etc. can all be measured.
- Suitable for corrosive fluids: Magnetic flow meters can be used to measure a variety of fluids, including corrosive chemicals that can damage other types of flow meters.
- Accurate: Even under low flow conditions, electromagnetic flowmeters provide accurate and reliable flow measurement with a high accuracy of 0.5%.
- Easy to install: Magnetic flow meters are easy to install and can be integrated into existing PVC piping systems without interrupting the flow of fluids.
- Low Maintenance: Magnetic flow meters require minimal maintenance, making them a cost-effective option in the long run.
- Multiple Pipe Sizes: Magnetic flowmeters can be used with a variety of pipe sizes, making them suitable for a variety of applications. Large size PVC pipes can choose plug-in electromagnetic flow meters.
Gear Flow Meters For PVC Pipes
Gear flow meter is our new product. It has excellent performance in the field of small flow measurement. At the same time, the gear flowmeter is available in three materials: aluminum alloy, stainless steel and polytetrafluoroethylene. It can meet the measurement requirements of corrosive liquids and high-viscosity liquids.
Compared with electromagnetic flowmeters, gear flowmeters have simpler installation conditions. Gear flow meters do not require straight pipe sections. Can be measured both forward and reverse.
