Turbine flowmeters

Tecnova ht is able to provide a wide range of reliable and efficient solutions, adapted to various types of applications.

The turbine flowmeters are on the market since 1925 and they have proved their worth in various applications, including the harsh ones in the Oil & Gas sector.

The turbine flowmeter Tecnova ht can operate at very high temperatures and pressures. It is intended for applications involving liquid, gaseous and cryogenic materials (never steam).

The flowmeters do not require maintenance and can be made of different materials, such as Carbon Steel, Stainless Steel, Duplex, Hastelloy.

The turbine flowmeter Tecnova ht brings many advantages and guarantees a refined mechanics and high precision with an immediate response time.

The turbine flowmeter calculates the flow rate of the fluid in relation to its speed: thanks to the thrust of the fluid, the rotation speed is linear to the flow. The coil is equipped with a permanent magnet and, once the passage of the blade is detected, the pick-up sends a pulse. The volume of the poured fluid is indicated by the total of the pulses. Their frequency also indicates the flow rate: Q = K * nmt

Q = volumetric flow rate
K = Constant of Proportionality of each turbine (k-factor)
Nmt = number of turns

The K constant, indicated on the meter body and on the calibration certificates, is calculated through the calibration of the flowmeter.
