Major Appliance Manufacturer Selects Flow Technology Ultrasonic Flow Meter for Testing Water Consumption in Appliances
TEMPE, Ariz., March 30, 2023 – FTI Flow Technology LLC (FTI), a leading manufacturer of precision flow measurement instruments, systems and calibrators, announced that a major appliance manufacturer selected its QCT_PA12 in-line ultrasonic flow meter for testing water consumption in appliances. FTI will supply over 150 flow meters in 1/8-inch and 1/4-inch sizes for the testing program. The QCT_PA12 Series flow meter was preferred for its high accuracy and reliability over the flow range.
The QCT_PA12 Series in-line ultrasonic flow meter is a highly accurate, rugged, compact, and lightweight instrument for use in low-viscosity liquid applications requiring excellent accuracy and reliability. Constructed from Nylon-12 (PA12) material, the flow meter has no moving parts, a non-wetted sensor, and nothing in the flow stream to cause an obstruction to the flow path. Accuracy is +/-0.5 percent of reading plus zero stability and repeatability is +/-0.2 percent over 10:1 calibration range. It has a 0.035 to 250 GPM flow range, 14°F to 176°F (-10°C to 80°C) temperature range, and analog, scaled frequency and Modbus RTU outputs. The QCT_PA12 Series meter is available in sizes 1/8 inch to 2 inches.
“The QCT_PA12 Series flow meter is ideal for large-scale, low-viscosity liquid flow measuring applications like this testing program,” said Ralph Duffill, president of FTI Flow Technology LLC. “Water is too important to waste, and the flow meter’s excellent accuracy and zero maintenance will be real assets in the manufacture of high-efficiency appliances that will use less water.”
The QCT_PA12 Series is an exceptional solution for measuring low-viscosity liquids in a number of industries, such as chemical, food & beverage, pharmaceutical, plastics, power generation, pulp & paper, semiconductor, and steel. The meter’s construction also makes it the meter of choice for many high purity and corrosive liquids. Typical applications include water treatment for boilers and cooling towers, clean-in-place (CIP) systems, mechanical seal flushing/cooling, process water, cooling loops, reverse osmosis (RO) systems, small-line injection systems, and larger DI water distribution systems and high-purity filtration systems.
