HS SERIES

High shock load applications

HS Series “high shock” turbine flowmeters are specifically designed to withstand pressure spikes that create hydraulic shock waves in fluids when actuators or rams are activated. This water hammer effect can dislodge the internals or sheer rotor blades off other turbine designs. The HS Series is based on the FT design providing the same high level of accuracy, with added benefits of a ruggedized housing and reinforced rotor to eliminate protential damage from fluid shock.

QUICK SPECS

  • High line pressures and hydraulic shock load applications
  • Accuracy: ±0.25%
  • Repeatability: ±0.05% of reading
  • Linearity: ±0.1% (100:1) with linearizing electronics
  • Flow Rates: 0.03 to 450 GPM (0.1 to 1,700 LPM)
  • Materials of Construction: 316 SS housing and 430F SS rotor
  • End Fittings: NPT, MS, SAE 4-Bolt and Dynamic Beam Seal
  • Operating Pressure: Size and end fitting dependent
