May 11, 2017– Aplus Finetek Sensor announced the introduction of the EPR Series Paddlewheel Flowmeter. Using magnetic paddlewheel technology and electronics, the EPR continuously measures the flow of liquids in pipes with a velocity range of 0.98ft/s~32.8ft/s (0.3m/s~10.0m/s) in pipe sizes from ¾” through 2” (DN20 to DN50). The EPR will work in applications where fluid is clean, up to impurity level of 1% with particle size up to 0.5mm. The EPR measures the flow velocity by using the fluid flow to drive a rotating blade. This then generates pulses related to fluid velocity and that can be converted to an analog 4-20mA output by optional electronics or that can be taken directly into a receiving device that can convert the pulses/min to a flowrate using the K factor for the meter.
The materials and electronic technologies allows us to manufacture am accurate flowmeter for a range of applications. Other features and specifications include a 12-36VDC power supply, choice of a pulse output or flow transmitter with 4-20mA output, available digital display with built-in totalizer, and an RS485 MODBUS serial link. Accuracy is ±0.3%, with linearity of ±0.5% F.S. and repeatability of ±0.4%. The EPR can be used with operating temperature up to 212‚Å∞F (100‚Å∞C) and pressure up to 145psi (10bar).
