Universal Flow Monitors adds intrinsic safety to Coolpoint flowmeters

January 3, 2012 - Universal Flow Monitors. announces Coolpoint vortex shedding flowmeters with Intrinsic Safety as an option. CoolPoint vortex shedding flowmeters are electronic instruments that measure and monitor water flows. Unlike mechanical switches, the vortex shedding meters have no moving parts to stick or coat, eliminating potential for clogging.

The Intrinsic Safety feature is available on 1/4", 3/8", ½", 3/4", 1", 1 ½" and 2", CoolPoint meters. The transmitter with Intrinsic Safety is a 2 wire 4-20mA transmitter that has approved barriers and no display, alarm or pulse output. It conforms to requirements for NEC Class I, Division 1, Group D environments.

The standard CoolPoint flow rate transmitter is a 4-20 mA 3 wire transmitter, which has the following standard feature and user-configurable options:

  •    Brass body with viton seals and PVDF sensors
  •    Available in pipe sizes ranging from 1/4 inch to 4 inches
  •    Flow repeatability is ± .25 percent (1/4 of 1 percent)
  •    ± 2 percent full-scale accuracy at maximum flow
  •    Turndown ratio 10:1
  •    3 wire 4-20 mA flow rate transmitter with visual 3-digit LED readout, selectable alarm state (N.O. or N.C.), set point or pulse output and engineering unit choice of GPM or LPM.

In addition to the Intrinsic Safety feature, Universal Flow Monitors makes the following are additional options available on the CoolPoint flowmeters:

  •   Totalizer that provides information on the amount of liquid used in the process. The totalizer features a pulse output, reset button, and six-digit LED display that can display liters or gallons.
  •   Stainless steel (higher cost) or PVC/CPVC bodies (lower cost)
  •   Flow and temperature transmitter
  •   20:1 turndown ratio available in most popular sizes

Universal Flow Monitors, Inc., located in Hazel Park, Michigan, has manufactured flowmeters for a variety of industries for more than 30 years.
