DP SERIES INSERTION FLOW METER

The FLOMEC® DP Series insertion meters use a paddlewheel design to measure the flow of water, fuels, and other low viscosity liquids in pipe sizes 1.5” – 100” (10 – 2500 mm). DP Series Insertion Meters are a versatile and economical product for flow measurement in large pipes, where they provide moderately accurate readings at an exceptionally low cost of ownership.

DP SERIES FEATURES & BENEFITS

IECEx/ATEX models available, making the product safe to use in flammable liquid applications

1.5% of reading accuracy provides exceptional measurement accuracy with limited investment

DP Series Insertion Flow Meter Right

Extremely versatile design means one product is suited for a huge variety of pipe sizes

Only one moving part provides a reliable product with minimal maintenance costs

Sizes & Flowrates

The FLOMEC® DP490 is exceptionally suited to measurement of water flow in pipe sizes up to 36” / 900mm in size, where installed cost is more critical than extreme accuracy. In these situations the DP490 can be a perfect alternative to an electromagnetic meter or a clamp-on ultrasonic, where the DP490 can achieve exceptionally repeatable results at +/-1.5% accuracy, at a fraction of the cost of alternative technologies.

The DP490 is also suitable for measurement of any low viscosity liquid in a large pipe, such as fuels and solvents, where the intrinsically safe display options on the DP490 allow installation in any IECEx or ATEX area.

The DP Series meters are the perfect solution for measuring water flows in large pipes where optimal cost is critical.

Typical Applications Include: 

  • Water distribution
  • Water treatment
  • Boiler feed water
  • Ballast water control
  • HVAC water flow monitoring
  • Fire system monitoring
  • Waste water
  • Hydrant flow testing
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

The DP meter is a velocity type meter which requires straight run pipe in the upstream and downstream of the meter. This means there should be no obstruction to develop a uniform flow profile at the point were the meter is to be installed . The required straight run pipe is 10x pipe diameter in the upstream and 5x pipe diameter in downstream.
