The FLOMEC® A1 Series Flow Meter (Nylon) is designed as self-contained, battery-powered units. Select the A1 Series when you need an accurate, efficient meter.

The durable nylon body of the A1 Series makes it perfect for water and non-agressive chemicals to suit a wide range of industries, from irrigation and agriculture to construction and plumbing.

The enhanced display and compact design allows for simple, hassle-free inline installation, which can measure liquid in just minutes and display information in multiple formats to give you greater reading flexibility.

The A1 series can also be field calibrated to suit different fluids to cater to changing requirements and allow for greater field versatility.

The A1 Series - Nylon is recommended for use with Water and Mild Chemicals

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What lengths of pipe are recommended before and after the meter so it is accurate?

You want to take the diameter of the meter times 10 on the inlet and times 5 on the outlet. For a 1 in. meter this would be 10 in. of straight 1 ft pipe going in and 5 in. of straight 1 ft pipe coming out. If you cannot do this you will not make the meter worthless, but you cut into the accuracy.

What happens if the air goes through a turbine meter?

Turbine meters can not tell the difference between air and liquid. It just knows the turbine is spinning, so any reading will be inaccurate if air is going through the turbine. Another reason to not put air through a turbine is potential damage. The air will make it spin extra fast, with no liquid for lubrication damage can occur. When the liquid gets there it can hit the turbine like a hammer. It is recommended to slowly bleed the air out of the lines then reset the meter total.

Can a turbine go below the minimum listed flow range?

In general you can expect a turbine meter to keep counting below its minimum range, but it will lose some of its accuracy. Normally it will completely stop at ½ of its published minimum flow. For example a ½ in. meter that reads between 1 and 10 LPM will be able to stretch down to around 1/2 a litre per minute. Keep in mind that nothing below the published minimum flow is guaranteed, and not all turbines will give this much extra performance.

Do the Turbine meters come with a calibration report?

The G Series, G2 Series and A1 Series Meters all come with a calibration report. This report is the data of the output of the meter at several flowrate points and will meet or exceed the advertised accuracy of the meter over the recommended flow range. This report should not be confused with a calibration certificate. (If a certificate is needed, request one from GPI.)

Can I remotely mount the display?

Yes, you can purchase a FM Approved Remote Kit (part # 113275-1). You can take the existing display off of your TM, A1 or G2 series meters, and put the remote kit in its place. At the other end of the remote kit is a box that is designed to be panel mounted. The existing display can then be installed on the remote box.
