Dealing with corrosive chemicals like hypochlorite has always been a trouble for chemical manufacturing companies. When a leading manufacturer of sodium hypochlorite was looking for a PVC flow meter they turned to Icon Process Controls. Truflo is a leading manufacturer of thermoplastic instrumentation and the PVC flow meter TK series is the perfect solution for measurement of corrosive fluids.
This PVC flow meter comes with a local LED display on it that will let the client know what their current flow rate is as well as keep a total of what has passed through it. It is an in-line PVC flow meter that features a true union design that is easy to install and simple to complete any maintenance on it.
The TK series PVC flow meter is offered in PVC, PP, PVDF and 316 stainless steel that makes it the perfect paddlewheel flow meter for chemicals and water applications. With an ETFE paddle, it is corrosion resistant and will hold up in the harshest conditions that involve corrosive chemicals. With any corrosive chemicals, you need to ensure that you select a paddle wheel flow meter that is PVC or another corrosion resistant plastic material to withstand chemicals like hydrochloric acid or sodium hypochlorite.
The issue with stainless steel with these chemicals is that the flow meter will corrode and eventually fail due to the chemical compatibility. The TK series PVC flow meter is offered with many different output options, the TKS PVC flow meter comes with a pulse output and a relay output to control valves or pumps.
The TKP PVC flow meter comes with a pulse output and totalizer on the display to keep track of how much liquid has been pumped through the meter. Its meter is the fully loaded PVC flow meter and features a pulse output, 4-20mA output and an LED display that will show the flow rate and keep track of how much liquid has been pumped through it.
