Insertion Probe Flowmeter Solution

The Chamber - the pipe passes through the chamber and there is tapping on the pipe where the insertion probe flowmeter is then fitted.

The Flowmeter - measuring the point velocity of the liquid in a pipe. Flows in very large pipes can be measured this way using relatively inexpensive flowmeters. There are two types of insertion flowmeters, an axial (propeller type) and a radial type (water wheel). Accuracy is similar in both and the fluid velocity profile in the pipe must be fully developed as the arithmetic for the whole pipe throughput is calculated from this point flow measurement.

The Kiosk – the signal from the probe is then taken back to the kiosk and recorded. The information is transmitted via a satellite modem to the end user. This particular method is an ideal solution for remote locations.
