AW-Lake Introduces Pelton Wheel High Temp Turbine Flow Meter

Measures ultra-high temp oils in heating and cooling circuit systems

Published: Tuesday, January 25, 2022 - 12:14

(AW-Lake: Oak Creek, WI) -- AW-Lake Company introduces the TRP Pelton Wheel High Temp Turbine Flow Meter specifically designed to monitor and control the cooling and process efficiency of high and ultra-high temperature oil used in heating and cooling circuits.

Maintaining ideal temperatures is imperative in metal die-casting to control metal solidification, improve casting quality and decrease cycle times. A combination of heating and cooling circuits controls the die temperature during the production process. Hot oil often is used as the heating method to achieve a uniform temperature, especially in the upper part of the die. With accuracies of 2.5% and repeatability of 0.5% the TRP Pelton Wheel High Temp Turbine Flow Meter provides cost effective measurement of oil volume flow rates in heating and cooling circuits, even in the toughest applications with contaminated or extremely hot media.

AW-Lake Pelton flow meter

The TRP Pelton Wheel High Temp Turbine Flow Meters offers four flow ranges of 75 to 7.5 gpm, 2.5 to 25 gpm, 4 to 40 gpm, 8 to 75 gpm across all meter sizes from ½” to 1”. Media temperature range for non ex zones is -76°F to 662°F (-60 to 350°C) and -4°F to 464°F (-20 to 240°C) for ex zones. The Turbine Flow Meters can tolerate operating pressure up to 290 psi (20 bar) A 303 stainless steel housing enables the Pelton Wheel High Temp Turbine Flow to accurately measure contaminated and high temperature media with high reliability and long service life.

The Pelton Wheel High Temp Turbine Flow Meters are the latest addition to AW Lake’s portfolio of High Temperature Variable Area Flow Meters that offers an output for flow data transmission to a PC, PLC, or control room.
