Turbine Flow meter

The turbine flow meter translates the mechanical action of the turbine rotating in the liquid flow around an axis into a user-readable rate of flow (GPM, LPM, etc.). The turbine tends to have all the flow traveling around it.

The turbine wheel is set in the path of a fluid stream. The flowing fluid impinges on the turbine blades, imparting a force to the blade surface and setting the rotor in motion. When a steady rotation speed has been reached, the speed is proportional to fluid velocity.

Turbine Flow meter Overview

A turbine flow meter is a volume sensing device. As liquid or gas passes through the turbine housing, it causes the freely suspended turbine blades to rotate. The velocity of the turbine rotor is directly proportional to the velocity of the fluid passing through the flow meter.

Turbine Flowmeters Principle

A liquid turbine meter is used for volumetric total flow and/or flow rate measurement and has a relatively simple theory of operation. As fluid flows through the meter, it impinges upon turbine blades that are free to rotate about an axis along the center line of the turbine housing.
