Dwyer Series HF In-Line Flow Sensors

Low Cost, Durable Flow Monitors have a patented design based on a floating sharp-edged orifice disk and variable area flow measurement to yield accuracy of ±2.5% over center one-third of scale. This unique design allows accurate performance with fluid viscosities up to 500 SSU. All internal wetted parts are contained inside a sealed metal tubular casing assuring a virtually maintenance-free unit. Flowing media forces linear motion of a spring loaded, sharp edge orifice disk and ring shaped transfer magnet which both ride on a tapered center shaft. The transfer magnet drives a clearly visible magnet follower located outside the flow tube, protected under the clear Lexan® tube. A ring on the magnet follower indicates flow rate on the direct reading scale. Rubber bumpers are provided for external impact resistance.

Designed for single-direction flow, Series HF Monitors are recommended for use with system filtration of a least 74 microns or a 200 mesh screen. Some applications may also require magnetic filtration.

Brass and stainless steel models are calibrated for water with 1.0 specific gravity. For a fluid with a significantly different specific gravity, a correction factor can be determined by using the following formula.
