BLFT Turbine Installation for Hydrant Operating Company
As part of an ongoing collaboration with an aviation fuel management company based at Heathrow airport, Bell Flow Systems were asked to supply an ATEX rated, accurate and reliable monitoring system with a live digital flow rate readout.
This particular requirement was to replace an old positive displacement meter that was no longer functioning, but to avoid altering existing pipe work it was requested that the new meter have the exact same face to face length as the previous one. Additionally the display was requested to be orientated a 45 degree angle, as to be easily visible for the operator.
Using the dimensions given, Bell Flow Systems were able to provide a bespoke BLFT Turbine meter, which was able to fit into the system without any changes to the run of pipe. The 1 ½” turbine meter has a flow range of 55-550 L/Min, and is suitable for operating temperatures of - 30ºC to + 120ºC. That paired with an ATEX pickup and display makes it ideal for this type of application.
All of the BLFT Turbine meter range come with a 5-point calibration certificate and are made from a 304 Stainless Steel as a standard with a choice of threaded, flanged, or hygienic fittings.
