AW-Lake flow meter features clear view of fluid condition
AW-Lake Company, the leading North American manufacturer and distributor of flow meter products, has announced the release of a new variable area flow meter, adding to Lake Monitor's brand of flow measuring instruments. As the name indicates, the ClearView flow meter was designed with a clear body for applications where it is important to observe fluid condition. This new meter offers an economical, yet superior technology to replace Lake's phased-out VisiRate monitor.
For fluid media compatibility, the ClearView meter is offered in two models: ClearView H2O for water applications and ClearView + for oils & chemicals, such as solvents and coolants. The ClearView meter is available in a variety of sizes and porting options, including NPT and BSPP in brass or polysulphone. Measuring accuracy of the ClearView flow meter is ±5% of full scale, with repeatability of ±1% of full scale.
Lake engineers developed the new meter's compact, rugged design to resolve issues with cracking, which is an area where competitive meters of this type often fail.
