Universal Flow Monitors offers viscosity-insensitive flowmeters
Universal Flow Monitors, Inc. introduces L Series viscosity-insensitive flowmeters for circulating lubrication systems in industrial machinery.
L Series flowmeters assure delivery of circulating lubrication oil to machine bearings. The piston-style flowmeters maintain +/- 5 percent accuracy for lubrication oils with a viscosity range between 40 and 200 centipoise. Although operating in the 40 - 200 CP viscosity range is standard, a meter can be optimized for specific viscosities within that range.
The viscosity-insensitive L Series meters can monitor lube oil flow rates from 2 to 20 gallons per minute (7.6 to 75.7 liters per minute). The meters monitor rate of oil flow, provide flow rate indication to assist in problem diagnosis, and respond immediately if flow goes too low.
L Series meters from Universal Flow Monitors are mechanical units that require no power. They include a field-adjustable, high-amperage Micro Switch® that can be wired to trigger equipment shutdown for protection against bearing damage.
The L Series flowmeters are Type 4 weatherproof units with wetted parts of aluminum, brass, stainless steel and Viton® fluorocarbon elastomer. The meters accommodate maximum ambient temperatures of 150 degrees F (65 degrees C), maximum fluid temperatures of 200 degrees F (93 degrees C) and maximum pressure to 500 PSI (35 Bar).
L Series flowmeters are easy to install, operate and maintain. They mount in any orientation, with no straight pipe runs required. The meters have CSA and CE ratings. NIST traceable calibration is available.
Universal Flow Monitors, Inc., located in Hazel Park, Michigan, has manufactured flowmeters for a variety of industries for more than 20 years. The company can be reached at (248) 542-9635 or at www.flowmeters.com.
