Use Clean water flows: Props can measure
liquids with up to 5% suspended solids at temperatures up to
or unavailable power: Does not require power to operate. Wide
size range: Available in sizes up to 72". Accuracy: Fairly good at ±2%
Meters have a blade which rotates as the flow passes. These
rotations are interpreted as flow by a totalizer usually mounted
on the meter. Propeller meters do not require a power source to
totalize flow. When equipped, the propeller meter can send an
output signal (requiring an external power supply) to a remote
propeller meter is a low cost, low maintenance meter.

Where to use
High percentage of solids
slurries, minerals, paper, sewage - flows with high levels of
solids which cannot be measured other types of meters. Obstructionless
projects into the flow stream, no head loss, no parts to
caustics and corrosive chemical additives are isolated from the
meter by inert linings and electrodes. Conductive
Liquids where conductivity is at sufficient levels to induce
Magnetic flowmeters are based on Faraday's Law of Magnetic
Induction. In a magnetic flowmeter, the liquid acts as a
conductor as it flows through the pipe. This induces a voltage
which is proportional to the average flow velocity - the faster
the flow rate, the higher the voltage. This voltage is picked up
by sensing electrodes mounted in the meter tube and sent to the
transmitter which takes the voltage and calculates the flow rate
based on the cross sectional area of the meter tube.
Sludge, slurry, soup or
salsa - there is a Sparling magmeter to fit your application.
Sparling Magmeters come with a two-year warranty and offer a wide
selection of meter sizes, liners and electrode materials to suit
your application. to learn more about Sparling Mags including the
