FT7 Hygienic Turbine Flow Meter

FT7 Hygienic Turbine Flow Meter
Description
The Hosequip range of FT7 hygienic turbine flowmeters are specifically designed for the measurement of liquid flows in the food and pharmaceutical industries.  They provide a highly accurate and economical means of measuring flows of clean liquids. 
 
Come's with Triclamp connect as standard, RJT, ISS or IDF connection also available on request.
Each meter comes complete with a standard signal coil and connector and a calibration certificate. If a display is required for the meter please see our 100 series bettery powered totaliser.

Application 
Flowquip FT7 hygienic turbine flowmeters have been designed for the dairy, beverage, food processing and pharmaceutical industries.  

The liquid food applications include milk products, vegetable oils and vinegar for both 
continuous measurement and batch control. The brewing and soft drinks industries use the flowmeter for keg filling, ratio blending and tanker loading.  

Pharmaceutical processes often require the hygienic qualities of the meter for the accurate flow measurement of salines, proprietary medicines and fine chemicals. The bearings are suitable for low pressure steam sterilisation and chemical in place cleaning.Principle of Operation 

When liquid flows and the rotor turns, the sensor detects the movement of the blade tips and generates pulses.  
The frequency of the pulses is directly proportional to flow rate. 

Construction
The stainless steel construction of the Flowquip FT7 turbines is durable and gives excellent corrosion 
resistance.  The rotor is machined from solid making it virtually indestructible.  The sleeve bearings offer a highly 
reliable performance over long operating periods.  Furthermore, the design minimises bacterial growth inside 
the flowmeter.

Calibration 
All Flowquip FT7 turbines are individually calibrated with water and are traceable to national standards.   A test 
certificate is issued for each meter showing the derived 'K' factor which is used to set secondary instrumentation. 
Instrumentation 

The output signal can be fed to a local display, remote display or converted for transmission to a separate control system.  Flowquip can offer a range of instrumentation to suit your  exact requirements. Installation 
FT7 flowmeters are available with TriClamp, RJT, ISS/IDF or ACME ends.  

For best performance the flowmeter should be installed in a straight section of pipe allowing at least 10 pipe diameters upstream and 5 pipe diameters downstream.  

All control valves should be installed downstream and an upstream filter is recommended to 
prevent ingress of foreign matter.  

Preamplifiers are only needed for installations with very long transmission distances or where the installation is in an electrically or magnetically noisy environment close to pumps, motors, generators, switchgear or heavy current carrying cables.
