Choosing a flowmeter

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have been interested in getting a flowmeter, and have a few questions:

The King instruments 7520 has an inlet and outlet in 1/4 NPT, does anyone know where to get coverters to G1/4?
Regarding other flowmeters - I see a lot with 1/2 inlets and outlets. If we convert these to 1/4 the reading will be off, right?

I use to use the koolance INS-FM17N with the ADT-FM03 adapter and it has a switch to choose what size tubing you have...

For converting from 1/4'' NPT to G1/4 BSP, here is one source:-

http://www.anver.com/document/vacuum%20components/vacuum%20cups/Fittings/hs14-14m-g!.htm

 

Regarding whether or not the flow rate reading will be off due to a change of inlet/outlet size, I think it depends on the kind of flowmeter.

If it is the rotameter kind (eg King 7520), then it does not matter because the internal float and tapered float tube remain constant.

If it is the Koolance type mentioned above by tippo33, then it does matter.
