Differential pressure flow gauge

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have a coolermaster flow gauge that has a little fan inside. It gets my dye built up on it and my water turns clear and stops spinning. At the steel mill I work at we measure using differential pressure gauges. The ones we use are crazy accurate and extremely sensitive....so you can guess they are expensive as hell. Anyone ever hear of more personal use ones?

Thanks in advance.

These can be quite accurate but need a fair bit of setting up and calibrating to be that accurate.

Interesting product.

fogran, just note that if you are getting dye build up problems you may end up with dye plugging the internal ports for the pressure sensors or building up on the orifice plate. Something to keep in mind if your readings suddenly go a little strange.

Also, I love how they say:
Quote:
Due to the high sensitivity of the integrated pressure sensors, the sensors pose only a minimal flow resistance.

Yeah, the sensors provide minimal flow resistance, however the calibrated orifice plate in the middle...

ya I know it'll create some resistance but I really don’t have a flow issue and if i have a buildup issue it’ll be easier to clean the stupid little fan one I have....

I should probably clarify my previous statement - the pressure sensors provide almost no restriction themselves*, the restriction is caused by the orifice. However the statement on the product page is correct in that the more precise the sensors the larger the orifice can be to provide the same flow measurement accuracy.




* There is a tiny bit due to geometry changes in the pipe wall, but impossible to measure on this scale.
