Something Fishy About Those Flowmeters

Mar 21 2018 Read 872 Times

The owner of an Oxfordshire fish market contacted Bell Flow Systems looking for a suitable meter to use for their daily wash down procedure. To calculate water consumption, they had previously used a traditional mechanical turbine flow meter to measure the run-off water after the market had been hosed down at the end of the day. However, this method did not work very well for long term application, as the turbine blades became jammed due to debris in the dirty water. Subsequently, the turbine would not spin, and as a result, the water flow was not accurately measured. This situation could often go unnoticed for long periods of time. The problem was only noticed when the meter was checked and removed from line for cleaning.
