FB-1200 Series FB-1200 Series Bi-directional Dual Turbine Flow Meters are suitable for pipe sizes ranging from 2½ to 72 inches. Bi-directional Dual Turbine Meters accurately measure flow in both directions and provide an isolated contact closure output to indicate flow direction.
Highly Accurate NIST traceable factory calibration performed on every meter, within ±0.5% of reading accuracy at the calibrated (typical) flow velocity and within ±1-2% of reading over a 50:1 flow range. ONICON's price vs. performance is unmatched.
Unequaled Operating Range Provides repeatable flow data over a 175:1 turndown from 0.17 to 30 ft/s.
Excellent Long-Term Reliability Patented non-magnetic impedance sensing method, low mass non-metallic turbines with sapphire jewel bearings and tungsten carbide shafts provide a mechanical system that virtually does not wear.
Simplified Hot Tap Insertion Design Integral HOT-TAP design is standard for all insertion meters and allows installation and removal without system shutdown. Meters can be removed and reinserted by hand without special tools.
Integral Conditioned Outputs Electronics enclosure includes integral conditioned output circuitry for ease of installation. Analog output models include both 4-20 mA and 0-10 VDC signals. Isolated-analog, dry contact switch and frequency outputs are also available.
Typical Applications ONICON FB-1200 Series Bi-directional Insertion type flow meters are designed to work in pipe sizes ranging from 2½ to 72 inches in diameter.
The FB-1200 Series Bi-directional Flow Meters, with their build-in flow direction switch, are ideal for primary/secondary decoupled (bypass) loops, stratified thermal storage tanks and municipal water storage tank charge/discharge lines.
