Parker Fluid Control Division’s new line of Vortex Shedding Flowmeters is designed for applications using water, water/glycol coolant and other low-viscosity fluids. They monitor the flow of cooling fluid for resistance welders, slurry pump seal water, machine coolant and steam boiler feed water. Additionally, the flowmeters can be used for cooling water to furnace walls and inductors in steel mills; cooling boiler feed pumps and turbine bearing cooling in power generation plants; as well as for rubber, mining, municipal wastewater treatment, and water addition in chemical and process applications. The flowmeters feature four to 20 mA flow rate transmitters and are designed to withstand working pressures from 10 to 300 PSIG. They are also designed to operate at fluid and ambient temperatures from 1.7 to 65 degrees C. The flowmeters require 10 to 30 VDC at 80 mA input power.
