The IP100/200-Series are adjustable depth insertion paddle-
wheels that come in brass, PVC or 316 stainless models to fit 3” to 40” pipe. Adapters mate with standard 1-1/2″ (110/210) or 2” (150/250 or PVC110/210) NPT threaded fittings such as saddles and weldolets which may be purchased either locally or from Seametrics.
Ruby bearings and a non-drag Hall-effect sensor give these
meters the widest flow range of any of the paddlewheel
types. A sensor detects the passage of miniature mag-
nets in the six rotor blades. The resulting square-wave
signal can be sent for hundreds of feet over unshielded
cable without a transmitter and connected directly to
many PLC’s and other controls without any additional
If desired, a modular system of electronics can be installed
directly on the flow sensor or mounted remotely. The FT415
(battery powered) or FT420 (loop powered) flow indicator provides digital rate and total display, as well as programmable pulse output; the FT420 also provides a 4-20 mA analog out-put. If a display is not required, the AO55 provides 4-20 mA analog output, and the PD10 provides a programmable pulse for pump pacing.
The “hot-tap” models (IP150/250) can be installed or serviced without shutting down the line by means of a 2” full-port isolation valve that comes with a nipple for installation on the pipe fitting. In most circumstances, no special tool is required.
