PVC Flow Meters for Water and Corrosive Applications

PVC Flow MetersPolyvinyl chloride (PVC) is the world's third-most widely produced synthetic plastic polymer and is chemically resistant to acids, salts, bases, fats, and alcohols.

Orange Research manufactures a line of PVC flow meters and PVC switches for water and corrosive liquids applications with wetted parts of PVC and Teflon. They’re perfect for difficult environments where aluminum, stainless steel or brass is not appropriate.

Their models 2221 and 2321 variable area PVC flow meters handle flow ranges from 0-1 to 0-10 GPM. The PVC bodies handle up to 200 psi pressures. Alternatively, metal pressure bodies with PVC and Teflon wetted parts are available and can handle up to 3000 psi line pressures.

These flow meters also include dials made from durable ABS plastic and offer switches (to alert users of alarm conditions) as a standard option. Transmitters are also available upon request. Accuracy is 2% F.S. and each unit is calibrated to NIST standards.
