DOT Turbine Wheel Flowmeter/Monitor

Brand: KOBOLD Instruments, Inc.

The KOBOLD turbine flow meter Model DOT consists of a helically shaped turbine rotor supported in two tungsten carbide bearings, the rotor being solid ferritic stainless steel of a grade compatible with the metered liquid, all contained within a housing of non-magnetic stainless steel.

A pick off coil having a permanent magnet core is mounted in the housing adjacent to the rotor blade tips such that a magnetic circuit is set up via the rotor blades.

Rotation of the rotor varies the reluctance of this magnetic circuit and the flux changes induce a small voltage in the coil, the frequency of which is directly proportional to the rotor speed and therefore proportional to the volumetric flow rate.

The effects of increasing viscosity reduce the linear flow range and shifts the k-factor. Further, the effect of viscosity depends on the frequency (RPM of rotors). Therefore, smaller the meter, higher is the effect of viscosity on the linearity curve.
