Description

Our VS gear flow meter offer unbeatable performance, linearity and resolution for most accurate measurement of clear, viscous liquids according to the gearwheel principle.

A gearwheel pair adapted with precision into the housing forms the measuring unit. The rotation of the measuring unit is recorded contact-free by a signal pick-up system and converted into digital pulses.

The VS can be used to measure all pumping liquids which have a certain lubrication capacity, e.g. petrol, (low flammable) mineral oils, paints, greases, resins, and much more.

The flow meters are available in grey cast iron and stainless-steel.

VS positive displacement flow meters are volume rate measuring sensors based on the meshing gear principle and are designed for use with liquids. Two precisely matched gear wheels are enclosed in a very accurately machined housing. Gear rotation is sensed by a non-contacting signal pick-up system. Each tooth produces one impulse.
