Flowmeters for water, chemicals and corrosives

Universal Flow Monitors announces seven new Battery-Powered CoolPoint Vortex Shedding flowmeters for water, chemicals and corrosives. Designed for situations where there is no power located nearby or in which it would be cost prohibitive to wire the monitoring station, the Battery-Powered CoolPoint runs on 3 AA alkaline batteries or lithium batteries. The expected battery life is six months with the alkaline batteries or two years with lithium.

Flowmeters for water in separators and pump seal flush

CoolPoint To-talizing Series vortex shedding flowmeters can control the total water in an oil and gas industry application such as separators and pump seal flush. CoolPoint flowmeters with a totalizer are offered in 3/4-inch to two-inch pipe sizes for flows ranging from 25 to 200 gpm (95 to 750 lpm). The totalizer features a six-digit LED display, pulse output and push-button selection for gpm or lpm. Users can toggle between running and resettable totals. The flowmeter is an electronic instrument with no moving parts to stick or clog, enabling it to process water containing particles.

Vortex shedding flowmeters

CoolPoint vortex shedding flow-meters offer flow consistency and reliability in measuring and monitoring water discharge from separators, including natural gas well applications. In pump seal flush systems, Cool-Point provides the consistent flow needed to cool and lubricate the pump seal. Offered in pipe sizes from 1/4 inch to four inches, these meters transmit flow rates from 0.4 gpm to 600 gpm. CoolPoint can monitor water that may contain particles because there are no moving parts to stick or coat, eliminating potential for clogging. Other CoolPoint features include pulse outputs, LED digital display and user-configurable alarm set points.

Vane-style flowmeters

Universal vane-style flowmeters offer flow consistency, reliability and low maintenance in measuring and monitoring water, light hydrocarbon condensates, glycol and other fluids. Universal meters are calibrated with the viscosity specified by the customer. They can be used when local flow indication and mechanical flow switching, without or without an optional pot-driven 4-20 mA transmitter, are desired. The meters provide flow indication to assist in problem diagnosis and respond immediately if flow goes too low. They can be used to monitor water and hydrocarbon condensate discharges from oil and gas separators, control glycol flow in contactor operations, and cool and lubricate the pump seal in seal flush systems. Meter bodies, internal moving parts and seals are made of materials to fit the application.
