The Blancett B1500 Series turbine flowmeter (photo) is designed to perform in harsh environments, providing flow measurements for standard clean, filtered liquid-flow applications in precision industrial processes, such as batching, blending and filling. According to the manufacturer, B1500 Series flowmeters feature exceptional mechanical linearity, which increases the usable flow range and helps mitigate output variance caused by viscosity fluctuations due to changes in fluid temperature. Using a helical rotor design with high-performance ceramic ball bearings, B1500 meters are able to achieve high speed-of-response and minimal pressure drop. Ceramic bearings are also lighter, more tolerant to extreme temperatures and produce less friction than stainless-steel ball bearings, which are commonly found in other turbine meters. B1500 Series meters are available in nominal line sizes from¼ to 2 in., with an accuracy rating of±0.25% of reading. Ideal flow ranges vary between 0.25 and 250 gal/min, depending on line size. — Badger Meter, Inc., Milwaukee, Wis.
