Hoffer Flow Controls presents the Lo-Co Series of low cost turbine flowmeters for customers working with a limited budget, a line that is a perfect fit for liquid utility and OEM applications. The Lo-Co Series provides you with the most economical flow solution while its outstanding features such as ALL stainless steel construction and precision machined components speak for themselves. The Lo-Co Series is available in nine line sizes and may be interfaced with our complete line of electronics including signal conditioners, converters, rate indicators/totalizers and flow computers.
Fluid entering the Hoffer turbine flowmeter passes through an inlet flow straightener which reduces the fluid’s turbulent flow pattern and improves the velocity profile. The fluid engages a vaned rotor causing it to rotate at an angular velocity proportional to flow rate. The pickup coil senses thespinning motion of the rotor through the housing and converts it into a pulsing electrical signal. Summation of this signal relates directly to the total flow, while the frequency is linearly related to flow rate.
