Water flow sensor

‎Definition and function of water flow sensor‎

‎ ‎‎Water flow sensor‎‎ ‎‎ is a flow sensor that is use to detect water flow. Be it a flow that has a certain pressure, water flow with very little pressure and minimal flow speed or for the flow of water in the open such as in ditches, rivers or irrigation canals. Water flow sensor is also many who call it a water meter, water flow meter or water flow meter.‎

‎ ‎‎Water flow sensor‎‎ ‎‎ for this water has several types according to the function and purpose of installation. For industrial applications ‎‎flow sensors for water‎‎ can be used as a switch, to monitor the absence of a flow in a closed piping system.‎

‎ ‎‎Water flow sensor‎‎ ‎‎ there is also used to monitor the characteristics of water flow, to find out the amount of flow capacity in the closed piping system in order to maintain engine performance, know the quality of the pump and so on. Because the type and capacity of the flow sensor will be related to ‎‎the price of the flowmeter‎‎ or flow sesnsor itself.‎

‎To maintain engine performance on the water cooling system, ‎‎the flow sensor‎‎ can be used as a switch, to provide a signal in the form of both alarm and contact (NO / NC). The purpose of this signal is for the process to stop because the water flow system that serves to cool the engine does not go way or outside the specified standards. If the‎‎ flow sensor‎‎ does not function properly can cause over heat from the engine that can result in engine damage.‎

‎In addition to the above functions, this‎‎ ‎‎ water flow sensor‎‎ ‎‎ can also be applied to calculate the amount of water that has flowed, in order to maintain the consistency of the quality of the mixing and stirring process of different types of liquids such as many used in the food and beverage industry.‎

‎Because it serves as a sensor, the operation uses a lot of electric, can use AC electric power or DC or Battery electric power. This use of electricity is adjusted to the available electrical power and other components that have to do with the purpose of installing ‎‎water flow ‎‎meters.‎

‎For certain ‎‎purposes the water flow sensor‎‎ can also provide an analog output of 4-20 mA, pulse, or alarm. And if you want to connect with the communication system is also available RS232 or RS485. All out put from the flow sensor for this water can basically be custom according to our wishes.‎

Choosing the Type of Flow Meter

Material Water Flow Sensor

‎Materials from ‎‎water flow sensors‎‎ are also variously made from nonmetallic materials such as PVC, PDFE, or polypropilyn and some are made of brass, stainless steel and ultrasonic even for highly corrosive chemicals there are also made from tantalum, and for materials that are very abrasiv can also be made from titanium materials. The more expensive the flow tube material, it can be ascertained that the price of ‎‎flow meters‎‎ is more expensive, therefore this type of flow tube material is really noticed and adjusted to the characteristics of the fluid measured to avoid too much flow meter investment.‎

‎The above parameters are general conditions when we determine the selection‎‎ of the type of water flow sensor‎‎ that we will buy and to be more precise should contact the seller of the water flow sensor and convey all specifications and purposes of installing the water sensor. This is none other than so that we can get a more precise water flow sensor and in accordance with the specifications we want and can get the price of a ‎‎flowmeter‎‎ that suits the needs with maximum benefits.‎

‎Water flow sensor function.‎

‎From the description above ‎‎ ‎‎ ‎‎flow sensor‎‎ ‎‎ ‎‎ has a function to:‎

  • ‎Knowing the Velocity of Velocity by units of distance/ time‎
    • ‎Unit of measurement: (meter/minute, meters/second etc.‎
  • ‎Knowing the Flow Rate in the pipe‎
    • ‎Unit of measurement: (LPS, LPM, LPH, M3/H, M3/Minute, GPM, GPH etc.‎
  • ‎Know the Total Volume That Has Flowed (Totalizer)‎
    • ‎Unit Units: m3, liters, gallon etc.‎
  • ‎Control or monitor with an output in the form of analog out put: 4-20mA, pulse, RS485, relay contact and others.‎

‎Therefore, when determining the ‎‎ ‎‎type of flow sensor water‎‎ ‎‎should be given adequate information, about the type of liquid and system characteristics such as the amount of pressure in the system, the magnitude of the temperature of the liquid and the chemical characteristics of running water, including the solid content if indeed the water to be measured there is a solid content and acidity level.‎

‎Price of Water Flow sensor‎

‎How expensive the flow meter price may be the following link can be used as a basic reference and remember only for reference is not a real time price:‎


 ‎Here are the models and types of flow sensors that are widely used in industries such as: ‎

Flow Meter Portable

  • ‎Portable flow meters began to be famous when the known flow meter type ultrasonic where the way of use and installation is quite easy and fast and can be below where.‎
  • ‎Portable flowmeter uses a type of clamp on flow meter where the sensor or often referred to as ultrasonic transducer is enough in the clamp on the outer surface of the pipe, because the process of insatlation without cutting pipes or perforating pipes then the installation cost of the flow meter clamp on is very cheap and fast.‎
  • ‎For the type of portable flow meter is usually equipped with a vaik data logger internally and externally and for power because of its portable nature usually uses a battery that can be charged and generally the battery is able to work at a long time above 5 hours.‎

Clamp on Ultrasonic Flow Meter

  • ‎Ultrasonic flowmeter‎‎ is a type of flow meter whose way of working to measure the speed of fluid flow using ultrasound so that with the calculation of the volume flowing can be read in ultrasonic transmitters.‎
  • ‎Using ultrasonic sensors or often called transducer ultrasonic flowmeters can measure the average speed of fluid flow in the pipe by measuring the average time difference between signal delivery time and signal reception with flow direction.‎

Flowmeter Mass Flow Coriolis

  • ‎A coriolis flowmeter is a type of flow meter that theoretically calculates the force/force force due to the oscillation of a sensor through which the liquid passes by using coriolis calculations that are converted to a mass flow.‎
  • ‎Coriolis flow meter in real can calculate the mass of the flow so that the temperature change of the flow has little effect. Likewise, the dissolution of flow changes due to installation or other causes that result in the flow is not laminer and trapping air or gas in the flow does not affect accuracy. In contrast to the nature of the flow meter that calculates the volume where the mass flow meter can ignore the weight of the air or gas trapped in the flow.‎

Flow Meter Electromagnetic

  • ‎Electromagnetin flowmeter which is often called magnetic flow meter or magmeter is a type of flow meter that works using faraday law. Because of its working nature like that, magnetic flow meters can only work on liquids that have conductivity at a certain level and generally in the range of at least 20 micro siemens.‎

Flow Meter Open Channel 

  • ‎Open channel flow meters are flow meters that can be applied to measure flow in open channel systems such as canals, rivers or trenches.‎
  • ‎In the watershed flow meter open chanel calculates the speed of flow by considering the height of the surface. For the measurement of flow speed can use transittime flow meter or magnetic flow meter. As for the surface height of the flow using ultrasonic level sensors‎
  • ‎The incorporation of velociti with a cross-sectional area can produce flow capacity or flow rate flow in the canal.‎
