Flow meters and switches for very slow flows

May 2022 Flow Measurement & Control

Instrotech is offering Kobold model KSV flow meters and switches for very low flow rates, with and without control valves, so even the lowest possible liquid or gas flow rates can be measured. Specifically for liquids or air, the KSV operates on the suspended float principle. The direction of flow is from bottom to top and the installation position is vertical. The indication point is the upper edge of the ball. The device has been designed as a simple and thus economical, measuring system. The optional needle valve allows economical control and the device has been designed for panel-mounting.

Kobold’s KSV flow meters are acid- and caustic-proof, made of polycarbonate and brass, or polysulphone and stainless steel materials. They are highly suited for advanced applications in medical technology because these units are sterilisable and operate in temperatures up to +120°C. They can also be used for a wide range of applications in the analytical instrumentation field, within production and environmental monitoring, as well as in laboratory measurement and monitoring technology.

KSV meters are shock resistant, small (with a panel cut-out of 93 + 0,5 mm x 23 + 0,5 mm), lightweight and simple to install. Available measuring ranges are from 0,25-1,5 l/h up to 10-80 l/h for water and 20-80 Nl/h to 0,5-2,4 Nm3/h for air, with full-scale accuracy within ±6%.
