Kobold’s new low volume variable area flowmeters for liquids and gasses

January 2015 Flow Measurement & Control

Kobold Instrumentation has launched the KFR line of acrylic body flowmeters for liquids and gasses, offering the right balance between low cost, accuracy and range availability.

Bridging the micro and large flow ranges, this flowmeter can provide an effective solution to industrial applications, such as gas analysis and water applications. The KFR operates on a proven suspended float system, i.e. the installation position is vertical and the flow is from bottom to top. It has a one-piece acrylic body with PVC or metal fittings for durability. Large lettering and extra hash marks make the scale clearly visible and take the guesswork out of reading flow. Further enhancing readability, the low flowmeters offer an inherently stable float design, while the larger flowmeters feature a float stabilis-ation mechanism. In the larger flow ranges, the stabilisation mechanism allows a smaller installation footprint at a correspondingly lower price. Most units are offered either with, or without, needle valves.
