Kobold’s flowmeters for very low flow

June 2018 Flow Measurement & Control

Kobold Instrumentation has introduced its model KSV flowmeters and switches for very low flows with and without control valves, allowing even the lowest possible liquid or gas flow rates to 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 economical measuring system. The optional needle valve allows control and the device has been designed for panel mounting.

Kobold’s KSV flowmeters are acid and caustic proof as they are made of polycarbonate and brass or polysulfone and stainless steel materials. They are highly suited for advanced applications in medical technology because the units are easily sterilised and operate at 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.

They are shock resistant, lightweight and easy to install in a variety of available measuring ranges with an accuracy of 6% full scale.
