Flow Measurement & Control


Wedge flowmeter

June 2018 Flow Measurement & Control

The model FLC-WG wedge flowmeter consists of a pipe inside which a V-shaped wedge is fitted. Through this constriction, a differential pressure is generated which is dependent upon the volume flow.

For very high and very low Reynolds numbers

Due to its design, the wedge flowmeter is suitable for nearly all types of flow, especially for media with a very low Reynolds number of 300 up to very high Reynolds numbers of several million. As a result, the wedge flowmeter is very well suited for the measurement of slurries and highly viscous media such as wastewater, sewage sludge, tar sand and cement, as well as gases and vapours.

Low maintenance through robust design

The design of the wedge flowmeter is extremely robust against particle-laden, erosive and abrasive media.

Bi-directional measurement for a variety of flow rates

The constructional design of the wedge flowmeter enables bi-directional measurement, which differentiates it from other flowmeters. As standard, there are four different H/D ratios to select in order to cover a multitude of flow rates.
