 FM-520 User Manual  

Control the discharge of a tank truck with this one-of-a-kind flow meter, directly coupled to the tank, of the remove and put type. No modification of the structure of your tank is necessary. It has a flow conditioner and flow detector that allow to maximize the accuracy and precision of the measurement in the discharge conditions. This instrument is aimed at information management, the download history is recorded detailing the data of each maneuver. The information can be collected with any phone with Android system (optional) or through a PC (optional). In turn, it allows the printing of tickets (optional) for each operation carried out. It has anti-explosive certification for classified areas.

Description of the turbine flowmeter

Turbine flowmeters consist of a vane rotor, this is the only moving part, which rotates due to the flow in the pipe. The rotor design attempts to keep flow disturbance to a minimum, taking as little energy as possible from the moving fluid. The vanes cut the fluid in a helical shape. Each revolution of the rotor, given by the longitudinal advance of the fluid, is translated into a particular volume multiplied by a scale factor of each equipment. The errors in the measurement of this equipment are given by two factors: mechanical traction effects (between the fluid and the meter components) and magnetic traction effects (originating between a pick-up coil and the rotor blades) they are a source of error. In turn, the traction effects vary with the frequency of rotation of the turbine, for this reason they represent a source of non-linearity in the frequency-flow curve of the meter.
