Universal Flow Monitors Offers CoolPoint Mobile™ Totalizing Flowmeters for Water-Add On Concrete Trucks
Sep 01, 2013 - Hazel Park, MI
Universal Flow Monitors, Inc. CoolPoint Mobile™ flowmeters are being use on trucks of mobile batch plant suppliers. Universal Flow Monitors designed these meters for accuracy, reliability and durability in monitoring and totalizing water-add to mobile batch plants.
CoolPoint Mobile™ vortex shedding flowmeters are electronic meters that have no moving parts to stick or coat. They use a bluff body obstruction to produce vortices, and an electronic transducer measures these oscillations to provide a signal proportional to flow rate. Increasing flow increases the frequency of oscillation. These non-mechanical flowmeters are designed to prevent particulate blockage and typical concrete truck flowmeter problems such as compressed air over-ranging, acid wash, and meter hang-up caused by entrained dirt. They are also impervious to blasts of compressed air, unlike paddle wheel meters.
The flow totalizer available on CoolPoint Mobile™ flowmeters enables the truck operator to control the total amount of water added to the batch. Flow accuracy of CoolPoint Mobile™ is +/-1 1/2 percent of indicated total. This flow accuracy and control help achieve the correct water content for optimal batch quality and strength.
CoolPoint Mobile™ flowmeters have a 1-inch pipe connection and accommodate maximum flows of 50 GPM (190 LPM). Maximum operating pressure is 300 PSI (20 Bar), and turndown is 10:1.
Universal Flow Monitors offers CoolPoint Mobile™ with a flow body of either brass or polysulfone. PVDF sensors and Viton® seals are standard. The flowmeters feature a bolt-on design for easy mounting on a concrete truck. Several flow display and electrical connector positions are available.
Electrical wiring is simplified by use of a pin connector that is standard with CoolPoint Mobile™ flowmeters. Pulse or 4-20 mA rate output is available.
Universal Flow Monitors, Inc., located in Hazel Park, Michigan, has manufactured flowmeters for a variety of industries for more than 30 years. The company can be reached at (248) 542-9635, at www.flowmeters.com or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
