The IP80 Series are impeller-type insertion meters designed for use in pipe sizes 1/2" to 8". High-quality jewel bearings and nickel-bound tungsten carbide shaft are used for maximum life and extremely low friction. Bodies are machined from solid rod for maximum precision. Low-flow performance is superior. The rotation of the rotor is detected by a zero-drag Hall-effect sensor. Output is a pulse-type square wave, which can be sent long distances (up to 2,000 feet) without a transmitter. This signal can be connected directly to Clark data logger and control modules, as well as PLC's, counters, and computer cards.
IP meters are ideal for chemical proportioning applications. For rate and total display, as well as pump pacing, the FT415/420 flow indicator can be mounted directly on the IP80 Series, or remotely on a wall or panel. If display is not required for pump pacing, pulse divider PD10 provides adjustable pump pacing.
The IP80 Series come with special fittings, ensuring correct depth placement in the pipe. Fittings are available in PVC, brass, and stainless steel. Sensors are available in brass, 316 stainless steel, PVC, and polypropylene. In plastic pipe 3"- 8", use an IP82 sensor, which is 1.00" longer than the IP81 to accommodate the larger fittings.
