Oval Gear Flow Meter

Positive Displacement Flow Meter

 

Oval Gear Flow Meter is one type of Positive displacement flowmeter .  They operate by repeatedly filling and emptying compartments of a known volume with a liquid. The flowrate is then calculated based on the number of times these compartments are filled and emptied.  Given it’s immunity to the most viscous of fluids, oval gear flow meter is ideally suited for measurement of viscous fluids or those with varying viscosities such as oils, syrups and fuels.

 
Principles:

 

The design of the oval gear flow meter very simple; oval shaped gear-toothed rotors rotate within a chamber of specified geometry. As these rotors turn, they sweep out and trap a very precise volume of fluid between the outer oval shape of the gears and the inner chamber walls with none of the fluid actually passing through the gear teeth .

Advantage

Given it’s immunity to the most viscous of fluids, oval gear meter are  ideally suited for measurement of viscous fluids or those with varying viscosities such as oils, syrups and fuels.  
Ease of installation is another advantage of the oval design. Because no straight pipe runs or flow conditioning are required, oval gear meters can be installed in tight areas where alternate technologies would fail

 

Disadvantages:  Oval-gear meters are generally not recommended for water or water-like fluids, because the increased risk of fluid slippage between the gears and chamber walls. Fluids should be clean and non-corrosive, preferably medium to high viscosity.

About Rudy Wiratama (1073 Articles)
Rudy Winoto adalah pemberian orang dari kota minimalis di ujung timur pulau jawa Banyuwangi. Dengan bekal pendidikan pas-pasan di SD Gitik dan SMP Ndelosor dan SMA Rogojampi serta SMADA Bwi mencoba keberuntungan untuk masuk institut teknik di Surabaya dengan Jurusan Perkapalan di ITS Karena suka pindah-pindah kerja dengan alasan super kelasik " Jenuh " membuat saya nggak bisa berkarier dan memaksa saya untuk merintis usaha dengan bermodalkan super nekat, untung2an dan so'-so'an yaitu wiratama mitra abadi. Dan masih terseok-seok dalam rangka mengibarkan bendera wiratama mitra abadi yang base campnya berlokasi di Kalimalang Bekasi. Namun sedikit intisari perjalanan hidup selama ini menyadarkan akan pentingnya untuk melakukan semua hal dengan sedikit lebih baik dan lebih cepat agar bisa memberikan manfaat yang lebih baik untuk masa depan saya dan keluarga. Harpan tarbesar adalah dengan kesadaran tersebut ( masio wes telat ) bisa menghantarkan bendera wiratama ke generasi selanjutnya.
