The Lake Monitors FlowStat sensors are available with either a stainless steel or polypropylene body, depending on your flow monitoring needs. Both units feature an accuracy of ±2% of full-scale and a repeatability of ±0.5% of full-scale. For additional compatibility, the Lake Monitors FlowStat sensors offer 4-20 mA, 0-5 VDC, pulse or relay outputs.
Regardless of port size, the Lake Monitors FlowStat sensors with stainless steel bodies have a 10:1 turn down ratio and temperature range of 20-225°F (-7 to 107°C).
The ES version of the Lake Monitors FlowStat sensors feature a durable polypropylene body for cost savings and compatibility with a variety of fluids. The ES sensor still offers a flow measuring accuracy of ±2% of full scale, and is capable of handing pressures up to 150 PSIG and temperatures up to 150°F.
This product can be used in the following applications:
The Background: Our customer manufactures a range of multi-stage pumps designed for dewatering mines. They require a simple pulse meter to be used in a pump prototype they are currently developing
The Problem: Striking a balance between cost and performance will be critical. Even though the pump is capable of producing pressures up to 450psi, since it is only a prototype, the customer wants to keep the cost as low as possible.
The Solution: We recommended a Lake Monitors FlowStat flow sensor. With an all stainless steel body and cover options selected, the FlowStat provides a pulse output for simple water flows up to 500 PSIG.
