Applications :

The CBGN Meters is suitable for flow measurement of Liquids or gaseous products in pipes. It shows the current flow rate in volume or mass per unit in time, and is generally used for Flow Measurement in Dosing, Monitoring, adjusting and control of liquid or gaseous products. The Meters design makes it ideal, for processes under difficult and adverse operating conditions. The devices are available with additional electrical equipment for process monitoring and control
All Metal design based Rotameter versions :

  • CBGN-S : SS 316 (Stainless Steel version)
  • CBGN-P : PTFE ( Teflon lined version )
  • CGBN-H : Hastalloy C version
  • CBGN-T : Titanium MOC version

Measuring Principle :

The measuring Element consists of a sharp-edged measuring ring (1) and a conical float (2). A medium flows from the bottom to the top, through the measuring ring, lifting the float until the buoyancy force (A) and the weight of the float (Gs) establish equilibrium. As the height of the float varies, an annular clearance (S) proportional to the flow (Q) appears between the float and the measuring ring. The height of the float in the measuring ring is a measure of the flow (Q). The permanent magnet (3) embedded in the float then transmits this measure to the scale and the optional electronics evaluators through the magnet tracking indicator system (4).
