Turbine flowmeter is the main variety of impeller-type flow (velocity) meters. It consists of a sensor and a conversion display. The sensor uses a multi-blade rotor to sense the average flow rate of the fluid, thereby deriving the flow or total volume. Turbine flowmeters have been widely used in petroleum, chemical, scientific research, national defense, metering and other fields. YK-LWGY series turbine flowmeter absorbs the advanced technology of domestic and foreign flow meters and is optimized and designed. It has the characteristics of simple structure, light weight, high precision, good reproducibility, sensitive response, easy installation, maintenance and use. It is widely used in measuring closed pipelines. A liquid that is less corrosive and free of impurities such as fibers and particles. At working temperature, liquids with a kinematic viscosity less than 5×10-6m2/s can be used directly, and for liquids with a kinematic viscosity greater than 5×10-6m2/s, the flowmeter can be used after real liquid calibration. If it is matched with a display instrument with special functions, it can also perform quantitative control, over-quantity alarm, etc. It is an ideal instrument for flow measurement and energy saving.



Turbine flow sensor structure (Figure 1), when the measured fluid flows through the sensor, under the action of the fluid, the impeller is rotated by force, and its speed is proportional to the average flow velocity of the pipeline. The rotation of the impeller periodically changes the magnetic field of the magnetoelectric converter. Resistance value, the magnetic flux in the detection coil changes periodically to produce an induced potential with the same rotating frequency, that is, an electric pulse signal, which is amplified by an amplifier and sent to the display instrument for display.

   The flow equation of the turbine flowmeter is:

  Qv = f / K (1)

  Qm = qvρ (2)

   where qv, qm ……respectively volume flow, m3/s, mass flow, kg/s;

f ……The frequency of the output signal of the flowmeter, Hz;

K ……The meter coefficient of the flowmeter, P/m3.

  The relationship curve between the coefficient of the flowmeter and the flow rate (or pipeline Reynolds number) (Figure 2). The meter coefficient can be divided into two sections, namely the linear section and the non-linear section. The linear section is about two-thirds of its working section, and its characteristics are related to the sensor structure size and fluid viscosity. In the non-linear section, the characteristics are greatly affected by bearing friction and fluid viscous resistance. When the flow rate is lower than the lower limit of the sensor flow rate, the meter coefficient changes rapidly with the flow rate, and the pressure loss and the flow rate are approximately squared. When the flow exceeds the upper limit of the flow, attention should be paid to prevent cavitation. The shape of the TUF characteristic curve with similar structure is similar, and it differs only in the level of systematic error.
