Flowmeter range augmented

Litre Meter has expanded its range of metering options with ZHM gear flowmeters from KEM.

KEM meters are employed in a wide range of applications worldwide in the automotive, oil and gas, process engineering, food and beverage and energy sectors. Litre Meter is now able to supply the full KEM range of instruments to its British customers.

The meters feature automated lubrication for reduced maintenance. KEM gear meters offer a linearity of +/- 0.5 per cent of the actual value across a temperature range from -20 to +180°C depending on the meter selected. Flow rates that can be measured range between 0.005 and 100 litres/min and typical viscosity ranges from 0.5 to 25,000 mm2/s. The meters are pressure rated up to a maximum of 1,000 bar.

Gear flow meters are positive displacement meters that work as the substance being measured rotates two gears. The fluid is forced through closed measuring chambers between the gears and the housing. The rotational speed of the gears is proportional to the instantaneous flow rate. Sensors precisely detect the rotational speed through the body of the meter without contact with the fluid.

The KEM product line complements the range of flowmeters built by Litre Meter in its own premises in Buckingham. The company offers a broad range of metering technologies suitable for virtually every liquid, gas or steam measurement application and has particular expertise in measuring low flow rates.

Litre Meter CEO Charles Wemyss said: “Litre Meter’s strength has traditionally been in flowmeters for particularly demanding situations, often with meters almost custom-designed and built for particular applications. KEM ZHM gear technology gives our customers access to a wide range of accurate and robust meters which meet the needs of a many different industry applications.”
