ML04 flowmeter family from McCrometer

The ML04 Water Specialties propeller flowmeter family from McCrometer is available for line sizes ranging from 2 to 48 in., with corresponding flows from 40 to 35,000 gpm. An optional transmitter can provide 4-20 mA output, to indicate either current flow rate or totalized flow volume for use with a larger control or SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) systems.

Using a versatile flanged-end spool configuration, the ML04 family features measurement accuracy ofvailable.

McCrometer says the Water Specialties products have earned a reputation for accuracy, durability, and effective performance. The rugged construction features injection molded plastic bonnets and a hinged lid with padlock hasp to prevent unauthorized entry. Fabricated steel meter tubes with straightening vanes and fabricated steel meter heads are coated inside and out with NSF approved fusion-bonded epoxy. Long-life ceramic dual thrust bearings handle both forward and reverse flow.

Units can be installed vertically, horizontally or inclined. Meter materials and performance meet or exceed AWWA standard C704-08.
