Webtec hydraulic gear flow meters take the pressure

25 February, 2016

Webtec, the hydraulic measurement and control company, based in Cambridgeshire,

UK, has launched a new range of high-pressure, precision gear flow meters rated up to 150 lpm (40 US gpm) for use on applications as diverse as hydraulic component leak testing, wind turbine lubrication monitoring and offshore diagnostic fault-finding.

The new GF series is designed specifically for the hydraulic and lubrication market, not the process industry, so all products are designed and calibrated for use on oils, or phosphate-esters or water-glycols. Webtec recognised that positive displacement meters, like the new GF series, are often used in such a wide range of industries that the Engineer tasked with specifying them is often baffled by the number of, often irrelevant, options.

High safety factor

Since hydraulic circuits are often prone to regular pressure spikes, Webtec comments that it has ensured the new GF gear flow meters are rated up to 420 bar (6000 psi) maximum operating pressure, and also have a safety factor of over three.

Product selection is made easy as all meters come complete with the transducer prefitted, linearised and pre-programmed, fully traceable certified test results and the option of suitable connecting cables.

The GF series uses an all stainless steel construction and comprises three sizes covering the range 0.1 to 150 lpm (0.03 to 40 US gpm) and offers excellent accuracy of better than 0.5 per cent of the indicated reading with both frequency (Pulse) and mA outputs as standard.
