The new clean, flexible and compact Oval Wheel Flow Meter for chemical applications

The new Oval Wheel Flow Meter OVM by ASV Stübbe is a clean, flexible and compact solution for measuring, metering and monitoring viscous fluid flow, particularly for the sensitive areas in chemical and industrial plant manufacture.

What is the new Oval Wheel Flow Meter OVM?

Oval wheel flow meters work according to the displacement principle and are used for the measuring, metering and monitoring of viscous fluid flow.

Oval Wheel Flow Meter 

The Oval Wheel Flow Meter OVM is made up of a measuring chamber housing, with two rotatable oval wheels sporting teeth that intermesh and rotate around and in opposite directions to one another.

With each rotation, the oval wheels convey four (isolated between the oval wheel and the measuring chamber) partial volumes through the meter. In order to take the measurement, the rotation of the oval wheels is transferred, by means of magnets, to pulse tachometers.

It has a compact design and offers a measuring accuracy of 1% irrespective of the flow speed of the fluid, as well as the fluid's density, temperature and viscosity. No inlet or outlet sections are necessary and by connecting the oval wheel flow meter OVM to a SPS it can be used to dose fluids.

With an enclosure of untreated and uncoloured polypropylene (PP-n), a contamination of sensitive components - such as photovoltaic modules or circuit boards - is also negated.

What are the key benefits of the Oval Wheel Flow Meter OVM?

  • Accuracy 1% of measured value.
  • Volume measurement 2-60 l / min.
  • Immediate capacity control for flow rate measurement or basic dosing applications.
  • Flow meter for sensitive areas in chemical and industrial plant manufacturing.
  • High durability and reliability due to robust construction.
  • User friendly, simple installation.
  • Compact design, no inlet and outlet sections are required.
  • High accuracy of measurement independent of flow rate, density, viscosity and temperature.
  • Dosing function through the use of a PLC connection.
  • Excellent for use in applications with high purity fluids due to the usage of natural PP.

What applications would use the Oval Wheel Flow Meter OVM?

The Oval Wheel Flow Meter OVM is a highly accurate flow meter for measuring flow in the sensitive areas in chemical and industrial plant manufacture. The OVM Flow Meter is suitable for dealing with neutral and aggressive fluids free of solid particles.
