If you are in the business of processing
palm oil and other such fluids (or you just need to measure fluids) you've come
to the right place!
Here at Silver Automation Instruments Supply we understand
your needs and we supply good, quality mechanical and electronic type
flow meters at low prices (so you don't have to break the bank). Because palm
oil is edible, we know that it's important that
the edible oil flow meters be made from
stainless steel material, and that the creation process should meet all
required sanitary and hygienic
standards (and rest assured that they do).

Our palm oil flow meters devices give a
pulse output of 4~20mA.
We most commonly use liquid turbine flow
meters (TUF flow meter), oval gear flow meters, and Coriolis flow meters to
measure the palm
oil or crude palm oil flow rates. Let's explore these options:
Turbine flow meters to measure Palm Olein
Turbine flow meters
are an economical
solution with choices of either a simple pulse output or a display to show you
instant flow rate.
These flow meters are available as battery operated or can
have a 24V DC power supply. These palm oil flow transmitters are quite
used for volumetric oil flow measurements. The turbine flow meter is the most
popular choice because it is versatile,
easy to maintain, and very durable,
with a wide range of application uses. These flow instruments work by using
to create a pinwheel in the flow stream. Blades located on a
rotor are on an angle and transform energy from the stream into rotational
energy, and as the fluid moves faster, the rotor also spins faster. These
rotations are either sensed magnetically by the movement of the
blades, or they
can be detected mechanically by using externally located sensors, which pick up
on the amount of pulses generated as the fluid moves.
Oval gear flow meter for palm oil flow measurement
Oval gear flow meters are stainless steel
and thus can be heavy. They do cost a little bit more than other types of meters
though they are worth it.
These meters are in-line type positive
displacement flow meters and can be used as either a mechanical palm oil flow meter
without any power supply, or they can be equipped with a flow transmitter which
gives them a pulse rate of 4~20mA output. These oil
flow meters are made with
oval-shaped gears inside that rotate. Fluid pressure causes them to rotate and
trap a pocket of fluid between
the gear and it's outer housing, which then
empties into the down-stream flow. There are magnets embedded in the rotors
actuate a reed switch or provide a pulse output as they rotate. Each
pocket holds a precise amount of volume and measurements are
counting the frequency of
Coreolis flow meters are direct mass flow
meters and they are able to measure density, fluid temperature, and mass flow
rate. They feature
one sensor with a high accuracy reading of 0.1%-0.2%. These
meters can be used for many, many different things such as oil, water, gas,
waste-water, chemical, life sciences, power, and food. They are also dual
purpose in that they can measure temperature in addition to density.
cool feature of these meters is that they can measure the mass flow directly.
These devices work by using motion mechanics.
Essentially, the fluid you are
measuring moves through a vibrating tube which forces the fluid to accelerate
as it heads towards the point of
peak amplitude vibration. Decelerating fluid
then moves away from the point of peak amplitude and exits the tube, which then
twists the tube
as it traverses each vibration cycle. These types of mass flow meters
will provide you with the most accurate method of measurement because
unaffected by changing fluid characteristics such as viscosity, temperature,
pressure, gravity, and conductivity.
