We often use vortex flow meters, turbine flow meters to measure feed water volumetric flow rate. Because boiler water is at high temperature, while vortex flow meter and turbine flow meter can bear the high temperature boiler water.
Feed water is vital for boiler procedure, because boiler water is heated to vapor and spread inside the whole steam, it should be condensate water. As the water pass around the boiler, and the untreated water could harm the whole boiler system with the chemical properties, the feed water should be with low alkalinity, low conductivity.
Turbine flowmeter is a type of speed flow meter. It has the advantages of high accuracy, good repeatability, simple structure, high pressure resistance, wide measurement range, small size, light weight, small pressure loss, long life, simple operation, and convenient maintenance. It is used to measure the volume flow and accumulation of low viscosity, non-corrosive, clean liquid in closed pipelines, and it is also perfect choice for feed water flow measurement. Turbine flowmeter is the main type of speed type flowmeter. When the measured fluid flows through the turbine flowmeter sensor, the impeller is forced to rotate under the action of the fluid, and its speed is directly proportional to the average flow velocity of the pipeline.
Differential pressure flow meter such as
orifice plate flow meter, V-cone flow meter, and balanced flow meter also a
choice for boiler feed water flow measurement solutions.
