Juice concentrate (without solids) flow rate can be measures by turbine flow meter.
Turbine flowmeter is a kind of metering instrument that can measure a variety of liquid with good stability and high accuracy. It is especially suitable for measuring low viscosity liquid, such as water, concentrates juice, milk, diesel, editable oil, alcohol .,etc
Turbine flowmeters are velocity flowmeters, which have the advantages of high measurement accuracy, good repeatability and stability, and are widely used in food, petroleum, chemical, electric power and other fields, and are used in trade measurement.
How the turbine flow meter for juice works?
When the juice flows through the turbine flow sensor installed in the pipeline, the turbine rotates around the axis due to the impact of the juice. At the same time, the number of revolutions of the turbine rotates and the juice volume flow presents an approximate linear relationship. Then, the rotation of the turbine is transformed into a corresponding electrical pulse signal through a magneto-electric converter, and after this pulse signal is amplified by an electronic amplifying mechanism, turbine flow converter can be sent to indicate the juice flow information.
The main features of the flowmeter:
small size; light weight; high accuracy (0.5-1.0%); fast response time (it may need a few seconds to get juice flow rate reading); wide range ratio (usually 10:1 ); small pressure loss; suitable for high temperature of working fluid; output is pulse or current, RS485 ,MODBUS turbine flow transmitters is suitable for long-distance signal transmission, which is convenient for various parameter processing. When it is used in combination with a multi-function and multi-parameter digital display, it can measure, analyze and adjust parameters such as totalized flow, instantaneous flow.

Other juice flow meters
For juices without solid particles and sediments, cheap and affable turbine flow meters can obtain accurate and rapid measurements; in fact, many factories produce juices with sediments, pulp, such as pineapple juice (contain sediment), concentrate pineapple juice, fruit juice, black Ginger Juice, Mixed Juice, Juice with high Brix.,etc In this case, we can choose juice flow meters according to the budget and measurement accuracy and functions. Electromagnetic flowmeter or Coriolis mass flowmeter can also obtain good juice measurement result.
