F-1200 Insertion Turbine Flow Meter

F-1200 Series
Turbine Flow Meters are suitable for pipe sizes ranging from 2½" to 72". Patented Dual Turbine Meters provide partial compensation for irregular flow conditions caused by inadequate straight pipe runs.

Typical Applications
ONICON F-1200 Series Insertion Type Flow Meters are designed to work in pipe sizes ranging from 2½" to 72" in diameter. The F-1200 series turbine flow meters employ our patented dual turbine technology to deliver highly accurate flow data even when installed in straight pipe runs that are too short to establish a fully developed flow profile. The F-1200 series turbine meters are ideal for central plant applications where short pipe runs are common.

Typical uses for the F-1200 series flow meter include: chilled water, hot water, domestic water, process cooling, steam condensate and brine.

Insertion Flow Meter in PipeStandard Features

Highly Accurate
NIST traceable factory calibration performed on every flow meter, within ±0.5% of reading accuracy at the calibrated (typical) flow velocity and within ±1-2% of reading over a 50:1 flow range. ONICON's price vs. performance is unmatched.

Unequaled Operating Range
Provides repeatable flow data over a 175:1 turndown from 0.17 to 30 ft/s.

Excellent Long-Term Reliability
Patented non-magnetic impedance sensing method, low mass non-metallic turbines with sapphire jewel bearings and tungsten carbide shafts provide a mechanical system that virtually does not wear.

Simplified Hot Tap Insertion Design
Integral hot-tap design is standard for all insertion meters and allows installation and removal without system shutdown. Turbine meters can be removed and reinserted by hand without special tools.

Integral Conditioned Outputs
Electronics enclosure includes integral conditioned output circuitry for ease of installation. Analog output models include both 4-20 mA and 0-10 VDC signals. Isolated-analog, dry contact switch and frequency outputs are also available.
