Flow meters

The oil flow for each lubrication point is measured and adjusted by flow meters. Measuring principles are variable orifice (float and cone), turbine type or gear-type flow meters.

Flow meters are mainly inserted into the oil circulating lubrication systems of paper machines or other heavy machines. Flowmeters are reliable, flexible and easy to maintain. The flowmeters divide oil flow from the main pipe to the lubrication points and shut off the individual pipes if necessary.

The oil flow is monitored by means of a combination of visual and electrical controls.
