L–Liquid Flow Meters

Multivariate liquid flow measurement in real time

Measure flow rate, line pressure and line temperature simultaneously, all in real time. Add an optional totalizer to track cumulative flow over time.

  • Accurate. Measure water flow rates with NIST-traceable accuracy down to 1/50th of full scale. Alternate calibrations are available for methanol, iso-propanol, ethanol, ammonia, dimethylether, iso-pentane, thiophene, iso-octane and heptane.
  • Easy to Use. As soon as you turn on the flow meter, it’s ready to display live flow, pressure and temperature readings in your choice of engineering units.
  • Connected. Alicat liquid flow meters feature dual digital and analog communications by default and can be ordered with Ethernet/IP, EtherCAT, DeviceNet, Profibus or Modbus (RTU and TCP/IP) communications for easy integration into your digital industrial or laboratory network.

Performance

  • Available ranges: max 0-10 lpm, min 0-0.5 ccm (see Part Numbers for stock ranges)
  • Turndown ratio: 50:1
  • Calibration accuracy, NIST-traceable: ± 2% of the full-scale range
  • Repeatability: ± 2% of the full-scale range
  • Typical measurement response time constant: 20ms
  • No warm-up time required

Operating Conditions

  • Default calibration: water
  • Alternate calibrations (must be requested at time of order): methanol, iso-propanol, ethanol, ammonia, dimethylether, iso-pentane, thiophene, iso-octane, heptane
  • Operating temperature: -10°C (non-freezing) to +60°C
  • Max internal pressure (static): 100 psig (115 psia)
  • Proof pressure: 200 psig (215 psia)

Model Variations 

  • Portable with rechargeable battery (LB)
  • Corrosive liquids (LS, see below)

Corrosive Liquids (LS series)

Instruments in the standard L series are also available with an optional “S” configuration (LS) for use with corrosive liquids. In this configuration, we upgrade the flow body 316L stainless steel and the elastomers to FFKM.

Build Options

  • Communications protocols (analog, RS-232, RS-485, DeviceNet, EtherCAT, Ethernet/IP, Modbus RTU or TCP/IP, PROFIBUS)
  • Displays (monochrome or color, integrated or panel-mount)
  • Process connections (NPT, SAE, AN, BSPP/G, welded compression or VCR/VCO fittings)
  • Elastomers (Viton, FFKM, EPDM, Silicone)

Liquid Flow Characterization

Characterize the flow rate of water through a pump, or of saline fluid through medical tubing. The optional flow totalizer makes it easy to quantify the total volume of liquid that has flowed during the test.
