LB–Portable Liquid Flow Meters

Multivariate liquid flow measurement, anywhere you need it

Alicat’s portable liquid flow meter makes validation or calibration easier by reducing the downtime and disruption to your process. Instant-on and real-time readings for  flow rate, line pressure and line temperature let you get in and out quickly. Add an optional totalizer to track cumulative flow over time.

  • Accurate. Calibrate 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.
  • Tough. LB series portable liquid flow meters are designed to be carried and can withstand drops if they should occur.

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 

  • Standard liquid flow meter without battery (L)
  • Corrosive liquids (LBS, see below)

Corrosive Liquids (LBS series)

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