FlowUnit™/FLC200

FlowUnit™/FLC200

Product info

FlowUnit/FLC200 was developed specifically to monitor the amount of seal water used in rotating shaft seals in the pulp and paper industries. It is possible to tell the condition of the seal from one glance.

The sealing of rotating shafts is a significant cost factor in process industries. For this reason it is not irrelevant how sealing water flows and how it is monitored. Unnecessary seal water results in excess raw and wastewater usage. Through controlling seal water amounts it is possible to decrease the costs incurred through reduced water demand and wastewater loads. FlowUnit seal water control unit is an invaluable tool for dealing with these unnecessary costs.

Models:

FCQ – For pressuless seals; Quench seals.

FC – For packings and single mechanical seals.

FCP – For double mechanical seals.

8035 – Maintenance free digital flow meter for controlling seal water of vacuum pumps.

Maintenance free digital flow meter for controlling seal water of vacuum pumps

The new model of FlowUnit is a blockless and maintenance free digital flow meter for e.g. seal water control of NASH pumps and other objects where a greater flow of 60-700 l/min is necessary. The meter is a paddle-wheel flow transmitter for continuous flow measurement and control that is specially designed for use in neutral and solid-free water (e. g. seal water). Due to its simple construction the flow meter has no obstructive measuring components or parts whose maintenance would be difficult. During the engineer process we took the traditional kinds of float meters into consideration and created the FlowUnit that can easily replace the operation of traditional flow meters with a completely new construction and operation without requiring significant alterations to anything else.

A fitting system (all international threaded port connections) designed by Flow Control ensures a simple installation into all seal water pipe systems from DN 15 to DN 50 and PN 16.

The digital display and menu-guided operating elements allow a customised adjustment of all measuring parameters. The display is easy to program for different needs.

Strengths and opportunities for new FlowUnit are:

  • Easy and quick to install and change blocked and dirty flow meters

  • The standard length of flowmeter is only 375 mm

  • Multi-language display

  • Customised measuring units

  • Teaching and simulation modes

  • A wide range of alarm alternatives
