Flowmeter setup

Is there a good tutorial anywhere for how to setup a turbine type flowmeter with universal viscosity curve?

Dear Michael,


I apologize for delay. Unfortunately, we don't have any tutorial representing flow meter setup. Flow meters generally output voltage or current range that represents the flow rate. For example, a flow control that had a range 0-100 litre/minute the output would be 0-5 V. So 50 L/minute the output would be 2.5 V. In this case you'd setup these sensors as a simple voltage sensor. The same as you would any other simple sensor.


Most seem to be what call flow counters, so they have a pulsed or frequency output. Each pulse might equate to, say, 50 ml. So for each pulse you count 50 ml. You can also measure this count over a time period and calculate the flow rate.


I'm not sure what the significance of the viscosity curve is in connection with flow meter. At this point you should tell me more about your application.


Best regards

It's spoken about more in this case study I got from you guys. Viscosity is important when using turbine type flowmeters.
