Item #DPT-1212HC34PLT, Target-Type Flow Sensor - DPT-C Series - Kobold
The KOBOLD DPT Series target-type flowmeter uses a unique, patented target system to measure the flow of liquids. This design uses a single leaf-spring both to suspend the target and to provide the target resetting force. The use of a single leaf spring is a simple, reliable design that allows for the operation of the flowmeter with virtually no wear. The target-type measuring system offers a very low head loss and is generally immune to problems caused by fluids with high solids content.
The mechanism consists of a target plate (1) and lever arm (2). The fluid flow causes the target plate and lever arm to deflect against the leaf spring. A permanent magnet (3) attached to the lever arm and Hall effect sensor (4) mounted inside the display unit translate the angular motion of the target to an electrical signal. The signal from the Hall effect sensor is used by the electronic indicators to provide a flowrate display, adjustable setpoint switches, or an analog flow signal.
