Simple to install with time-honored reliable
performance, Model 515 Rotor-X paddlewheel flow sensors
are highly repeatable, rugged sensors that offer
exceptional value with little or no maintenance. The
output signal of the Model 515 is a sinusoidal frequency
capable of driving a self-powered flowmeter (Model
5090). The wide dynamic flow range of 0.3 to 6m/s (1 to
20 ft/s) allows the sensor to measure liquid flow rates
in full pipes and can be used in low pressure systems.
The Model 515 sensors are offered in a variety of
materials for a wide range of pipe sizes and insertion
configurations. The many material choices include PP,
PVDF, and Tefzel make this model highly versatile and
chemically compatible to many liquid process solutions.
Sensors can be installed in up to DN900 (36 in.) pipes
using Signet's comprehensive line of custom fittings.
These custom fittings, which include tees, saddles, and
weldolets, set the sensor to the proper insertion depth
into the process flow. The sensors are also offered in
configurations for wet-tap and intrinsically safe
