General Model RAKC

Short-tube Rotameter®
Specifications

A conical float is guided into a cylindrical metal tube provided


with an orifice plate. The position of this float is magnetically
transmitted to the indicator.

The short-tube Rotameter is used for measurement of low flow


rates of liquids and gases. Its special application is in troubled,
opaque or aggressive mediums and under high pressure. The
instrument is mounted in a vertical pipeline with flow direction
upwards.

FEATURES
● Standard design with internal thread
● Other process connections on request
● Without valve (vertical connection)
● With valve (horizontal connection)
● Controller with valve can be fitted
● Pressure resistant (40, 100, 160 bar). Other ratings on
request.
● Optional output signal of 4-20 mA by electronic transmitter
● Intrinsically safe version
● Optional limit switch (Min., Max.)
