General Model RAKD

Small Metal Rotameter®


Specifications

A float is guided concentrically in a special shaped


conic metal tube. 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.

ADVICE FOR PROJECT WORK

- The real working pressure has to be less than the specified pressure limit of the Rotameter.

- Make sure that the wetted material is resistent to the medium.

- Ambient and operation temperature has to be less than the specified maximum value.

- If dirt accumulation is to be expected we recommend to install a bypass pipe.

- To avoid float bouncing in case of gas application notice the recommandations of VDI/VDE 3513 Sheet 3.

- To avoid mutual magnetic influence in case of a parallel design of several Rotameters take care that the distance
between the tube middle axes is not less than 120 mm. The distance to other ferrictic materials should not be less
than 60 mm.

- The strength of external magnetic fields close by the Rotameter should be approximately 0mT.
