Model 2030 Mechanical Flowmeter

Model 2030 series
Mechanical Flowmeters

The model 2030 series Digital, Mechanical Flowmeter is a compact, general purpose instrument for flow measurements in rivers, estuaries, canals, sewage outfalls, and offshore applications. It is ideal for determining water speed, volume, or distance.

The Flowmeter incorporates a precision molded rotor coupled directly to a six digit counter which registers each revolution of the rotor and displays it in a fashion similar to that of an odometer. The counter is located within the body of the instrument and is displayed through the clear plastic housing.

Weight in Air: 225 grams (8 ounces).
Weight in Water: 113 grams (4 ounces)
Materials: Celcon rotor. Nickel-plated brass nose cone. Polycarbonate body. Armaloyed stainless steel main rotor and idler gear shafts.
Dimensions: 21.3 cm (8 3/8") overall length. Standard rotor diameter: 6.98 cm (2 3/4"). Low-speed rotor diameter: 16.5 cm (6 1/2").
Depth Rating: Unlimited (free flooding).
Data Readout: Six 10-digit counter wheels reading 000000 to 999999. Ten counts per rotor revolution, non-resetting. Read by noting difference in beginning and end readings. (counter advances through 000000).
6-Digit Full Scale Counter: 999999 counts equals approximately 14.5 nautical miles.
