Featured Product from Eldridge Products, Inc.
Mounting Options - FOR INLINE AND INSERTION FLOW METERS
Inline style flow meters are plumbed directly into the process piping. A variety of installations / mounting options are available for sizes from 1/4 pipe through 4” pipe ( consult factory for larger pipe sizes). The default assembly includes 316SS schedule 40 pipe. Alternate pipe schedules, Hastelloy C-276 wetted parts or various tube sizes are available as special order items. The standard end configuration is MNPT (Male national pipe thread) ends for flow section up to 2 1/2” ; flow section of 3” and larger are assembled with the appropriate size of ANSI 150# class flanges. If required, optional end mounting styles may be specific such as tube ends, tube end fittings, butt weld ends, flanged end configuration, Tri- Clamps, etc.
In addition, international requirements for DN or JIS pipe, tubes and flanges can generally be accommodated or, alternative, we can use material provided by end users to assure compatibility during installation.
Insertion style flow meters must be inserted through the pipe wall and held securely in place. To accomplish this, we have a number of hardware options. The most common choises include compression fittings with SS or Teflon ferrules, ball valve assemblies, flanges welded to probes, or pipes nipples. If required,, Hastelloy C-276 assesblies are also available
