GENERAL DESCRIPTION:

Sure Flow Products variable area flow rate indicators are designed for tough industrial applications. This flow indicator is mechanical with a spring-loaded float and magnetic follower. This allows for mounting in any orientation and is ideal for use with dark or opaque fluids. The sharp edge orifice provides excellent measurement stability. These unique flow devices are not affected by changes in viscosities up to 500 SSU. For viscosities greater than 500 SSU and for air or gas applications, each flow indicator is individually calibrated for customer operating conditions.
