Fluid Power AW-Lake flow meter hydraulics

AW-Lake has added the HM-U hydraulic system flow meter to its family of products designed to measure hydraulic fluids for precise regulation and control of flow rates in hydraulic systems. It’s optimized for hydraulic performance applications and ideal for components such as pumps, valves and fittings.

It performs in temperatures ranges from -40°F (140°C) to 248°F (120°C) and offers accuracy of ±0.5% M.V. over full range with 30cP fluid. Two integrated quarter inch BSPP connections allow users to install their own temperature and/or pressure transmitters for optional measurement. Compact and lightweight, the flow meter features a durable aluminum housing with stainless steel internals.

It’s compatible with the AW-Lake EDGE Flow Sensor that offers Bluetooth capabilities providing users easy access, understanding and control of their flow measurement. Easily mounted on the turbine flow meter, the EDGE Flow Sensor outputs a frequency, current or analog signal that gives users more installation flexibility, especially when unsure of readout equipment or a control room interface.
