Ideal for monitoring pump performance and media flows in hydraulic systems.
Why choose a reverse flow, flow meter?
Generally, one-way flow, inline flow meters have an integral check valve assembly that prevents the oil from flowing in reverse. This feature is safe when testing hydraulic pumps, but creates a potential hazard when testing double-acting cylinders and reversible motors.
Due to area difference, when flow is restricted at the rod-end of a double-acting, single-rod cylinder, the forces can cause the pressure to increase to a hazardous level – as much as two times the pressure relief valve setting!
Flows up to 150 GPM (568 Lpm). Pressures up to 6000 PSI (414 bar). Use these flow meters to setup, adjust and test hydraulic pumps, motors, cylinders, and more! The only way to test a pump and motors safely and effectively is to use a flow meter.
