Oval gear flowmeter is mainly used for high value liquids such as oil, chemical, etc. Main applications include unloading, transfer and consumption monitoring. The oval gear flow meter is a kind of Positive Displacement Flow Meter. As the fluid being measured passes thru the meter, it rotates 2 oval gears in measuring cavity to displace a precise volume of fluid. Asensor detects the gear rotation to determine displaced volume and flow rate.
The meter design minimizes the slippage between the gears and the measuring cavity wall. As a result, the oval meter is less affected than other designs by the liquid’s viscosity and lubricity.
