Low Flow Meter

Operating Principle:

Low,Flow,Meter,Kenco,EngineeringThe Kenco 1618 Low Flow Meter is part of an oil supply system for a stationary engine or compressor crankcase. The 1618 is installed on the inlet side of the crankcase, upstream of a Kenco Oil Level Controller. The 1618 Low Flow Meter will provide a constant, accurate measurement of oil consumption by the crankcase, the power cylinder lubricators, and the compressor cylinder lubricators. A single pole single throw reed switch is also available as an option; the switch will close momentarily every time the piston inside the meter strokes.
The Kenco 1618 is the low maintenance, cost-effective solution for visible and accurate readings of engine oil consumption.

Features:

  • Double action, single piston meter

  • Measures flow rates up to 5 gallons per hour

  • Provides an Indication of Engine Condition

  • Registers up to 9,999 gallons

  • Counter Immersed in Oil, Assuring Maximum Resistance to Wear From Vibration

  • SPST reed switch available(Model 14308)
