IP80 Series Paddle Wheel Flow Sensors
The IP80 series are impeller type (or paddlewheel) insertion meters designed for use with a wide variety of liquids in pipe sizes 1/2 to 8. Sensors are available in brass, 316 stainless steel, PVC, and polypropylene. Bodies are machined from a solid rod for maximum precision. High-quality jewel bearings and nickel-bound tungsten carbide shafts are used for extreme low friction and long life.
For rate and total display, the Shark-120/240 controller or Shark TX/P transmitter (loop powered) models are compatible with IP80 series sensors. They can be mounted in either surface, pipe or panel configurations.
The IP80 series require special fittings that ensure correct depth placement in the pipe. Fittings come in a variety of materials for compatibility with specific applications. Tee fittings are individually wet-calibrated at the factory and marked with the K-factor (pulses per gallon). Saddle fittings must be field-installed on the pipe and do not come wet-calibrated. K-factors for saddles are based on factory testing.
