Webtec, the hydraulic measurement and control company, based in Milwaukee, WI has announced the launch of a brand new range of high-pressure, precision gear flow meters rated up to 40 US gpm (150 lpm) for use on applications as diverse as hydraulic component leak testing, wind turbine lubrication monitoring and offshore
In an industry first the new GF series is designed specifically for the hydraulic and lubrication market, not the process industry, so all products are designed and calibrated for use on oils, or phosphate-esters or water-glycols. Webtec recognized that positive displacement meters, like the new GF series, are often used in such a wide range of industries that the engineer tasked with specifying them is often baffled by the number of, often irrelevant, options.
Since hydraulic circuits are often prone to regular pressure spikes, Webtec has ensured the new GF gear flow meters are rated up to 6000 psi (420 bar) maximum operating pressure, and also have a safety factor of over three, unlike many process meters.
