**PD Rotary Meters ( Displacement Meters)**

Positive displacement flow meters, also know as PD meters, measure volumes of fluid flowing through by counting repeatedly the filling and discharging of known fixed volumes. 25/03/2017

**Principle of Operation**

PD Rotary Meters ( Displacement Meters) Principle of Operation POSITION 1. As the bottom impeller rotates in a counterclockwise direction towards a horizontal position, fluid enters the space between the impeller and cylinder. POSITION 2. At the horizontal position, a definite volume of fluid is contained in the bottom compartment. 25/03/2017

31
**Principle of Operation**

PD Rotary Meters ( Displacement Meters) Principle of Operation POSITION 3. As the impeller continues to turn, the volume of fluid is discharged out the other side. POSITION 4. The top impeller, rotating in opposite direction, has closed to its horizontal position confining another known and equal volume of fluid. 25/03/2017

45
Turbine Flow Meters A turbine with blades filling the meter can rotate freely on bearings. As the fluid passes it spins the blades round and a magnetic sensor in the body transmits pulses to pulse counting circuits. It is easily dismantled and if calibrated is very accurate PEC – UET Lahore Dr. Shahid Naveed März 2017 / Dr. –Ing Naveed Ramzan

46
Turbine Flow Meters It consists of a multi-bladed rotor mounted at right angles to the flow and suspended in the fluid stream on a free-running bearing. The diameter of the rotor is very slightly less than the inside diameter of the metering chamber, and its speed of rotation is proportional to the volumetric flow rate. 25/03/2017

47
Turbine Flow Meters The rotational speed is a direct function of flow rate and can be sensed by magnetic pick-up, photoelectric cell, or gears. Electrical pulses can be counted and totalized. 25/03/2017

**Coriolis Mass Flowmeter**

In the Coriolis meter the fluid is passed through a tube. The tubes are available in different design like tubes of U-shape or horseshoe-shaped. The tubes can either be curved or straight. When two tubes are used the flow is divided when entering the meter and then recombined. The flow when enters the tube encounters oscillating excitation force that causes the tubes to vibrate at a fixed frequency. The vibration is induced in the direction that is perpendicular to flow of fluid. This creates the rotation frame of reference. Consider the tube during oscillation moving up and downward, when the tube is moving upward the fluid flowing in it tends to resist this and forces it downward. When the tube moves in the opposite direction, so does the fluid and a twist in introduced in the tube. All this might not be visible by directly observing. The twist at inlet of fluid and outlet of fluid results in phase difference or time lag and that is dependent on the fluid mass passing through the tube.
