Paddle Wheel Flow Sensor


A small wheel equipped with “paddles” parallel to the shaft is inserted in the flow stream.

.

Paddle wheel flow meters consist of three main parts: the paddle wheel flow sensor, the pipe fitting, and the display/controller. The paddle wheel flow sensor consists of a smoothly turning wheel or impeller with implanted magnets which is perpendicular to the flow and will rotate when injected in the flowing medium.
