Mini Turbine Flow Meters & Titan Flow Meter Applications

In this new blog feature we look to present examples of customer flow meter applications that were solved by a flow meter system development by Titan Enterprises. This example reports on developments made for Agrochemical specialists – Stored Crop Conservation Ltd. (www.storedcrop.co.uk) and looks at Titan mini turbine flow meters.

Hygiene and the elimination of pests and fungus is a major problem in the growth and storage of bulk crops in modern agriculture and Titan’s mini turbine flow meters have proved a useful asset for Stored Conservation Ltd. From the preparation of the buildings used for the food production through to the silos containing the mass storage of products cleanliness is essential to ensure the quality of the produce. Even when produce is being put into storage the application of various chemicals extends the life of the products.

Stored Crop Conservation Limited (SCCL) has produced a system of “fogging” these spaces with a very fine mist which ensures the whole volume is coated with the appropriate chemical. The company has developed its own equipment and methods which ensure a much more even treatment than conventional methods. These chemicals are often regulated substances and careful control of the application volume is critical.

For nearly 15 years the company has been using Titan flow meters for the recording of the amount of chemical used. On current generation SCCL machines the volume of dispensed chemicals is recorded using Titan 900 series mini turbine flow meters. These flow meters are coupled to a panel indicator recording total volume throughput on a re-settable display. In this way the machine operator can check the desired dosage for an area against the actual volume of chemical used ensuring safe dispersal of these controlled chemicals. To ensure consistent reliable measurements, SCCL’s in-house calibration rigs utilise Titan’s highly accurate oval gear (OG) flow meters.
