ITT BARTON® Floco® and Flotrac® meters are designed for raw crude oil productions. The Floco F Series meter has proven itself to be a versatile unit that performs in a broad range of high viscosity fluids. The products of ITT Barton are ideal for use with oils and grease, paints and coatings and even paraffin. The Floco meter can also be used to drive a proportional sampler to provide volume as well as product quality data. The Flotrac meter is a extremly durable unit that provides accurate, high-pressure measurement of low viscosity liquids.
The Flotrac Meter is designed for mechanically measuring volumes of low-viscosity liquids flowing at high pressure. It employs the unique “constrained vortex” principle to provide an accurate measurement over a 10:1 range. The special configuration of the metering chamber forces streams into a series of vortices, causing the rotor assembly to rotate in direct proportion to the flow rate. The two liquid streams are then combined at the meter outlet port.
The Floco Series F Meter of ITT Barton is a positive displacement meter with a unique rotor design that provides sustained accuracy even under the most extreme conditions.
It measures viscous, waxy, corrosive and abrasive liquids to within ±1% maximum accuracy. The Series F Meter measures liquid by separating it into equal portions and counting them.
Liquid enters the meter through the inlet port, where the bridge deflects the liquid downward to strike the rotor blades and turn the rotor. The liquid then passes through the outlet port,
which is aligned with the inlet port. The unique rotor design allows solid particles and sediment to pass through the meter without causing damage or malfunction.
Bridge seals prevent the liquid from passing to the outlet port without being measured. ITT Barton Floco meters are unique in there kind and have the best performance money can buy.
