SDI Flow Conditioner
The SDI flow conditioner offers a simple method of reducing or eliminating flow swirl resulting from pipe bends and the location of valves, thermowells or pressure taps naturally found in piping systems. The flow conditioner produces less pressure drop compared to other flow conditioning methods and prevents false readings from fluid swirl effects inherent in process piping systems. SDI flow sensor performance is vastly improved.
The series feature a six-bladed impeller design with a proprietary, non-magnetic sensing mechanism. The impeller shape coupled with the absence of magnetic drag provides accuracy and repeatability throughout the flow range of the sensors. As the liquid flow turns the impeller, a low impedance square wave signal is transmitted with a frequency proportional to the flow rate.
