Acrylic Flow Meter

April 25, 2008
Dakota Instrument's unique ACR Clear Acrylic Flow Meters feature direct reading dual scales mounted interchangeably at the rear of the flow meter.  The scales display both English and Metric System units and are mounted by means of locating holes between the rear of the acrylic block and the yellow-colored backing plate. This exclusive feature allows simple removal of the existing scales and easy mounting of additional scales for different fluids and flow rates. In addition, these versatile meters offer quick conversion from factory-set panel mounting to partial or full in-line configurations by correspondingly exchanging the Plug Seals and the Inlet/Outlet Connectors. Additional features of the ACR Clear Acrylic Flow Meters include 1/8 NPT Female Inlet/Outlet Connectors. Additional Scales, Flow Meter Kits and Needle Valves are available as options. Floats are available in a choice of Glass, 316 Stainless Steel, or Carboloy. These Flow Meters are supplied with factory equipped O-Rings in a choice of Viton® with Stainless Steel fittings or Buna-N® Rubber with brass fittings.
