Signet P525-XX Metalex Flow Sensor

525 Metalex Flow Sensor

The Signet 525 Metalex™ Paddlewheel Flow Sensor combines stainless steel construction with insertion paddlewheel technology. The result is a highly reliable sensor resistant to extreme pressures and temperatures. The Tungsten Carbide shaft with carbon fiber-reinforced PTFE bearing provides excellent wear resistance for extended service.

A comprehensive fitting program allows installation in steel lines with the mini-lock for small diameters, and either the mini-tap for pipes up to DN300 (12 in.). The self-generating signal output allows use with the Signet 8150 battery-operated flow monitor.
