|Product Code||Water Current Meter|
The technologically advanced Water Current Meter (Propeller Type) offered by us is ideal for the measurement of velocity of flow of water in open channels and streams. Fabricated in compliance with IS 3910, our Water Current Meter (Propeller Type) has been termed as the best available in the market. Construction and Working : Consist of six cup assembly mounted on a vertical shaftThis shaft is held vertical in a yoke frame on two pivot points.Yoke frame while holding the moving assembly protect its cups from damage from the Floating bodies in flowing waterThe vertical shaft rests on a pivot point at the lower end, which is adjustableThe upper end of the shaft is held in at a pivot position inside the magnetic contact Chamber, which is made water tight by a cap.The magnetic contact chamber is equipped with Two contact switches the terminals of which are located outside on the body of the contact chamber.Only one switch is used at a time, the other is a spare and stands by switch and can be used immediately, if one goes out of order.The other end of the contact terminal (earth) is the yoke frame itself and so a common earth terminal has been provided on the yoke frame.The bucket wheel rotates in between two pivots in the yoke frame.Each revolution of the bucket wheel makes a contact of the magnetic switch in the magnetic chamber which can be recorded on a counterThe yoke frame consists of a tail fin with a balance weight, which moves in a slot and can be adjusted at any place within slot.The balancing weight is so adjusted so as to keep the current meter horizontal when suspended in waterThe tail fin keeps the yoke frame with the bucket wheel to the upstream direction as the tail fin goes to downstream direction with the flow of waterThe meter is suspended in water with the help of a suspension flat in deep water, and by a suspension wading rod in shallow water.
