Seametrics IP810P Fixed Depth Insertion Paddlewheel Flow Sensor, PVC, 1/2 in-3 in (Previously IP81P.)
  • Product Description
  • Dimension Drawing
Seametrics IP800-Series paddlewheel fixed-depth insertion meters are designed for use with a wide variety of liquids in pipe sizes 1/2 in to 8 in. Flow sensors are available in brass (B), 316 stainless steel (S), PVC (P), and polypropylene (Y).

The combination of high-quality ruby jewel bearings and a non-drag Hall-effect sensor to detect the passage of miniature magnets in the six rotor blades gives Seametrics IP800-Series flow meters the widest flow range of any of the paddlewheel types. Bodies are machined from a solid rod for maximum precision. Nickel-bound tungsten carbide shafts are used for extreme low friction and long life. Optional ceramic shafts provide excellent chemical resistance for challenging chemical applications. Output is a current-sinking pulse, which can be sent long distances (up to 2,000 feet) without a transmitter. This signal can be connected directly to PLC's, counters, and computer cards, as well as a variety of Seametrics controls and displays.

Seametrics IP800 flow meters are ideal for chemical proportioning applications. For easy installation, a modular system of electronics can be factory-installed directly on the flow sensor. Wall and panel mounted electronics are available for field or remote installation.

The IP800-Series flow meters require special fittings to ensure correct insertion depth placement in the pipe. Seametrics fittings come in a variety of materials for compatibility with specific applications. Tee fittings are individually wet-calibrated at the factory and marked with the K-factor (pulses per gallon). Saddle fittings must be field-installed on the pipe and do not come wet-calibrated. K-factors for saddles are based on factory-testing.
