NFX Glass Tube Variable Area Flowmeter

The Nixon NFX Glass tube Variable Area Flowmeter is available in a full range of lengths and is available scaled for liquid or gas measurement. Customised scales match the meter to specific conditions.

There is a choice of three scale lengths for optimum readability or compact installation. Repeatability is better than 0.5% of reading to improve process control. An optional needle valve is available for precise control at reduced cost.

The tubes are removable from the frame for easy cleaning/ replacement. Angled or straight connections allow for flexible pipe layout. The meters can be simply mounted to reduce installation costs.

The instruments have a retained polycarbonate cover to ensure operator safety in the event of a breakage. The units are aesthetically styled to suit integration into original equipment

Your co-operation in pulling out all the stops to supply a replacement turbine flowmeter has meant we have not lost any production time. I am a great believer that such service should not go unrecognised.
