Brass body gage measures water flow rates

Water Flow Rate

A Series 4000 Capsuhelic® differential pressure gage available with brass body, required for water service to prevent corrosion damage to the gage, is used in conjunction with a Series DS-300 averaging Pitot tube. The Capsuhelic® gage provides a basic method of measuring water flow rates. As a guide in selecting the appropriate Capsuhelic® gage range, the designer can consult data provided with the DS-300 averaging Pitot tube. This relates differential pressure in inches of water column to the water flow in gallons per minute for the pipe size involved. The gage can be calibrated directly in GPM if desired. Bleed fittings installed in the top ports of the gage are recommended to facilitate removal of air from the system.
