Woltman type water meters can be used for flow rates higher than Qn 15 m³/h. They are thereby distinguished by ensuring an especially low head loss, even with high flow rates.
The newly developed measuring insert with a special construction of the turbine where the water flows through, guarantees a high measuring accuracy and long-term stability of the measuring results. Large number rollers on the dry dial counter ensure the readability of the numbers at all times.
Similar to multi-jet meters, Woltman meters measure the velocity of the water flowing through with the help of a turbine. The volume is mechanically calculated, through the known volume of the measuring chamber, and indicated with the roller counters in cubic meters. The unique form of the “paddle wheels” enable the Woltman meters to cover a very large measuring range with especially low head loss. Aside from their construction for high flow rates, they also reliably start measuring with small water quantities.
Active or passive sensors are available for communication with pulse counting modules or automation and control systems. Inductive NAMUR, optical, and Reed sensors can be retrofitted without damaging the calibration seal. Active sensors have a pulse value, depending on the meter size, of either 1 or 10 L/Imp. Reed sensors have a pulse value of 100 L/Imp. up to 10 m³/lmp, depending on the meter size.
Well water meters are vertical Woltman meters with a special design of the body. They can be attached as a wellhead in place of a 90° elbow according to DIN 28537 and DIN 28637.
The body is especially designed for the conditions of a well construction. The well water enters at the underside of the meter, flows through the perpendicular standing turbine and leaves the meter through the 90° elbow. The unique construction of our turbine ensures low starting values and offers enough reserves in the overload range for reliably measuring high flow rates. The coating on the inside and outside reliably protects the meter from corrosion. Minerals in the water cannot affect the fully encapsulated dry dial counter.
Our design is ideally suited for narrow well shafts with small dimensions. An extra installation spot for a classical Woltman meter does not need to be planned.
