Description

Meet the Sherlock Holmes of commercial irrigation flow meters.

Sherlock Holmes. Hercule Poirot. Dick Tracy. All world class detectives.

Well, you can add the FLOMEC® QS200 to that list. 

Why? The QS200 Ultrasonic Flowmeter measures flow rates 5x lower than most other flow sensors on the market AND offers extended leak detection down to 0.1 fps. That means it can detect leaking valves, blockages and other hidden irrigation system problems those other meters can’t.

Here’s the problem with most flow meters in commercial irrigation applications.

Paddle wheel, nutating disc and other mechanical flow meters have an impeller that has to start moving for the meter to sense any flow. To do that, there has to be enough flow for the impeller to overcome friction.

That’s no problem in many applications, where mechanical flow meters work great. But commercial irrigation is different. The low flows typical in drip lines and bubblers often aren’t enough to get those impellers moving.

So what happens? The meters read “no flow” even when there IS flow—it’s just below their ability to sense.

That’s a red herring. It masks system leaks. These small leaks add up to big losses over time.

A “small” 0.3 GPM leak adds up to these water losses over time:

18 gallonsevery hour
432 gallonsin one day
12,960 gallonsin one month
157,680 gallonsin one year

That’s an enormous waste of water if undetected!

It can also mask system blockages. When you know your meters read “no flow” even when there IS flow, how are you supposed to know when there actually ISN’T?

The QS200 was designed specifically to handle the low flows typical in commercial irrigation.

So how is the QS200 different? What’s the secret of its super-sleuthing ability?

It’s ultrasonic, with no moving parts. There’s no impeller that has to start moving for the meter to sense flow. The QS200 measures flow rates as low as 0.22 GPM, with extended leak detection down to 0.1 fps! It provides an accurate reading of liquid flow rate and accumulated flow.

The QS200 ultrasonic insert is available with a PVC tee or as an “insert retrofit” for easy replacement of some existing paddle wheel flow sensors.

So, should you choose the QS200 for your commercial irrigation system?

It’s elementary, my dear Watson.

The QS200 is on the case! (Case study, that is.)
