Kobold DWU Paddle Bellows Flow Monitor

The new KOBOLD flow indicator and monitor DWU works according to the diaphragm plate principle. Baffle/paddle (1) is deflected in the flow direction against the force of the spring (2) by the flowing medium. A stainless steel bellows (3) seals off the system hermetically between medium and measuring unit/indicator. The motion is transferred positively from the baffle (1) to the measuring section. The actual flow rate is displayed in l/min or m3/h on the dial (5) by the pointer (4). In the measuring section a microswitch (6) and a pilot lamp (7) are activated as soon as the set switching point is exceeded or undershot. Thus the change in flow is clearly signalled locally by the switching point pilot lamp (illuminates for undershooting). At the same time switching operations are triggered by the microswitch, designed as a 3-pole changeover contact. The displacement-deflection technique is one of the most secure systems available as motion is transferred positively from the baffle plate to the measuring section. With these flow monitors if the T piece becomes clogged up with lime, foreign objects or dirt, the system responds with "no flow". It is practically impossible for the system to hang up in a position that indicates flow when there is in fact no flow.
