The EFC Group Zone 1 Flow Paddle provides a method for flow monitoring and is developed to meet the harsh operating environments in heavy-duty industrial position sensing applications.
EFC Group Zone 1 Flow Paddle
The Zone 1 paddle continuously monitors the rate of mud flow by the angle of paddle position which in return rotates a Potentiometer. An interface unit in the junction box produces a milliamp signal within the 4-20mA range. After the system is activated, the paddle assembly having the paddle at vertical position represents 0% flow, and the paddle at the horizontal position represents 100% flow.
Flow Paddle Damping
The flow paddle has an adjustable counter weight and a hydraulic damper that smoothes the action of the paddle.
The Electro-Flow Control flow paddle has been developed to meet the harsh operating environments in heavy-duty industrial position sensing applications. The Rotary Sensor is sealed to meet IP68 protection. The sensor has less than 1° increment to measure the 90° angle over which the flow paddle operates on.
2-Wire Level Transmitter
The 2-Wire Level Transmitter converts the potentiometric output from the rotary sensor to a 4-20 Ma analogue signal.
