TUSTIN, CA — George Fischer Inc. has developed a class of sensors that retain a high degree of flow-sensing accuracy, making it ideal for wastewater and ultrapure-water measurement systems. The Signet Industrial Vortex and High Purity Vortex sensors are designed with no moving parts, giving them high reliability and maintenance-free operation. The units feature true union and multiple connection options for maximum installation and reliability sealing. For a local display, the sensor can be connected to the company’s Signet ProcessPro Flow transmitter. It has an adjustable 4-20mA and an open-collector sensor pulse output signal. The Vortex sensor is available either as a stand-alone unit providing frequency or current output, or as a programmable transmitter system. For industrial flow applications, the sensor is made of various materials, including polypropylene, polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC). The sensor received the 1999 Flow Control Innovation Award, in a voting scheme where readers selected the award-winners from among 29 companies.
