PA – Turbine Flowmeter Range

Our PA - Turbine Flow Meters have a unique open bearing design which allows the measured media to flow freely thru the bearings and therefore provides continuous lubrication. This prolongs the life time of the flow meter and allows for free flow of cleaning agents during CIP. This is why we can provide a full 5-year warranty on our whole turbine flow meter series.
