Standard Facility of Water Flow Rate


This facility was designed based on the principle of dynamic gravimetric calibration, equipped with high-precision electronic balance to transfer the measuring value. All of the executions are automatically controlled by computer systems, working task tables can be set up by operators themselves, real time of whole process’s testing data can be recorded, and the flow characteristics of water meters be assessed according to the standard values. The facility is also equipped with frequency conversion pump and high speed on-off valves, which can carry out the work task at high speed and raise the work efficiency. The facility is suitable for the field of scientific research, product evaluation, industrial production and other fields of fluid measurement.

  • Schematic diagram of structure

Put the water meters (or flow-meters) on to the testing pipeline, open the cyclical pipeline that is corresponding, regulate the frequency of pumping power, make the flow rate reach a define level and keep the flow rate & pressure to steady, then start a gravimetric testing and record the quality of collection tank and the display volume of water meters (or flow-meters), waiting for the volume that pass through the water pipeline reaches to preset target, then turn off the valve of water supply, stop the motor pumping, record the total time that water has passed & the increased value of collection tank, calculate the flow error between the value of collection tank and display value of water meter (or flow-meter), assess the error whether or not in the range that allowed with the standard document.
