Titan Enterprises offers a range of insertion turbine liquid flow measurement systems, for permanent or portable installation in larger diameter pipelines, from 40-900mm.

Insertion flowmeters measure the point velocity of the liquid in a pipe. Due to the relatively small disturbance the insertion turbine metering head introduces to a pipe, pressure losses for this type of flowmeter are very low thereby producing energy savings by reducing pumping costs. Typical applications for insertion turbine flowmeters include water distribution mains, fire hydrant monitoring, boiler feed measurement, irrigation systems, district heating and HVAC systems.

Titan's innovative, robust insertion turbine combines proven technology with modern materials and innovative design. The PVDF turbine rotates freely on a 316 stainless steel shaft and has special aerofoil shaped blades to extend the dynamic range of the meter. The specially contoured housing further improves the meter linearity particularly at lower fluid velocities. Installation from the side of the flow line is made via a  BSP or NPT fitting, and versions are available for 'hot-tap' insertion into pressurised lines.

Each insertion turbine meter contains two sensors, one self-powered (for battery operated equipment) and the other an open collector transistor. A reed switch may be specified for hazardous areas were simple apparatus is acceptable. The body of Titan Insertion Turbine flowmeters is manufactured from AISI316 stainless steel and as standard is supplied with three meters of five core screened instrument cable. Titan Metra-Count, Metra-Smart and Metra-Batch devices can all be mounted directly onto a turbine insertion flow meter to provide display of flow rate , total  or batch control.
