The variable area flow meter KA provides for simple, reliable and inexpensive oil flow measurement. The KA oil flow meter proves useful in applications where easy-to-read mechanical equipment are enough. We believe in finding the most suitable solution for our customers’ needs and often variable area flow meters cover all the measurement and monitoring requirements.
With more than 75 years in flow meter design and manufacturing, Kytola Instruments knows how to make highly precise and accurate flow meters. The reliable operation of the KA variable area flow meters rely on our long-term experience and in-depth expertise in flow measurement equipment.
Kytola’s industrial variable area flow meters are made to last and to make flow measurement easy for the user. The design enhances high performance in demanding applications with low operational costs. The KA is simple to install and it requires minimal maintenance. KA has an exceptionally visual and readable design. Thanks to its versatility, the KA flow meter is easy to implement to a variety of uses.
Simplified the basic operational principle of a KA variable area flow meter is the following: oil flow raises the float in the tapered tube of the flow meter. This increases the area for passage of the oil. The free area is related to the flow rate, oil viscosity and the weight of the float. In other words: the greater the flow, the higher the float is raised.
