RCM Industries Flow MetersRCM Industries Flow Meters

RCM Industries Flow Meters measure flow based on a differential pressure created across a calibrated nozzle suitable for monitoring lube oil, cooling water, compressed air, oxygen, carbon dioxide. Saturated steam can also be measured up to 120 psig. Flow meters available from 1/4″ to 8″ connection, Bronze, SST or Monel alloy the digital display flow meter is constructed of Bronze or SST only. Dials calibrated in engineering units (GPM, SCFM, LPM, Nm3/HR, etc.) specializing in OEM applications in variety of industrial processes where durability and reliability are important considerations in monitoring flow.  Contact Northeast Controls for more information and/or sales assistance.

RCM Industries Flow Meters are a direct reading flow meter with a large, easy to read dial calibrated in engineering units (GPM, SCFM, l/min, etc.). The RCM Industries Flo-Gage measures flow based on a pressure differential created across a built-in calibrated nozzle. The meter is self-contained and complete. It does not require external power connections, separate orifices, or blocking, purging or equalizing valves.The Flo-Gage for liquids is suitable for measuring water, oil and most other low viscosity liquids which do not deposit out and which are compatible with the materials of construction.

RCM Industries Flow Meters for compressed gases is also suitable for measuring compressed air, oxygen, carbon dioxide and many other nontoxic compressed gases. (Specify option I.) Saturated steam can also be mea­sured up to 120 psig. (Option K).

The RCM Flo-Gage can be fitted with a two-wire transmitter to provide a current output for remote indication, recording or totalization, or with reed switch contacts for signaling high or low flows.

The Flo-Gage flow meter has been developed for industrial ap­plications where durability and reliability are important consider­ations in the monitoring of flow. The Flo-Gage has accuracy for most industrial processes and is particularly suited for applications where compactness, low cost, minimal maintenance and resistance to accidental damage are important factors.

RCM Industries Flow Meters  ship within 2 weeks as a standard. We also offer a QuickShip** option resulting in shipments within 3 days from date of order.

** Carries a nominal charge & excludes Fridays.

Typical applications include: lube oil monitoring, blending pro­cesses, cooling water, reverse osmosis systems, and com­pressed air measurement.

Ethanol Plants
Americas top automobile manufacturers approve, and even recommend, fuel enriched with up to 10% ethanol and hybrids designed to run on E85 (85% ethanol and 15% gasoline) which is the cleanest burning, renewable fuel today. RCM Industries is proud to be a part of the effort to clean up the environment in providing flow measuring product in the production of ethanol. RCM flow meters monitor seal water, ethanol, water / alcohol mixture and fusel oil keeping critical production processes on line and on time.

Radar, TV & Satellite Systems
RCM can monitor critical flow measurements of glycol filled cooling systems typical in the communication industry. Our flow meters are be fitted with reed switches to protect equipment against low and high flow conditions. This technique ensures a direct correlation between the flow rate indicator and the flow switch for ease in configuring a safety interlock or control circuit. These switches are hermetically sealed and epoxy potted for a tamper resistant switch.

Chillers & Pre-Conditioned Air Units
Our flow meters are also used on water cooled chillers used in the Laser, Industrial, Scientific and Semiconductor industry to control various processes. Chillers provide advanced thermal management solutions in various processess Jetway Air handling units provide cool air flow during pre-flight and loading of aircraft at all major airports dramatically reducing fuel and operating cost.

Petroleum Industry
RCM Industries, Inc. has been providing rugged flow meter for a variety of industrial processes such as blending, bearing cooling, boiler fuel oil feed, coking, refining process and compressed air measurement. Heavy lubricating and fuel oils with viscosities up to 500 cps can be metered with the RCM flow meter. Reed switches are approved for hazardous location AEx ia IIC: Class I, Div. I Groups A,B,C & D Class II, Div. I Groups E,F & G and Ex ia IIC: Zone 0, II 1G T4 EC Type Examination provide an economical solution for equipment protection and automation.

Beverage Industry
RCM Industries supplies flow meters to several beverage bottling plants used for blending processes, carbo – coolers, carbon dioxide injection equipment, flow -mixers, and beverage prep systems. Typical flow meters used is the 316 stainless steel model. As you can see in the pictures to the right the RCM flow meters plays an important roll in monitoring CO2 flow in the beverage blending process.

Chemical Plants
Other flow meter applications include chemical processing, bubbler systems and cooling. Welding gases can also be monitored using the RCM flow meter. The RCM flow meter is particularly suited for applications where compactness, low cost, minimal maintenance and resistance to accidental damage are important factors.
