Metallic Tee Type Flow Sensors - Series 228

The Series 228 flow sensors from Badger Meter feature a six-bladed impeller design with a proprietary non-magnetic sensing mechanism. The forward swept impeller shape provides higher, more consistent torque than four-bladed impeller designs and is less prone to be fouled by water-borne debris. The forward curved shape coupled with the absence of magnetic drag provides improved operation and repeatability, even at lower flow rates. This is especially true where the impeller is exposed to metallic or rust particles found in steel or iron pipes.
