Axial turbines can be likened and tend to look like marine propellers housed in a tube which is the flowmeters body. Instead of being driven, they rotate freely with the flow of fluid as it passes over them. With a non-contacting pickup and a simple cylindrical body axial turbines can easily be designed to take very high pressures in the thousands of Bar. Their design tends to preclude going down to very low flow rates but theoretically there is no upper size limit to how big they can get.
Applications include: Water, Hydraulic Oil, Chemicals, Fuels, High Pressure, Hazardous Area and Hygienic to name but a few. The Tri-clamp versions in the G2 range seem especially popular with the brewing and distilling industry for dispensing, mixing and blending of everything from hot and cold potable water, wort to raw spirits and Ethanol.
