Totaliser measures volumes of viscous liquids

Titan Enterprises is introducing a low-cost, battery-powered totaliser for applications such as monitoring the 'Post Mix' syrups used in bar or cellar dispense systems. Batches of these new Titan METRA-SUM units are already being delivered to major suppliers of syrups and bar blending systems to provide a separate independent record of the quantities of the different syrups delivered, for bar management and dispense machine monitoring.

Totaliser measures volumes of viscous liquids

The Titan METRA-SUM unit uses a positive displacement flowmeter, an Oval Gear meter, which gives good measurement accuracy even when used on viscous fluids. It also benefits from a wide flow rangeability, from 0.15 to 4 litres/min, and the measurement is unaffected by external factors such as line size, configuration, fluid viscosity, density, pressure or temperature. With a six-digit totaliser, the display shows the volume of syrup dispensed, in litres, enabling the supplier to monitor the total syrup usage in that supply line.

Fitted as standard with 0.5inch John Guest push-in fittings, or 0.5inch male threads for the flow line connections, the METRA-SUM unit uses a food-grade polyethersulphone moulded plastic body with food-grade silicon seals. Other materials in the internal rotating oval gears are approved for food use, constructed from PEEK. The externally-mounted electronic flow sensor is driven by PTFE encapsulated magnets.

Further models in the range are planned, such as battery-powered units providing both flow rate and total, and with electronic outputs for remote monitoring.
