Video Tutorials Aid Flow Meter Installation
Aug 16 2021
Within the flow metering industry, wiring a flow meter is often second nature to experienced engineers and may seem intuitive for established customers. However, Titan’s flow meters are used throughout a wide variety of industries, processes and applications. New customers unfamiliar with flow metering solutions, may find themselves in turbulent water if the meters are wired incorrectly during the installation process.
To combat this problem, Titan Enterprises have released video tutorials illustrating correct wiring of their pulse precision flow measurement devices to support customers with the installation of flow meters into their applications.
The majority of Titan’s flow meters use transistors which can be damaged through simple wiring mistakes, resulting in a defunct meter before the customer has even started. By providing customers with clear visual methods of how to install a flow meter and correct wiring to the power source, customers’ time and money are saved for these preventable errors.
“Although all Titan flow measurement devices are supported with written data and instruction sheets, through our ISO 9001 examination of returns and call logs, we have found that a large percentage of flow meter installation issues result from mis-wiring,” stated Jeremy Thorne, Production Manager with Titan Enterprises.
Neil Hannay, Senior R&D Engineer at Titan Enterprises, commented: “For customers who are new to our flow meters, visual demonstrations for wiring the flow measurement devices will help to reduce simple errors that cost customers time and money.
“YouTube is a very accessible platform and is a great delivery method for Titan flow meter instructional videos. As we don’t carry out on-site flow meter installations ourselves, providing visual tutorials are a useful way to illustrate correct wiring methods which we anticipate will reduce the number of unnecessary returns and rebuilds.”
Video tutorials currently available on the Titan website include wiring requirements for: Titan’s beverage flow meter; Turbine flow meters within Titan’s 800 series, 900 series and FT2 flow transducers; Titan’s OG2 oval gear flow meter.
These flow metering instruction videos will be expanded to include a full range of flow meter devices in order to help customers get the best out of their meters and to ensure that the meters are performing to their most efficient levels within customer applications.
