The Tuthill FPP Bulk Transfer Flow Meter is world-renowned for its Durability, Reliability, and Accuracy
In approximately 2011, Tuthill decided to Re-Brand all Tuthill "FPP" meters, and the new name is "Fill-Rite TS" - the meters are identical, and still manufactured by Tuhill, and the part numbers are also the same.
Approvals (Custody Transfer approvals are liquid specific):
Registration & Accessories
Application and Selection Guidance
There are several considerations to be made when selecting a positive displacement flow meter. To make a sound meter model selection, the following checklist will help address the primary issues that need to be considered.
LIQUID TO BE MEASURED
This is the most important information to consider, as it effects case material of construction, rotor type, bearing materials & seals. Tuthill Transfer Systems focuses on providing quality metering solutions for the following fluid groups for select model configurations.
Abbreviations: LV=Low Viscosity, HV=High Viscosity, AA=Anodized Aluminium, SS= Stainless Steel, PPS=Polyphenylene Sufide resin.
It is critical to consider the actual flow rate of the application. If the flow rate in the system fluctuates, the minimum, normal, and maximum values will be needed for full evaluation and model selection.
a.) The flow rate for the application should be between 50 and 80% of the rated capacity of the meter for optimum lifetime of the product.
b.) Make sure the flow rate for the application is within the operating range of the meter. With operating temperature and viscosity characteristics of the fluid, determine the recommended maximum operating flow arte for the various meter options/sizes (TABLE 3A and 3B) and choose the meter that fits the desired flow rate. See "Sizing Example" on page 5.
Viscosity is the liquids resistance to flow. The higher the resistance, the greater the /P across the flow meter, and the greater the wear factor on the flow meter. The primary consideration with regard to viscosity is it's affect on recommended flow rates. In general, the higher the viscosity of a fluid, the lower the recommended operating flow rate for a particular meter. Refer to TABLE 3A (TM METERS) and TABLE 3B (TS Meters).
All applications with operating temperatures higher than +250 (+120C) are subject to individual approval by TTS (The Wave Form pulser is limited to + 125C = +257F). Operating temperature range impacts flow meter pressure rating as outlined in section 3 (Liquid Viscosity). Other considerations:
Low Ambient and/ or Liquid Temperature
High Ambient and/or Liquid Temperature
Conditions of wide and instantaneous changes in fluid temperatures should be avoided. the "thermal Impact" can affect seals and bearings adversely.
The value shown on TTS Precision Meter Specification sheets applies at a base temperature of 100F (38C). At higher operating temperature, flow meter pressure rating is reduced. Refer to TABLE 5.
If the meter is purchased without a register, it is important to consider whether or not the pulse resolution of the meter is compatible with the register or other component (PLC or fluid management system) that is to be used with the meter. Make sure the pulse ON time is long enough for the register to read the signal (See TABLE 3A, 3B, or 3C).
Truck applications require special consideration with regard to air elimination. There are two primary types of applications to consider; trucks with pumps and trucks with gravity flow.
Trucks with Pumps
Commonly used for retail delivery, these vehicles can have from 500 - 3,000 gallon (2,000-10,000 litre) tank capacity. While smaller vehicles might have a single-compartment tank, most larger vehicles have multiple compartments. In tank truck systems subject to W&M regulations, an air eliminator is always required. If the system must satisfy SPLI-Compartments Tes ng, the vehicle design (tanks, manifold, and pump) becomes a factor in the efficiency of the air eliminator. If the system is not designed to minimize the amount of air drawn into the pump, the task of air separation becomes more difficult.
