Dr. Eddy Turbulent Flow Meter
Available from Burger & Brown Engineering, Inc.
Using FCI Technology, Dr. Eddy displays the condition of the water as it relates to flow efficiency: laminar flow, transient flow, or turbulent flow.
Dr. Eddy has four scales built into the meter: three scales for FCI and one scale for flow rate. FCI Scales are selectable and correspond to cooling line inside diameter: 1/4”, 3/8”, or 1/2”. Flow rate scale can be referenced quickly for additional functionality.
Water and Energy Conservation
Not just a flowmeter, but a tool to help conserve cooling water resources. In molding applications, many mold operators try to maximize the flow of water through their cooling systems to ensure turbulent flow. Doing so increases energy costs for pumping more water than necessary through the system. This practice may also limit the amount of cooling water available for additional presses on the same cooling circuit.
