Flow Meters Applications

Ethanol Plants

Ethanol Plants America's top automobile manufacturers approve, and even recommend, fuel enriched with up to 10% ethanol and hybrids designed to run on E85 (85% ethanol and 15% gasoline) which is the cleanest burning renewable fuel today. RCM Industries is proud to be a part of the effort to clean up the environment in providing flow measurement products in the production of ethanol. RCM flow meters monitor seal water, ethanol, water / alcohol mixture and fusel oil keeping production processes on line and on time.

Saturated Steam

Saturated steam (Dry) is used in a variety of industrial application such as industrial heating, steam driven turbines in the production of electricity, refineries and chemical plant just to name a few. Saturated steam happens when water reaches it's boiling point and vaporized. Saturated steam has an advantage due to it's very efficient mode of heat transfer. Monitoring saturated steam in the sterilization process is extremely critical to ensure consistent cleaning of equipment. Our saturated steam flow meter pressures are limited to 120 psi (350°F) they are constructed with SST bellows, EPR seals and inverted indicator assembly.

Radars, TV & Satellite Systems

RCM flow meters monitor critical flow measurements of 50/50 ethylene glycol or propylene glycol and distilled water for high-efficient liquid cooled TV transmitters. Our flow meters are fitted with reed switches to protect equipment against low and high flow conditions. This technique ensures a direct correlation between the flow rate indicator and the flow switch for ease in configuring a safety interlock or control circuit. These switches are hermetically sealed and epoxy potted for a tamper resistant switch. Each switch is independently adjustable as normally open or normally closed contacts further enhancing the switches capability.

Pre-Conditioned Air Handling Units

Our flow meters are also used on water cooled chillers used in the Laser, Industrial, Scientific and Semiconductor industry to control various processes. Chillers provide advanced thermal management solutions in various processess Jetway Air handling units provide cool air flow during pre-flight and loading of aircraft at all major airports dramatically reducing fuel and operating cost.

Beverage Industry

RCM Industries supplies flow meters to several beverage bottling plants used for blending processes, carbo - coolers, carbon dioxide injection equipment, flow -mixers, and beverage prep systems. Typically flow meters applied to carbo - coolers are 316 stainless steel construction for corrosion resistance. As you can see in the pictures to the right the RCM flow meters plays an important roll in monitoring CO2 flow in the beverage blending process.
