Introducing the IC-LPM Series of Paddlewheel Flow Meters

icenta Controls in the UK has introduced a new range of industrial inline paddlewheel flow meters that offers considerable benefits for continuous liquid flow applications including temperate and environmental control

The IC-LPM series of paddlewheel meters provides accurate flow rate monitoring over the range of 0.5 to 1200 l/min with standard nominal sizes up to 50 mm. A simple yet robust stainless steel construction offers excellent corrosion resistance and a versatile design with custom options can be easily adapted to meet varying flow monitoring requirements: additional meter sizes and flow ranges, threaded or flanged connections, a selection of outputs, flow instruments and displays, a choice of 3 temperature ratings (up to 120°C, 230°C or 350°C) and pressures up to 100 bar or greater by request.


The IC-LPM paddlewheel meter features a freely supported paddlewheel impeller mounted on a bearing and pin assembly. As the fluid passes through the meter body it causes the paddlewheel to rotate at a speed that is proportional, within a small level of uncertainty, to the stream flow velocity over a 10:1 linear flow range. The rotational speed is measured by a magnetic pick-up housed in the probe assembly.

IC-LPM meters are an ideal replacement for many turbine meters: they offer a lower pressure drop and reduced risk of contamination from liquids with suspended solids, whilst achieving a good level of linearity/repeatability. Typical applications include chilled water circuit monitoring, oil based temperature controllers & environmental control.

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
