TCS - Bulk Flow Meters
TCS is known throughout international markets for their high quality Piston and Positive Displacement meters. Various local and international approvals are in place notably SABS, OIML, NMI etc.
Each flow meter is built from stock and completely assembled and tested by highly skilled members of the production team who strive for excellence in workmanship and quality. All equipment leaving TCS's production facility is inspected that it meets the strict set quality standards.
TCS's meter range is highly competitive in the Southern Africa market and often a more cost effective product than opposition brands such as LC Liquid Controls, FMC Smith Meters, Avery Hardoll. The Rotary Positive Displacement Meters are also far more reliable and simpler than other methods such as Coriolis, Ultrasonic, Turbine and Magnetic flow meters.
The company specialises in providing innovative & reliable fluid measurement products for the following markets - Refined fuels, LPG, Aviation, Fertilizer & Agri-Chemical, Industrial Chemical, Marine, Renewable Fuels & DEF.
700 Series Rotary Positive Displacement Flow Meter
The TCS 700 series rotary flow meter has a simple and efficient meter design consisting of a housing and three rotors that rotate in unison within the measuring chamber. The absence of wear, from no metal to metal contact within the chamber, eliminates any deterioration in accuracy and provides long life service. The rotors are supported by bearings inserted into two bearing plates, where at the end of each rotor shaft is a timing gear. The timed rotation between each rotor is then transferred through the calibration adjuster to the register, giving a consistent and superior measurement of accuracy.
The TCS 700 rotary flow meter combines excellent accuracy with low pressure drop. The compact size and lightweight design offers minimal maintenance and long service life. The meter is built with advanced materials of construction for a broad range of measurement applications and is accompanied by a full selection of accessories and electronic registration.
682 Series Piston Flow Meter
The 682 reciprocating piston flow meter is a true positive displacement meter that has a unique inline design consisting of three reciprocating pistons operating within their respective measuring chambers. Each piston works in a manner similar to an automobile engine. The pistons are fitted to a wobble plate, which has a shaft extending from its upper surface and a valve pivot attached beneath it.
The valve pivot drives a sliding valve from piston to piston as a known amount of product flows through each cylindrical bore, controlling the sequence of events in a smooth mechanical motion. This smooth mechanical motion is then transferred through the drive shaft to the register.
The TCS 682 reciprocating piston flow meter combines outstanding accuracy (0.1% of flow rate) with one of the widest turndown ratios in the industry 250:1. The rugged industrial design is tolerant to changing viscosities, temperatures and liquids with suspensions and solids.
