Precision machined from solid acrylic Used to indicate or manually control air or gas flow from .1 SCFH to 100 SCFM or water flow from .6 GPH to 20 GPM Dwyer Visi-Float flowmeter bodies are cut and precision machined from solid, clear acrylic plastic blocks. This contruction not only produces a handsome finished product, but permits complete visual inspection. As a result, the Dwyer Visi-Float flowmeters are espcially popular for medical and laboratory equipment applications. Scales are easy to read - The front scale location and white background provides excellent visibility. The direct reading scales are hot stamped into the plastic and will not wear off. Mid-range calibration is established with a master flowmeter. Accuracy is +/-5% of full scale for VFA models, +/-3% for VFB, and +/- 2% for VFC. Scales average 2" long on the VFA models, 4" long on the VFB and 5" long on VFC. Durable and attractive construction - The machined acrylic bodies of the Dwyer Visi-Float flowmeters are practically unbreakable. Fabrication is backed by over 60 years of experience in acrylic instrument machining. The tapered bore is precision machined to a smooth surface that provides perfect visibility of the indicating float. The VFA and VFB models are available with either brass or stainless steel inlet and outlet connections and are tapped for 1/8"NPT thread. VFB models 85 and 86 have either 1/4" back or 3/8" end connections. The VFC models have PVC 1" NPT female connections and VFCII units are equipped with acetal thermoplastic 1"NPT male fittings. VFCII fittings also include hex wrench flats to prevent stripped threads. Precision metering valves in brass or stainless steel are available for most VFA and VFB models. VFC models, intended for use with external metering valves, include a stainless steel guide rod and large diameter float for excellent stability and visibility at higher flow rates. Two options are offered for VFCII units, specifically designed for applications requiring FDA approved materials. Choose 316 stainless steel float and guide rod and Viton® "O" rings. Easy installation - All Visi-Float flowmeters have metal mounting inserts on read for panel mounting. They can also be supported directly by system piping. Viton® is a registered trademark of DuPont Dow Elastomers
