SKC Field Rotameters. These small and lightweight, single ball rotameters represent a new and durable design of portable air flowmeters.
These small and lightweight, single ball rotameters represent a new and durable design of portable air flowmeters. SKC Field Rotameters are crafted of see-through acrylic with tapered hose connectors attached to solid brass fittings.
A removable section of Tygon® tubing with a Luer taper adapter is included. A float ball is clearly visible behind decaled graduations on the rectangular face. The easy-to-read scales are ideal for performing routine verifications of air flow easily in the field with reproducible results.

Low operational cost
Provisions for panel mounting
Multiple Flow Ranges
Max temperature of 150F (65C)
Max pressure 100psig
SKC Dual Ball Rotameters. Variable area flow meters that provide field accuracy in an easy to read instrument.
Rotameters are variable area flowmeters that provide field accuracy in an easy-to-read instrument. The principle of operation is simple: air flow passes through a vertical, tapered tube and pushes a ball or float having a diameter slightly less than the smaller tube end.
As the ball rises, the clearance between the ball and the tube wall increases. The ball becomes stationary when the diameter of the tube is large enough to allow the total air flow past the ball. The flow rate is determined by noting the engraved scale on the tube at the position of the stabilized ball. An important feature of the SKC dual ball rotameter is the use of two float balls: a light (black ball) for indicating low flows and a heavy (white ball) for indicating high flows.
The black ball is read until it is off scale, then the white ball is read. Two float balls give the broadest flow ranges with the highest accuracy possible in a single rotameter, The two balls give an effective reading scale length of approximately 12 inches in a shorter rotameter. Note: Low flow rotameters can only be used with pulsation-free pumps.
