RK1650 Series is a completely renewed model of existing KOFLOC RK1600R with sophisticated design to fit sophisticated laboratory or plant equipment.

Variable area flow meters operate at a constant delta pressure (Δp) and the area changes with the flowrate. The area will increase as the flowrate through the meter increases to preserve a constant Delta Pressure (Δp).

The most common design of variable area meter is the cone-and-float type, which is also known as a rotameter. The basic design of a variable area meter is a tapered tube (usually glass) containing a self-centring float that is pushed up by the flow and pulled down by gravity.

At higher flow rates the float rises to increase the area between the tube and the float and maintain a constant Δp.
