People are naturally drawn to the low price alternative when trying to solve a problem. When you are talking about PD flow meters, that choice would be a gear style meter. Gear meters might be the answer that you seek, but let's compare them to a piston meter first - before we fall in love with their lower price.
Max offers the lowest flow rate capabilities, with an ability to measure below 1 cc/min. Our meters were designed for a wide operating range allowing one Max meter to replace several competitive meters.
When it comes to output, Max transmitters produce up to 1000 pulses/cc to give a finer degree of control. Max Meters also have a fast response to flow changes and allow for user adjustable dither and damping settings.
Max gear meters offer a low flow rate capability, measuring flows down to 15 cc/min and with a wide operating range one meter can replace several. Other benefits include bi-directional capability with a fast response to change in direction and user adjustable dither and damping settings.
Children from the St. John's second grade class in Healdsburg, CA thanked Max Machinery for a donation made to help support their science fair earlier this month. It's great to see future scientists get excited about their projects! We believe in supporting the efforts of educators to make science accessible and fun.
