NUFLO turbine flowmeters indicate flow rate and measure total throughput of a liquid line. As liquid flows through the meter and over the rotor, the rotor turns at a speed that is directly proportional to the flow rate. A magnetic pickup senses the rotor blades as they pass and generates an electrical (sine wave) signal. These electrical pulses are then transmitted to the flow measurement readout equipment.
Cameron offers turbine flowmeters in a variety of end connections and accuracy levels. Typical applications are:
Flanged End Connection
Turbine flowmeters with flanged end connections are available in both raised-face (RF) models and ring-type joint (RTJ) models. Flanged materials can be carbon steel or stainless steel. All flanged NUFLO meters are equipped with slip-oflanges, which are then welded to the outside of the meter rather than being welded to the end of the meter body. Thus, the flange never comes into contact with the fluid being measured. The flanges are designed to mate with ANSI B16.5 flanges.
Grooved End Connection
Flowmeters with grooved end connections are available in 7/8-in. through 8-in. sizes.
EZ-IN® End Connection
Series BF turbine flowmeters with EZ-IN connections provide a cost-effective alternative to typical flanged-meter applications. Series BF meters with EZ-IN connections offer the accuracy, rugged construction, and maintenancefree operation of conventional NUFLO flowmeters plus the following advantages:
Lower installation cost.
Less expensive than a conventional, flanged meter.
Spreader nuts enable easy removal and inspection.
The raised-face EZ-IN meter will mate to any flange rated ANSI 150# to 1500#. The ring-joint (RTJ) version will mate to ANSI 900#, 1500# or 2500# RTJ flange. Specify flange type when ordering.
CE-marked 8 x 8-in. EZ-IN RF requires special centering rings.
WECO® 1502 Union End Connection
Flowmeters with 1502 end connections are commonly used in high-pressure oilwell service applications. Meter sizes 1”, 11/2” and 2” have 2” union end connections with a wing nut on one end and thread on the other end. The 3" meters have 3" union end connections with the option of a wing nut on one end and thread on the other, or threads on both ends. All 1502 union end meters have two pickup adapters.
The NUFLO™ 1502 WECO® Union Liquid Turbine Flowmeter incorporates a tungsten-carbide shaft and bearings to withstand the rugged conditions of the oilfield environment. Over the years, this flowmeter has earned an unsurpassed reputation for with-standing sever punishment while maintaining operational and measurement integrity. WECO union turbine flowmeters indicate flowrate and measure total throughput of a liquid line.
The Nuflo Cameron EZ-in style turbine meter is installed as a wafer between two user supplied flanges, offering economical alternatives and significant application advantages to conventional flange to flange, victaulic or threaded connections. This line offers all stainless steel precision machined components with CD4MCu and/or 416 stainless steel rotors in line sizes from 3/8" through 8.0" and the same Nuflo Cameron Measurement reliability and accuracy. Pressure ratings to 3700 PSI can be achieved with appropriate mating flanges. Note that MWP is dependant on user supplied flanges.
Installation kits and magnetic pick up sold separately.
Nuflo Cameron Measurement OEM EZ-in repair kits are manufactured with the expected quality of this reknowned brand. Repair Kits include two each rotor supports, 1 each rotor and 2 each retaining rings or replacement screws as required.

The meter offers all stainless steel precision machined components with CD4MCu and/or 416 stainless steel rotors in line sizes from 3/8" through 10.0". End connection is NPT threaded standard, however other ends like victaulic, flanged, or sanitary are available on special request.
Nuflo Cameron turbine repair kits purchased here are original OEM equipment. Manufactuered from stainless steel, the kits include 2 each rotor supports, 1 each rotor and 2 retaining rings. Note that the table below presents the information for the 1502 Weco style meter and standard threaded inline type meters.
Nuflo magnetic pick up flow meter sensors are active RF pickups driven by an external RF (carrier) signal conditioner. Together they complete an oscillating circuit. The output of this circuit is amplitude modulated when a ferrous, 316 stainless steel or aluminum object passes by the pickup coil. This change in modulation of the carrier frequency is converted into a square wave pulse by the signal conditioner for computing and/or further processing.
