Flow Measurement in F1 Racing Cars

High pressure flowmeters from Titan Enterprises have, over the last decade, been widely used in the hydraulic test systems of F1 racing cars to measure fluid flow. A high-performance engine company also uses Titan flow meters to monitor the oil flow lubricating its turbo units on the test bench.

Accurate Flow Rate Measurement of Viscous Liquids

Titan Enterprises’ OG range of Oval Gear flowmeters provide the perfect solution for accurate measurement of the flow of viscous liquids and lubricating fluids. Unlike other flowmeters, measurement accuracy with oval gear devices actually improves as the liquid viscosity increases, from a nominal 1% to around 0.1% of flow rate at higher viscosities.
