Energy-Conserving Flow Meter To Be Marketed By Gems Sensors

Gems S e n s o r s Division of Transamerica Delaval Inc. has acquired exclusive rights to develop and market a new line of liquid flow meters, it was announced by Milton Aron, general m a n a g e r of the Farmington, Conn.-based level and flow switch manufacturer.

The energy-saving flow meters work on a "fluid conservation through measurement" principle, according to Dan Sabatino, flow meter inventor and patent holder who is working as part of the research, development, and engineering team at Gems. The flow meter is designed for "slow" flow applications from 1/100 gallon up to 300 gallons per hour. Unlike analog devices, it operates on a constant digital pulse output, Mr.

Sabatino added.

"We have already started preparing p r o t o t y p e s for various markets in preparation for product introduction later this year," Mr. Aron stated.

Preliminary inquiries should be addressed to Milton Aron, Gems Sensors Division of Transamerica Delaval Inc., Dept. MR, Farmington Industrial Park, Farmington, Conn. 06032.
