FS 100 Flow Straightener for Agricultural and Turf Irrigation

Advanced Flow Straightening with Propeller Technology

FS100 Flow Straightener
Farmers, irrigation dealers and water district engineers will find the McCrometer Mc Propeller Meter and the FS100 Flow Straightener are the ideal solution for water metering programs in agriculture and turf irrigation. The Mc Propeller's advanced design delivers highly accurate liquid flow measurement in a rugged space-saving design that reduces installation costs, offers long-life and requires minimal maintenance.

Eliminate upstream and downstream pipe

The FS100 Flow Straightener provides breakthrough flow straightening technology that virtually eliminates the upstream / downstream straight pipe runs typically required in existing or new flow meter applications.

Requiring only 1.5 straight pipe diameters upstream and 0-0.5 downstream, the FS100 Flow Straightener when installed with the McPropeller slashes typical installation piping and labor costs by more than 50 percent, which makes it the right fit in both retrofit and brand new installations.

How It Works:

McCrometer's Mc SpaceSaver Meter consists of a built-in flow straightener, which conditions water flow, combined with the popular Mc Propeller Flow Meter -- the irrigation industry's favorite.

  • The Mc SpaceSaver Meter is designed with a unique approach. The Mc SpaceSaver's flow straightener is a cone-shaped device that sits upstream from the meter and conditions the fluid to remove flow irregularities prior to measurement.
  • The conditioned flow supports high accuracy flow measurement and virtually eliminates the need for space-consuming, costly upstream/downstream straight-pipe runs.
  • The propeller meter consists of a rotating device, a helical- shaped impeller, positioned in the flow stream to measure fluid flow rates.
  • When fluid passes through the meter, it contacts the impeller causing it to spin. The impeller's rotational velocity is directly proportional to the velocity of the flow. Learn More.
