Badger Meter's Blancett B1500 Series Turbine Flow Meter is designed for harsh environments such as the oil and gas and petrochemical industries and helps mitigate output variance caused by viscosity fluctuations due to changes in fluid temperature. CourteBadger Meter's Blancett B1500 Series turbine flow meter is designed for clean, filtered liquid flow applications in precision industrial processes such as batching, blending, filling, or general flow measurement in harsh environments such as the oil and gas and petrochemical industries. B1500 Series turbine flow meters feature mechanical linearity to increase useable flow range and help mitigate output variance caused by viscosity fluctuations due to changes in fluid temperature. Using a helical rotor design with high-performance ceramic ball bearings, B1500 meters are able to achieve minimal pressure drop. The ceramic bearings are also lighter and more tolerant to extreme temperatures and are designed to produce less friction than stainless steel ball bearings.

The B1500 flow meters are coupled with B3000 flow monitors to provide a flow metering solution with multiple local read and system integration options. Flow rates and totals are presented simultaneously via a crisp dot-matrix LCD display and/or transmitted to a user interface via Modbus RTU, a 4 to 20 mA analog output or totalizing pulse output. The B1500 Series meter is constructed of 316 stainless steel and is available with either ANSI flange or NPT end fittings. B1500 Series turbine flow meters come calibrated and traceable to NIST standards.

Annual Salary Survey

After two years of economic concerns, manufacturing leaders once again have homed in on the single biggest issue facing their operations:

It's the workers—or more specifically, the lack of workers.

The 2017 Plant Engineering Salary Survey looks at not just what plant managers make, but what they think. As they look across their plants today, plant managers say they don’t have the operational depth to take on the new technologies and new challenges of global manufacturing.
