Disadvantages of Turbine Flow Meters

– Limited choice of materials
– Only for low viscosities
– Moving parts, wear
– Sensitive to contamination
– Axial flow totalizers are flow profile sensitive
– Inlet and outlet sections required (not for rotating vane meters)
– Affected by overloading and quick changes at high differential pressure, danger of over speeding
– Vibration sensitive
