What is K-Factor?

K-Factor is a turbine meter factor which represent the total number of pulses equivalent to one unit of volume flow.

This term is used in turbine meter since it has rotor blade which revolve as fluid pass through.

The angular speed of rotation is proportional to the volumetric flow rate and each time the rotor blade is closing the the magnetic pick-up coil, it generates the voltage pulse.
