Question
Can the paddlewheel (impeller) style flow sensors be used in a pipe that may not be full at all times?
Summary
Paddlewheel (impeller) flow sensor installation
Answer
The flow pipe must be full at all times when using a paddlewheel (impeller) flow sensor. The flow rate is calculated by assuming that the pipe is completely full. If the pipe is not completely full, the flow readings will be inaccurate.
