As an engineer, you're challenged to solve problems that often seem impossible to others. FLOMEC® engineers are challenged everyday to do the same. At Great Plains Industries, Inc.®, every product is engineered and built to meet our 'triple standard test' of delivering better performance and higher quality at a lower cost.Whether you need to measure for water, gasoline, chemicals, dairy, engine oils, transmission fluids, and various industrial liquids, FLOMEC products are engineered to perform better.
The FLOMEC® QS100 Ultrasonic Turf Irrigation Flow Sensor has NO moving parts and NO flow restrictions, making it nearly INDESTRUCTIBLE.
It’s SO ACCURATE it senses a dripping faucet. The QS100 measures water flow rates 5X LOWER than competing flow sensors. It literally senses leaky valves, blockages, and other problems.
This 1-inch flow sensor is not only economically priced but is also excellent for commercial and residential irrigation flow detection and measurement of small leaks and line breaks.
The ability to detect flows down to 0.22 GPM makes it ideal for low-flow drip zones. In addition to its
low-flow capabilities, ultra-sonic technology means no moving parts to wear out or fail when winterizing
systems using compressed air.

FLOMEC’s QS200 IS THE MOST ACCURATE WATER FLOW SENSOR IN THE IRRIGATION INDUSTRY
Why? The QS200 Turf Irrigation Flow Sensor measures water flow
rates 5x lower than other flow sensors on the
market AND offers extended leak detection down to 0.1
feet per second. That means it can detect leaking valves, blockages, and other hidden irrigation
system problems that other flow sensors can’t.
HERE’S THE PROBLEM WITH MOST FLOW SENSORS IN COMMERCIAL IRRIGATION APPLICATIONS.
Paddlewheel, nutating disc, and other standard flow sensors have mechanical parts that must start moving before the sensor can detect any flow. For the mechanical parts to begin moving, the flow rate must be high enough to overcome friction.
That may not be a problem with some applications, where mechanical flow sensors work well, but commercial irrigation is different. The low flows typical in drip lines and bubblers often aren’t enough to get those mechanical parts moving.
So what happens? The sensor reads “no flow” even when there IS flow in the pipe – it’s just below that sensor’s ability to see it – that’s a RED HERRING! Getting a “No Flow” reading could hide small system leaks. These small leaks add up to significant losses over time.

The 6, 8, 10, and 12-inch saddles are designed exclusively for the QS200 Insertion Ultrasonic
Flowmeter. Supporting commercial and agricultural irrigation applications on large size pipes, the QS200
will accurately provide the information your controller needs to
display the flow rate and accumulated total.
Designed for above and below grade applications, such as irrigation, municipal and underground
monitoring where the flow rates are between 0.1 to 15 fps (0.03 to 4.6 m/s) and temperatures
below 140° F (60° C). QS200 inserts are supplied with two single conductors, 18 AWG solid copper wire leads that are 36 inches (914.4 mm) in length with UL Style 116666 direct burial insulation.

The QSE Mag Series is a dependable highly accurate electromagnetic flowmeter designed for flow and usage monitoring in commercial applications.
The Noryl™ housing and flow tube offer a lightweight, easy-to-install Mag Meter that is resistant to heat (210°F [99°C]) and compatible with many water-based liquid solutions. FOR INSTALLATION ON PLASTIC PIPE ONLY.
The QSE Mag Meter monitors flow rate and total flow in a wide variety of applications including HVAC, Turf/ Irrigation, and other water reclamation applications.
The QSE is NSF61 Certified for those applications where potable water regulations must be met.
The QSE Mag comes in seven line sizes: ½”, ¾”, 1”, 1.5”, 2”, 3”, & 4” – FOR INSTALLATION ON PLASTIC PIPE ONLY.
Our mag meter provides a low investment and operating costs. It is non-intrusive with no moving parts to wear out, maintenance, repair costs are low and it tolerates high flows without damage.
Our accurate magnetic flowmeter has a slightly modified bore that permits unobstructed flow and minimizes flow disturb stances and straight pipe requirements

FLOMEC® Insertion Meters are cost-effective stainless steel meters for measuring the flow of water,
fuels, and other low viscosity liquids in pipe sizes 1.5” – 100” (10 – 2500 mm). Insertion Meters are a
flexible, economical method to measure large flow rates with small pressure drops and low installation
costs, with most applications battery powered with a FLOMEC totalizer. Applications include HVAC, hot
and cold water, fire systems, water distribution (management and treatment), boiler feed water,
wastewater and hydrant flow testing.
