Koolance is a recognized leader in computer and electronic liquid cooling solutions. Providing the most professional products available, they cater to those who desire advanced, silent cooling technology without the hassle of consumer kits. With research beginning in 1995 and incorporation in 2000, Koolance has become well-known for innovation.
Today we will be looking at the Koolance INS-FM18D Coolant Flow Meter with Display. Flow Indicators and Flow Meters have become an important accessory in high end liquid cooling systems. While flow indicators do give a general sense of coolant flow, only a flow meter can accurately show coolant flow. The INS-FM18D is designed to be a standalone unit and is small enough to be mounted almost anywhere.
Koolance's take on the INS-FM18D
INS-FM18D combines an LCD display with Koolance's stainless steel flow meter in a small footprint. The display shows flow rate in liters per minute (LPM) only. A 12VDC connection is required for power. Primary materials are a stainless steel body with nickel-plated brass G 1/4 BSPP threads.
The Koolance INS-FM18D flow meter uses a magnetic reed contact switch which responds to internal impeller rotation. It is powered by 12V DC. The integrated LED display reports flow rate in liters per minute (LPM). Residual air in the liquid will reduce flow meter accuracy.
