Why is Polcon® the Best?
All of these products have been designed, developed, produced, manufactured, and used by M.E. Simpson Co., Inc. Nothing can beat the proficiency or built in level of accuracy that comes from equipment designed by the people who use it, which is why Polcon® products are the best option when seeking flow and pressure monitoring equipment.
With more than 30 years of experience measuring hydraulic parameters, M.E. Simpson Co., Inc. is uniquely qualified to manufacture its own brand of flow and pressure monitoring equipment. Polcon® Products are designed by the people who use them daily, making them practical, reliable, and accurate.
Polcon® Sentry Recorder is a unique, solid state, microprocessor-type recorder that senses and records differential pressure obtained from a Pitot rod, which is then used to determine the flow rate through a pipe or water-main. The recorder can be programmed to monitor flow for short or long-term testing, is self-contained, light-weight, and fits into the standard 20.25” manhole entrance. It’s portability makes it ideal for real-world applications.
The Polcon® Pitot Rod is designed to accurately measure the velocity of flow in a closed-pipe. The Pitot rod consists of an insertion tube that is placed through the cross section of the pipe in the exact center to measure the average mean-flow velocity. Constructed with high-grade brass, Polcon® Pitot Rods are durable and accurate, and the “O” ring packing, and locking device provide a safe and leak-proof installation.
The Polcon® Pipe Caliper is used to accurately determine the inside pipe diameter, which is critical to determining the flow-rate through a pipe. The inside diameter is always measured to the nearest 1/16 - inch, for accuracy. The unique design permits the accurate determination of the pipe diameter even if the tap extends through the pipe wall. Constructed with high-grade brass and steel, Polcon® Pipe Calipers are both durable and accurate. The “O” ring packing, and locking device provide a safe and leak-proof installation.
The Polcon® Pacer is a state of the art pressure recorder that senses and records pressure data, ranging from -15psi to 300psi, and is ideal for short or long-term trend analysis. The recorder can be programmed to monitor pressure for short or long-term testing, is self-contained, light-weight, and fits into the standard 20.25” manhole entrance. It can be adapted to any style of fitting.
