MiniWater Replacement Snap Heads

3 Week Del.

Quick Overview

The MiniWater turbine flow meters are designed with replaceable snap on turbines that can be replaced on site quickly without any need for recalibration or adjustment. MiniWater replacement snap heads should be of the same original size and flow range as the original probes. A table is provided on this page to allow you to select the correct replacement snap head for your MiniWater probe. Snap heads are suitable for MiniWater 20, 6, 60 and 64 probes.

Snap heads for turbine anemometer MiniWater Probes.

The MiniWater probes are designed with a snap head turbine anemometer with a separate probe handle that contains all the electronics. The probes include a synthetic plastic construction snap head with an Aluminium turbine that are suitable for measuring liquid flows.

The MiniWater probes can be used in open channel water course and as such can be damaged by debris or plant and wildlife getting into the turbine. The snap head turbine design allow the turbine to be replaced on site to continue measurements using the same probe.

Probes are available in two sizes, Micro and Mini with two different flow rate ranges, 0-5m/s and 0-10m/s. All the probes work in the same way to generate a frequency output each time the metal blade passes the probes handle. The frequency of rotation is virtually proportional to the water flow velocity and largely independant of pressure, temperature and density. The difference sizes of snap heads generate different amounts of pulses for the different flow rates and this means that when the snap head is replaced, the new snap head should be the same size and flow rate as the old one. Failure to match the snap heads to the calibrated probe heads will result in inaccuracies in the output and therefore readings on the MC20 display, other loggers, will be incorrect.

The MiniWater sensors are all designed as snap-on head versions. The snap-head fixing system makes it very simple to fit a new impeller to the flow probe, whilst being secure enough not to be removed whilst in the water. Being able to replace a damaged probe quickly and easily saves losing time and money for a water flow monitoring application. To replace a damaged snap head, the old snap head should be pulled directly from the handle and the replacement head pushed directly on to the handle. The original calibration is retained and no adjustments should be required.

A selection of specific snap-on heads are available in the following MiniWater versions:

Snap Head Principle

  • MiniWater 20
  • MiniWater 6
  • MiniWater 60
  • MiniWater 64

A snap-on head can only be replaced by a snap-on head of the same size for the same model, i.e. Micro for Micro, Mini for Mini and Macro for Macro. Trying to use this MiniWater snap-on head for any other anemometer, will cause the probe to lose its specification regarding accuracy. Please refer to the table below to ensure the snap head matches your original probe.
