Flow Meters for Uponor Manifolds

Two styles of visual flow meters are available for separate purchase with Uponor’s TruFLOW heating manifolds. Manifolds with balancing valves or flow control allow users and installers to provide different circuits with different flow rates. Most radiant heat designs call for flow rates below 0.8 gallons per minute (GPM), making the A2640015 flow meters adequate. They display flow rates between 0.15 and 0.8 GPM. For TruFLOW installations with higher flow requirements, use the A2640027 flow meters, which go from 0.25 to 2.0 GPM.

Visual flow meters attach to the return side of a heating manifold and display the flow that is going through a particular circuit. They cannot function if they are positioned upside down. Visual flow meters come included with Uponor’s EP heating manifolds. See for more Uponor products.
