Radar Cooling Flowmeter Applications
Hoffer supplies multiple flow meters and the model CAT3 smart signal transmitters to Lockheed Martin for radar cooling flow applications, as seen in this photo.
These flow systems are used on the Aegis weapon system and are specifically used on the AN/SPY-1 multi-function, phased-array radar system.
This high-powered (four megawatts) radar can perform search, track, and missile guidance functions simultaneously.
These radar systems are highly flexible and installed on 10 different classes of navy vessels throughout the world.
The Hoffer flow systems used on this radar cooling application have been shocked, vibration and EMI tested and qualified to various MIL standards for shipboard use.

Radar Cooling Flowmeter Applications from Hoffer Flow Controls
Hoffer Turbine Flowmeters are available in a broad range of standard and special materials. The wide range of construction options allows for selecting the optimum combination of useful range, corrosion resistance, and operating life for a particular application. A low mass rotor design allows for a rapid dynamic response which permits the turbine flowmeter to be used in pulsating flow applications.
