    Substitute Flowmeter for the Liquidator

    After upgrading to a needle valve, I want a better readout so I can make fine adjustments . Does anybody know of a better quality meter or know what the range of rates I'd need to cover with a replacement?

    I figured it out and it appears to be 0-5 cc/min I believe.
    I looked for flowmeters and found several, but they're pretty expensive. That's why I never got one.
    If you find one, please let us know.

    5cc/min would be pretty low. About a drop every 12 seconds.

    I may try closing my inlet float and seeing how far the liquid level drops in a minute to make a guess at it.

    Now that I think about it, I may be wrong about the max flow. I'll try to find some of my notes from where I ran a flow through it. Basically I just ran a flow through it with the float at the top and measured it. I can't redo it since I don't have the LQ anymore.
