UK flowmeter specialist Litre Meter ( has supplied 500 Digmesa ( flowmeters to Tudor Tea and Coffee ( for use in its coffee vending machines.

Digmesa meters are used worldwide in vending machines where drinks must be served in precisely measured quantities.

The meters offer a measuring accuracy of +/- 0.25 per cent, even in long term operation and across a temperature range from -10 to +120°C. The design is based on detection of electronic pulses generated by an impeller turned by the fluid flow.

Different materials, bearings and electrical properties can be supplied to meet the needs of different applications, including variants that can be used to automatically switch off pumps or other equipment if flows fall below specified levels.

The Digmesa product line complements the range of flowmeters built by Litre Meter in its own premises in Buckingham. The company offers a broad range of metering technologies suitable for virtually every liquid, gas or steam measurement application and has particular expertise in measuring low flow rates.

Charles Wemyss of Litre Meter said: “Litre Meter’s strength has traditionally been in flowmeters for particularly demanding situations, often with meters almost custom-designed and built for particular applications. Digmesa gives our customers access to an off-the-shelf range of accurate and robust meters which meet the needs of a vast range of drink vending, blending and dispensing applications.

“These Digmesa meters ensure that Tudor Tea and coffee vending machines dispense the carefully roasted coffee in precisely controlled amounts to ensure a consistent cup of coffee every time.”
