The sign accompanying the flow meter. It reads

F-1 Flow Meter

This flow meter measures the flow rate of liquid oxygen (LOX) within the F-1. LOX flows through the cluster of tubes, which straightens the flow. The flow then causes the turbine to spin. The stronger the flow, the faster the turbine spins. Flow rate is determined by measuring how fast the turbine spins.
