Propane flow meter refers to a flow meter that can measure gaseous or liquid propane. Propane is also generally referred to as liquefied petroleum gas (LPG)).
Propane is usually gaseous, but it is usually transported after being compressed into a liquid state. After crude oil or natural gas is processed, propane can be obtained from the refined oil. Propane is often used as a fuel for engines, grilled food and household heating systems.

Propane VS liquefied gas
Propane is a by-product of processing natural gas or refined crude oil.
The difference between propane and liquefied gas lies in the different components and uses.
Propane is a single gas, and its burning calories are greater than that of liquefied petroleum gas. There should be no black smoke when it burns. The flame is light blue. It is often used as a fuel for engines, barbecued food and household heating systems.
Liquefied gas is a mixture, the main component is one or two of propane, propylene, butane, butene. It is also mixed with a small amount of pentane, pentene and traces of sulfide impurities. The flame turns red when burned.
It is used as a raw material for petrochemical industry and a solvent for low-temperature extraction in subcritical biotechnology. It is also used for hydrocarbon cracking to produce ethylene or steam reforming to produce synthesis gas, as industrial, civil, and internal combustion engine fuel.
Liquid propane flow meter
Propane can be measured with a vortex flowmeter. If it is corrosive, it must be plated with PTFE, which can prevent corrosion.
Vortex shedding flow meter, also called Vortex flow meter. Vortex shedding flow meter is suitable for measuring steam flow rate as well as liquids and gases.
Vortex shedding flow meter, easy installation, low cost, analog and 4-20mA output. Pressure & temperature compensation can improve the sensor for more accurate measurement. Vortex shedding flow meter is suitable for measuring steam and various liquids and gases. When the fluid flows through the assembly line of the vortex flowmeter, a vortex is formed. The frequency of vortex shedding is directly proportional to the fluid velocity.
Vortex shedding flow meter reference price: USD 200-1500/pc.
Propane gas mass flow meter
Thermal Mass Flow Meter can directly measure the mass flow of various gases. Unaffected by changes in viscosity, density, temperature, or pressure.
Thermal Mass Flow Meter is a true mass flow meter. No temperature and pressure compensation is required. Thermal gas mass flow meters are designed based on the principle of thermal diffusion. Including natural gas, coal gas, liquefied gas, flare gas, argon, carbon dioxide and other mixed gas flow measurement.
Natural gas flow meter
Natural gas flow meter is mainly used for inline measurement of natural gas flow. Natural gas flow meter is mainly used for industrial production and trade settlement.
