A flow meter (or flow sensor) is an instrument used to measure linear, nonlinear,
mass or volumetric flow rate of a liquid or a gas.
When choosing flow meters,
one should consider such intangible factors as familiarity of plant personnel,
their experience with calibration and maintenance, spare parts availability,
and mean time between failure history, etc., at the particular plant site.
It is also recommended that the cost of the installation be computed,
only after taking these steps
The different sensors include dial, in-line, ultrasonic, orifice plate,
totalizing meters, variable area, venturi, or with switch output.
The different designs of the flow meters have a variety of applications.
What is a Flow Meter and how does it work?
Flow Metering Principals
- Differential Pressure Flowmeters
- Velocity Flowmeters
- Positive Displacement Flowmeters
- Mass Flowmeters
- For Open Channel Flowmeters – weirs, flumes, submerged orifices, current meters, acoustic flow meters and more
For different working principle, We offer different types of flow meters, like:
Differential Pressure Flow Meters
The Sonic Nozzle – Critical (Choked) Flow Nozzle
Ultrasonic Doppler Flowmeter
Positive Displacement Flowmeter
Variable Area Flowmeter or Rotameter
Vortex Flow Meter
How to choose your flowmeters?
Important factors when selecting flow metering devices are
- legal constraints
- flow rate range
- head loss
- operating requirements
These factors are more or less related to each other. Example – the cost of flow meters increases with accuracy and lifetime quality.
