Industrial oil flow meters measure the volume or mass of oil. Can realize the mutual conversion of volume and mass.
The main industrial oils are hydraulic oil. Gear Oil. Turbine oil. Compressor oil. Refrigeration oil. Transformer oil. Cylinder oil, heat treatment oil, heat transfer oil, etc. Of course, edible oil can also be produced in the industry. In addition, there are greases with lubricating oil as base oil and thickening agent.
Therefore, whether it is a company that uses, trades, or produces oil, it needs to accurately measure the oil flow.
There are many common oil flow meters, such as turbine flow meters, positive displacement flow meters, gear flow meters, mass flow meters, etc.
Then, we need to choose a suitable flow meter that meets the measurement and budget according to different working conditions.
Oil flow meter types
At present, the following types of flow meters can be used to measure oil: Turbine flow meters. Gear flow meter. Vortex flowmeter. Ultrasonic flow meter. Mass flowmeter. Differential pressure flow meters.
Turbine flow meters are velocity flow meters, also called impeller flow meters. Used to measure the instantaneous flow and cumulative flow of liquids and gases.
Vortex flow meter, also called Vortex shedding flow meter. Vortex Flow Meter is suitable for flow measurement of steam and various liquids and gases.
The ultrasonic flow meter measures the liquid flow rate quickly and effectively. There are two types of ultrasonic flowmeter technology: Doppler frequency shift and transit time.
Differential Pressure Flow Meter is also called DP flow meter. Differential pressure flow meters use the principle of differential pressure to measure the flow of liquid, gas and steam.
Volumetric Flow Meter, as a mechanical flow meter, is also called Positive displacement flowmeter. It can measure the volume flow of high viscosity and corrosive fluids.
Mass flow meter directly measures the mass flow of the medium passing through the flow meter. It can also measure the density, temperature and viscosity of the medium
You can find a suitable flow meter in the appropriate type of oil flow meter according to your needs. Of course, maybe, you don’t know what type of flowmeter you should use.
Next, we recommend suitable flow meters for some commonly used oils.
Of course, the above are just our suggestions. If you need to choose the right flow meter. You can contact Sino-Inst sales engineers. We will provide you with the most suitable measurement solution.
