Industrial Oil Flow Meters

The oil Flow Meter is very important for industrial production and trade settlement. This article mainly wants to help users find the suitable industrial Oil Flow Meter effectively.

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 digital refers to an oil flow meter with a local digital display function. The flowmeter can be configured with local digital display, pointer display, and without local digital display. Therefore, it is determined whether the digital display function is needed according to the needs of users.

Explore Oil and Gas Flow Meters

The signal output by the flowmeter is generally a pulse signal or a 4-20mA current signal, both of which output instantaneous flow.

The flowmeter voltage signal is unstable. It is simply disturbed during long-distance transmission. The current signal is relatively stable.

The current signal is used in the transmission process, and the voltage signal (the range of voltage value) is used for detailed control in the control instrument (integrator) and DCS system.

The mechanical oil flow meter is a type of flow meter. The mechanical flowmeter is a purely mechanical measuring component. Such as turbine flowmeter, rotameter, etc. Relatively speaking, for example, ultrasonic flowmeters use ultrasonic principles instead of mechanical principles. So the ultrasonic flowmeter is not a mechanical flowmeter.

Oil is generally transported through pipelines. There are many ways to measure oil flow. For example, use the oil tank level difference to calculate the oil flow. Of course, the simplest and most effective way is to use a flow meter.

Although the types of oil flow meters are different, their working principles are different. However, they can all help us achieve a goal. That is to measure and monitor the flow of oil. Instantaneous flow, cumulative flow, etc.

So that we can better control production and trade.

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

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 Meters

Vortex flow meter, also called Vortex shedding flow meter. Vortex Flow Meter is suitable for flow measurement of steam and various liquids and gases.

Ultrasonic Flow Meters

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 Meters

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 Meters

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 Meters

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.

Industrial Fuel Flow Meters

The fuel flow meter is an instrument that can monitor fuel flow. Industrial Fuel is an important energy source. For example, diesel, marine fuel, gasoline, etc.

Industrial Fuel is an important energy source for production and manufacturing. For example, diesel, marine fuel, gasoline, etc. It is very necessary to accurately measure industrial fuel. Commonly used industrial fuel flow meters, such as turbine flow meters, gear flow meters, mass flow meters, ultrasonic flow meters, etc.

If your fuel has low viscosity and good flow rate. You can first refer to the turbine flowmeter. As long as the pressure and flow range are satisfied, you can find a suitable flow meter and use the best price.

If you need to measure the flow of cooking oil. Such as sunflower oil. Then, the sanitary flowmeter is the first choice.

Sanitary turbine flow meters have stainless steel bodies and come standard with Tri-Clover fittings. A Sanitary flow meter is suitable for measuring liquid without impurities. It can output a pulse frequency signal. It is used to detect instantaneous flow and total integrated flow. A Sanitary flow meters can be used in food, sports drink, liquor, and other beverage industries, in preprocess applications.

Vortex Shedding Flow Meter

The heat transfer oil uses a high-temperature vortex flowmeter to measure the flow rate. Can meet the measurement of high temperature. the best price.

For measuring lubricating oil, the mechanical oval gear flowmeter is the first choice. Because of measuring temperature, high viscosity measurement can be met. Oil with low viscosity can be measured with a turbine flowmeter.

To measure crude oil, you can also consider the oval gear flowmeter first. If the precision is extremely high. Then you can use a mass flow meter.

There is no hydraulic oil flow meter in the strict sense. It is not accurate to say which flowmeter is a hydraulic flow meter. Which one to use depends on the specific flow measurement conditions.

For example, the hydraulic oil is also labeled, 40 #, 46 #, or other viscosity properties. Then choose a suitable flow meter according to the relevant information such as flow, pressure, viscosity, and so on.

Of course, turbine flowmeters can be considered first.

The heating oil flow meter is also called a heating oil flow gauge. It is a high-temperature mechanical fuel meter. A high-temperature type oval gear flow meter can be used as a heating oil flow meter. Can reach 60℃~200℃.
