Inline water flow meters are instruments that can be installed directly on water flow pipes to display flow. In principle, there are mechanical, ultrasonic, electromagnetic, and so on. Used in residential water pipes or industrial water pipes.

Residential inline water flow meter
The residential inline water flow meter is an essential thing in modern residents’ homes. The residential inline water flow meter is used to measure household water consumption. It is also the basis for the water company’s charges.
Industrial inline water flow meter
Industrial inline water flow meters are more complicated than residential water meters. Because residential water is mainly used to measure tap water. Industrially, it is necessary to measure water, including raw water, wastewater, condensed water, and various aqueous solutions.

Mechanical water flow meter
A mechanical water flow meter relies on the kinetic energy of the water flow to drive the metering mechanism to work. The water flowing through the water pipe impacts the water meter impeller and then drives the gear to rotate, without electricity.
The mechanical water flow meter is currently used less, mainly due to the following reasons:
There are many vulnerable parts, and the existence of the movable part impeller is easy to cause fouling of itself and the measuring cavity. Even blockage, especially when the water quality is poor. Therefore, the reliability and stability of the work are relatively low;
The movable part of the impeller shaft core is easy to wear after a long time or high flow rate operation. Especially when the water quality is corrosive. Therefore, the durability of work is low, and the service life is relatively short;
The presence of the impeller in the measurement chamber will produce a large pressure loss. Reduce the transmission capacity of the heating pipe network. In particular, it brings difficulties to the transformation of the old pipe network;
The accuracy of flow measurement is relatively low. There are also certain requirements for the flow rate of the fluid. Can not effectively measure when the flow rate is low.

Digital flow meter
Compared with a Mechanical inline water flow meter, a Digital flow meter makes it easier for users to obtain flow information.
Digital flow meter generally has a digital display. The traffic can be displayed locally. Including instantaneous flow and cumulative flow. It can even display information such as pressure and temperature.
Digital flow meter generally also supports remote data transmission. Digital flow meter outputs pulse, 4-20mA, and other signals. Support HART, RS485, and other protocols. Even wireless remote transmission.
