LPG flow meter is used for flow measurement of liquefied petroleum gas. The flow measurement of LPG is very important in industrial production, transportation and trade settlement.

LPG flow meters

LPG gas (Liquefied petroleum gas) is a kind of hydrocarbon with propane and butane as its main components. LPG is used for heating, motor fuel, industrial applications and in agriculture. LPG can be in a gas or liquefied state. Different type industrial LPG flow meters with accurate and reliable performance. Such as thermal dispersion flow meter, Coriolis flow meter, gas turbine flow meter, vortex flow meters.

Sino-Inst offers LPG/propane gas flow meter at competitive low price from China gas flow meter manufactures. If you have any questions, please contact our sales engineers.

Features of LPG

LPG refers to petroleum gas liquefied at high pressure or low temperature, referred to as “liquefied petroleum gas” or “liquefied petroleum gas”. Its composition is propane, n-butane, isobutane and a small amount of ethane, organic compounds greater than carbon 5, unsaturated hydrocarbons and so on.

LPG has the characteristics of flammability, explosiveness, vaporization, thermal expansion, retention, electrification, corrosiveness and suffocation.

PG is mainly composed of propane (C3H8) and butane (C4H10). Some LPG also contains propylene (C3H6) and butene (C4H8).

LPG is generally obtained from petroleum gas in oil and gas fields, refineries or ethylene plants. Compared with other fuels, LPG has the following unique advantages.

  • Less pollution
  • High heat
  • Easy to transport
  • Stable pressure
  • Simple storage and flexible supply

Because of the above-mentioned advantages of LPG, it is widely used as industrial, commercial and domestic fuel.

At the same time, its chemical composition determines that LPG is also a very useful chemical raw material, so it is also widely used in the production of various chemical products.

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.

Volumetric Flow Meter is a mechanical instrument used to measure the volume flow of fluids. A volumetric flow meter is an instrument which can measure either directly or indirectly the volume of a substance which is passing through a specific location in a set period of time. The main advantage of these types of flow meters is that they can handle high viscosity and corrosiveness fluid.
