What is a mechanical flow meter?
Mechanical flow meters are a type of flow meters that use arrangement moving parts to measure flow. The fluid passes through a series of gears or chambers (positive displacement or PD) or through a rotating turbine or rotor. Mechanical flowmeter is different from electromagnetic and ultrasonic in principle. Mechanical flow meters easily monitor liquid flow rates for water, fuels, viscous fluids and more.
Mechanical flow meter types
There are many types of flow meters.
The electromagnetic flowmeter is based on the electromagnetic principle. When a conductive fluid flows through an electromagnetic field, the velocity of the fluid can be obtained by measuring the voltage.
Ultrasonic flow meters use the principle of ultrasonic acoustics to measure flow velocity. The mechanical flow meter is a relative concept.
Compared with other flow meters, the mechanical flowmeter relies on the rotation and displacement of mechanical parts to measure the flow rate. Common mechanical flow meters have the following categories.
