What is mechanical oil flow meter?
Mechanical oil flow meter refers to a flowmeter that can detect the volume flow of oil inline. Most importantly, this type of flowmeter is a mechanical measurement. It is common to use an oval gear flowmeter to measure the flow rate of diesel oil, or other relatively viscous oils.

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.
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.

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.

Frequently asked questions
mechanical flow meter for diesel
There are three types of flowmeters commonly used to measure diesel.
- The first is the oval gear flowmeter, which is also commonly used with an accuracy of 0.5.
- The second is the liquid turbine flowmeter, the accuracy can be 0.5, flange or threaded connection
- The third type is float type, installed vertically or horizontally, with an accuracy of 1.5.

mechanical water flow meter
Mechanical water flow meters refer to a type of flow meter suitable for clean water processes or applications. The working principle of a mechanical water flow meter is to measure the speed of water flowing through a pipe. This causes the piston or turbine to rotate. The volume flow of water is proportional to the rotation speed of the blades. Compared with electronic water flow meters, mechanical water flow meters may become clogged when the water is dirty or contains large particles. When the water flow is low, the mechanical water meter does not work well.
