Stainless steel flow meters are made of stainless steel for the flow sensor. When the flowmeter needs to be measured in a clean environment, a stainless steel flowmeter will be selected. Or, when the measuring environment or measuring medium is corrosive, stainless steel flowmeters will also be selected. Stainless Steel Meters with NPT, Tri-clamp, or Flanged Connections can resist magnetization, corrosion, and stability.

The corrosion resistance of stainless steel flow meters
Stainless steel flow meters are generally used in corrosive environments. According to different measuring environments and measuring mediums, stainless steel such as 304/316/316L can be used.
304 stainless steel
As a widely used steel, 18Cr-8Ni has good corrosion resistance, heat resistance, low-temperature strength and mechanical properties. It has good hot workability such as stamping and bending, and no heat treatment hardening phenomenon (non-magnetic, temperature -196℃ ~800℃).
316 stainless steel
18Cr-12Ni-2.5Mo is added with Mo, so its corrosion resistance, atmospheric corrosion resistance, and high-temperature strength are particularly good, can be used under harsh conditions; excellent work hardening (non-magnetic). Equipment used in seawater, chemical, dye, paper, oxalic acid, fertilizer, and other production equipment; photography, food industry, coastal area facilities, ropes, CD rods, bolts, nuts
316L stainless steel
18Cr-12Ni-2.5Mo low carbon as the low C series of 316 steel, in addition to the same characteristics as 316 steel, it has excellent resistance to grain boundary corrosion. Among the uses of 316 steel, products with special requirements for resistance to grain boundary corrosion.
316L stainless steel is not resistant to hydrochloric acid, because the chloride ion in hydrochloric acid will chemically react with the town in 316, and the reaction changes slowly, but there is still a problem after a long time. If it is convenient to use in the chemical industry, it is not necessary to consider materials such as lining plastic.

Parts of Flow Meter
A flow meter is an instrument used to measure the volume or mass of gas, steam, or liquid. Based on a specific industry, there are many different names for flow meters. Such as flow meters, flow indicators, liquid flow meters, flow sensors, etc.
Most flow meters consist of three parts: primary device, sensor, and transmitter. The job of the sensor is to sense the fluid passing through the main device. The raw signal from the sensor is then converted into usable data by the transmitter. The flow meter may consist of one or more physical devices because these components are combined most of the time.
