Turbine flow meter is a device used to measure the flow rate of fluids by using a turbine to detect changes in flow velocity. Well, in pharmaceutical manufacturing, precise flow measurements are crucial for ensuring product quality, consistency, and safety. That’s where turbine flow meters come in.
In this blog post, we’ll be taking a closer look at how turbine flow meters are used to measure demineralized water flow in the pharmaceutical industry. And the benefits they provide. So, let’s dive in and explore this exciting application case together!
Demineralized Water Flow Measurement Case Study
Challenges in measuring demineralized water flow
Demineralized water: water that has been softened. That is to say, the water with part or all of the calcium and magnesium ions removed is the water that does not form scale after boiling. Boilers must use this water.
Demineralized water is super important in making medicine because it needs to be pure and clean. But measuring how much of this water is flowing can be tricky for a few reasons.
- The water doesn’t conduct electricity very well, which makes it hard to measure with regular equipment that relies on conductivity.
- It needs to be measured with really good equipment that won’t make it dirty.
- Air bubbles can form in the water, which messes up the measurements and might even break the equipment.
- Temperature changes can also mess up the measurements because the water gets thicker or thinner depending on how hot or cold it is.
- The equipment that measures the water flow needs to be taken care of and maintained regularly, which can be a big job, especially in large factories.
So, even though measuring the flow of demineralized water is important, it can be a challenge because of these issues.

Not long ago, we received an inquiry from a customer about a flow meter for measuring softened water.
After communication, I learned that this is a large local pharmaceutical factory. Therefore, after detailed communication, we learned that the customer needs to install a flow meter for measuring the flow of purified water on the equipment in the newly added pharmaceutical workshop. It is convenient for online real-time monitoring of softened water flow. Conducive to the management of ingredients, saving labor and time costs.
Considering the relatively low conductivity of demineralized water, it is not suitable to use electromagnetic flowmeters. We recommended liquid turbine flowmeters with sensitive response and high precision to our customer.

What is Flow Meter K-factor? And how to calculate?
So, to sum it up, measuring water flow accurately is really important in the pharmaceutical industry, especially when it comes to demineralized water. But, using turbine flow meters can help us measure the water flow more accurately, even though there are challenges like low conductivity and air bubbles. These meters are also easy to maintain and won’t make the water dirty.
In the future, we can expect to see more use of turbine flow meters in the pharmaceutical industry because everyone wants better and more consistent products. With advances in technology and better understanding of the importance of accurate flow measurement, these meters will probably become even more popular.
