As technology advances and new industries are developed, the need for precise and exact measurements increases. Liquid flow meters are one such innovative tool created to meet this need. Continuous development of these instruments has served the advancement of many different industries and an ever-increasing range of applications.
True to its name, liquid flow meters measure liquid or gas flow through a pipe and its rate of change. Different types exist with varying construction to serve a wide range of purposes; however, each are built to the best possible fluid temperature, etc of a liquid and the area of application.
Advantages through wide-range applications
Today, liquid flow meters have cemented themselves as essential instruments utilized in many different industries.
Some of these industries include :
- Fuel and oil
- Paints, grease and coating
- Food and beverages
- Differential pressure flow meters:
- Suitable for gas and steam measurement
- Low pressure drops for nozzles
- Withstands extreme pressures and temperatures
- Ability to change range
Electromagnetic Flow Meters:
Foremost advantage is fixed parts
Withstands changes in density, viscosity, temperature, and electrical
Not affected by contamination of liquid
Easy to maintain with a low maintenance cost
Capable of operating in both directions
