Venturi flowmeter

21 September, 2009 by

Dwyer Instruments has released a Venturi flowmeter with a Magnehelic gauge that is designed to measure the flow of compatible gases while keeping the pressure drop through the meter at a minimum.

Flare gas flowmeter

25 June, 2009 by

The GF90 flare gas flowmeter from Fluid Components International is designed to solve the problem of measuring dangerous, explosive and toxic gases that often flow at extremely varying or low levels. It can measure waste gases of varying hydrocarbon composition down to a low 0.25 sfps for flare system disposal.


17 June, 2009

GF Piping Systems has added the Signet 4150 turbidimeter to its line of analytical instrumentation. The instrument provides reliable water readings, making it suitable for both municipal and industrial applications.

Thermal dispersion flow switches

09 June, 2009 by

The Kayden line of products is based on the thermal dispersion principle of operation. The Classic 800 was conceived to meet the extreme demands of the oil and gas industries, and there are no moving parts to fail, no mechanical trim pots to adjust.

Magnetic flowmeters

09 June, 2009 by

Endress+Hauser has developed a range of compact, wafer-style magnetic flowmeters that are lightweight and cost effective. Known as the Promag 10/50D, the range has been specifically designed to reliably record water flow in pipelines where flowmeter weight and size are important design considerations.

Transducer non-invasively measures flow rates in pipes

20 May, 2009

The PT878 and the OKS transducers combined allows the user to non-invasively measure flow rates in pipes within the temperature range of -200°C to 350°C.

An irrefutable measurement solution for bunker fuel oil

19 May, 2009

The metering of bunker fuel oil represents a series of difficult technical challenges, but BP Marine Fuels believed that by employing advanced technology, the arcane practice of manually measuring or ‘dipping’ the amount of bunker fuel oil on a fuel barge will be consigned to the past. Shipowners can now reconcile the volume of bunker fuel oil delivered without the requirement for inspection.

Compact orifice DP flowmeters

01 April, 2009 by

The OriMaster compact orifice DP flowmeter is a one-piece flowmeter that comes fully factory configured and pressure tested, solving many of the problems associated with sizing, selection, installation and operation of conventional orifice plate installations.

Burkert Fluid Control Systems sanitary mag flowmeter

01 April, 2009

Dedicated to process applications that do not require local push-button programming or display, the blind Type 8056 sanitary mag flowmeter delivers high accuracy over a wide flow velocity range. The Type 8056 is engineered for fast filling applications with short reaction time, high-speed sampling (short sampling/measurement time) and high-speed frequency output, making it suitable for filling systems.

Thermal dispersion gas flowmeter

01 April, 2009 by

The Proline t-mass 65 thermal dispersion flowmeter provides a direct measurement of gas mass flow and temperature.

Mimicking nature for better flow sensors

30 March, 2009

Researchers are using the motion-sensing hairs on a blind cavefish as a blueprint for advanced flow sensors.

Passive sonar flowmeter technology — operating principles

18 March, 2009

Flow measurements in the mineral processing and mining industry suffer from the limitations placed by previously available flowmeters including the commonly used instruments such as ultrasonic meters, magmeters, turbine meters, orifice plate meters, vortex meters, Coriolis meters and Venturi meters. The desire or requirement to make a non-contact measurement that is accurate and robust, and can be performed on practically any type of fluid within practically any type of pipe, has driven the creation of a new class of flowmeters.

Thermal mass flowmeter

12 March, 2009 by

The ST75 flowmeter from Fluid Components International is now available in a remote mountable configuration for applications in hazardous areas or hard-to-reach locations. The ST75’s remote mount transmitter, which includes a full digital display, can be mounted up to 15 m away from its thermal mass flow sensor in the process piping and connected via two 0.50" FNPT cables.

Swagelok flowmeters

12 March, 2009

Swagelok variable area flowmeters (VAFs) are used to measure liquid and gas flow rates by means of a tapered tube and float, and provide highly accurate measurement with individually calibrated scales and a 10:1 turndown ratio. All Swagelok VAFs are factory calibrated and marked to indicate the specific media, flow range, and accuracy class. In addition, the product can be calibrated and marked to customer-specific applications.

Ultrasonic flow transmitter

12 March, 2009 by

The UTX878 flow ultrasonic transmitter combines the simplicity of a loop-powered meter installation with advanced clamp-on ultrasonic flow transmitter technology.
