The first step in choosing the right Panel Flow Meter

  •  

      A plastic Rotameter (or flow sensor) is an instrument used to measure the linear, non-linear, mass, or volumetric flow rate of liquid or gas. When selecting a flow meter, intangible factors should be considered, such as the familiarity of factory personnel, their experience in calibration and maintenance, the availability of spare parts, and the mean historical interval between failures at a specific factory site. It is also recommended to calculate the installation cost only after performing these steps.

      One of the most common flow measurement errors is the reversal of this sequence: instead of choosing a sensor that will function normally, try to justify the use of the device because it is cheap. Those "cheap" purchases may be the most expensive installations. This page will help you better understand the flowmeter, but if you encounter any special flow measurement challenges, you can also communicate with our application engineers at any time.

      The first step in choosing the right Panel Flow Meter

      The first step in Panel Flow Meter selection is to determine whether the flow information is continuous or total and whether this information needs to be used locally or remotely. If it is remote, should the transmission be analog, digital or shared? And, if shared, what is the (minimum) data update frequency required? Once these questions are answered, the characteristics and flow characteristics of the process fluid and the pipe that will house the flow meter should be evaluated. In order to accomplish this task systematically, a form has been developed that requires the following types of data to be filled in for each application: Download the flow meter evaluation form
