Flow meter the National Science and Technology Nomenclature Committee defines it as: the instrument that indicates the measured flow and / or the total amount of fluid in the selected time interval. In simple terms, it is an instrument used to measure fluid flow in a pipe or open channel.
Flowmeter is divided into differential pressure flowmeter, rotor flowmeter, vortex flowmeter, turbine flowmeter, electromagnetic flowmeter, ultrasonic flowmeter. Classification by media: liquid flow meter and gas flow meter.
At the industrial site, instruments that measure fluid flow are collectively referred to as flow meters or flow meters. Is one of the most important instruments in industrial measurement. With the development of industry, the accuracy and scope of flow measurement requirements are getting higher and higher, in order to adapt to a variety of purposes, various types of flowmeter have come out, widely used in oil and gas, petrochemical, water treatment, food and beverage, Pharmaceutical, energy, metallurgy, pulp and paper and building materials industries.
