3 Ways Flow Meter Calibration and Accuracy Impacts Your Bottom Line

flow meter calibrationAccuracy is important in any application that utilizes flow meter technology. But in some industries it is absolutely critical that your flow meter accuracy is just that, accurate. In applications where products are sold or purchased on the basis of a meter reading, it is highly important to make sure you know exactly how much liquid is flowing to protect your bottom line. Here are a few ways improper flow meter calibration can cost you money.

  1. Let’s say you are measuring something expensive, like oil. If you are not using a properly calibrated flow meter you may be giving away that expensive product!
  2. Another instance where flow meter accuracy is important is when you are adding a fluid into something else. This must be done with the most precise and perfectly accurate tools as mixing incorrectly can be extremely dangerous; especially in industries like chemicals or pharmaceuticals.
  3. Believe it or not, even billing and ordering is affected by your flow meter accuracy. If you are off on your measurements you may be giving away/bringing in more/less liquid than you realize which will have an impact on your supply/demand. Additionally how will you know if you are properly charging customers if you are not confident in your measurements?

For those reasons (and many more) timely calibration is necessary for flow meter accuracy. But what does ‘timely’ mean?  That depends greatly on your application, conditions, or mandates from governing bodies. Flow meters that are used frequently and/or in harsh environments will require calibration more frequently than those which are used less often in less abrasive environments.
