Factors That Affect Life Expectancy & Calibration of Turbine Flowmeters

Calibration of Turbine FlowmetersIn the most basic terms, a turbine flowmter is a gas/liquid measuring device which contains a free-spinning turbine, hence the name. The turbine within the meter turns at a speed proportional to the flow of the material running through it which is how the device measures the flow rate of the material.  While these are commonly used and highly accurate meters, there are a few factors that can impact the life expectancy and accuracy of the meter such as operating above or below the range of the meter, calibration of turbine flowmeters, and more.
