If you’re looking to get accurate readings out of your flow meter, the first place to start is in flow meter maintenance. Your flow meter will only perform as well as you treat it, and inaccurate readings can start when a flow meter isn’t properly taken care of. Between installation, usage and calibration, there are a lot of areas to look after when it comes to proper flow meter maintenance.
With so many different types of meters, picking out the right flow meter can be a bit overwhelming; afterall, your choice of meter can impact important areas of your business such as revenue, workplace safety, customer satisfaction, and more. Depending on your application, your industry, and requirements, there are hundreds or ways to get started, so which path do you choose? The answers to the questions below will help you narrow down the many choices you have at the beginning of your flow meter selection process to get you on your way to choosing the right tool for the job.

Air flow meters serve to measure how much air is flowing through a tube at a given time
however, the meter does not measure volume of the air but the speed of the air as it moves through the device. Over time these meters can wear out or even fail which will significantly decrease the performance of the application in which they are found, often times they are found in engines. The possibility of failure and the inevitable wearing of the meter is why it is important to have regular maintenance such as air flow meter calibration. Continue reading

Turbine flow meter
A turbine flow meter (or axial turbine) measures the mechanical action of the blades in the liquid flow and translates it into a user-readable rate (gpm, lpm, etc.). the blades turn at a rate proportional to the rate of the flow; this is measured by an electrical element which generates a pulse. The number of pulses over a given period of time are then measured and represent the volume of flow.
When it comes to flow meter selection, it is imperative to remember that every liquid of gas will behave differently when flowing through the pipeline due to its level of viscosity (level of resistance of flow) and each application will have different conditions that will effect flow.
Because of this, no single flow meter will suite all jobs and conditions.So, how are you supposed to figure out which flow meter is best for your application?
