The Best Ways to Calibrate Flow Meters

Flowmeters calculate volume by measuring the rate at which fluid and gases move through them. Accurately measuring these volumes is critical in optimizing the use of energy to pump the water, ensuring that water conservation programs are properly managed, help determine where possible losses are occurring as well as ensuring revenue losses are minimized. Calibration … Continued

McCrometer Electromagnetic Flow Meters

Electromagnetic flow meters (or mag meters) are volumetric flow meters that do not have moving parts that wear, ultimately reducing the need for maintenance and replacements. Accuracy on these flow meters on a wide flow range can be near an average of +/- 0.5% or better. They include an obstruction-free design, eliminating flow impediment, and … Continued

The Top 3 Residential Flow Meters and Accessories

Monitoring water flow and water usage is essential for all buildings and facilities to track their consumption for conservation and budgeting purposes. Many places have local, state, and area restrictions and regulations about water consumption. Monitoring water flow with water meters can help verify the accuracy of consumption, identify leaks, conserve water, and help make … Continued

How to Know if a Flow Meter Reading is Accurate

Flow meter measurement is of the utmost importance when determining accuracy. Typically, accuracy is measured as a percentage of full scale or percentage of reading/percentage of rate. Understanding how these two methods operate will allow you insight into how water meters operate and will enable you to determine their accuracy.   The percentage of full-scale … Continued

Why Flow Measurement is Important for Smart Water Meters

There has been an exponential rise in demand for flowmeters in recent years, including for use in smart water systems in both domestic and commercial use. Water consumption is on the rise worldwide, which means both flow meters and collection system meters will be on the rise to meet the high demand. Smart meters are crucial in managing the … Continued
