A Brief Introduction to Clamp-On Flowmeters

    Ultrasonic flowmeters utilize sound waves to calculate fluid flow velocity in a pipe. The frequencies of an ultrasonic wave transmitted into a pipe and its fluid reflections remain the same under no-flow conditions. Thanks to the Doppler effect, the amplitude of the reflected wave differs under flowing conditions. The frequency shift will increase … Continued

Multiple Electrodes Make for Greater Accuracy with the FPI Mag

The drive to provide an optimum level of service plus the scarcity of water has spurred utility managers to concentrate more on obtaining the most accurate and current insights into their distribution systems. A major aspect of this involves flow measurement. Traditional center-line electromagnetic flow meters do not account for variations in velocities across a … Continued

Tackling Low Flow Cutoff

  Steam system operators may find themselves paying a steep price if product passes through a meter but doesn’t get measured. Commonly known as low flow cutoff, these losses typically happen because of a flow meter’s turndown ratio, which determines how wide a flow spectrum is able to be measured. If low flow cutoff is … Continued
