With all of the flow meter technology available on the market today, selecting a flow meter can be a confusing process and selecting the wrong one can result in some serious problems (studies have claimed that 90% of flow meter measurement problems are due to incorrect meter selection). When you consider all of the various catagories and subcategories of flow meters on today’s market and then consider the pros and cons of each solution, the task of choosing the right meter is daunting to say the least. With all of the options available, how do you decide which flow meter will be best suited for your application?
There are a number of things to consider as you evaluate your options including:
Size and measuring range
Processes and accuracy requirements
Acceptable pressure drop
Desired measurement units (velocity, mass, volume, etc)
Uni-direction vs. bi-directional measurement
Fluid viscosity limitations
Necessary approvals for applications such as sanitary or hazardous areas.
Data output requirements (relay, digital, simple, etc.)
