Flow Meters in UAE
About Flow Meters
A flow meter is the equipment that is used to measure the flow rate or amount of fluid passing through a pipe. The flow meter typically measures the velocity of the fluid in the container or pipe with respect to the area of the container or pipe and calculates the flow rate. The fluids that are usually measured using flow meters are oil, gas, effluent discharges, and wastewater monitoring.
The flow measurement is required in many variant & diverse situations where different constraints take part in the calculation. These constraints hinder the precision of the calculation. There is no Universal flow meter which suits different fluids and application, One needs to select an appropriate flow meter suitable for the application. The flow rate in a flow meter is measured in terms of LPS (Liters per second), CFS (Cubic feet per second) or GPM (Gallons per minute). There are certain criteria to be kept in mind before choosing the right flow meter for your application, such as the fluid type (gas or liquid), the extreme flow rates, the precision of the equipment, fluid temperature, fluid viscosity, fluid compatibility guide, and maximum pressure allowed at the location.
Fluids flow in many forms and patterns such as linear flow, non-linear flow, mass flow or volumetric flow. The flowmeter can measure all forms and patterns of fluids in the container provided the necessary accessories. Flow meters has many integral parts such as a pick-off sensor, preamplifier, strainer, F-I converters, air eliminator and many other which decide the performance of the flow meter. There are many types of flow meter that are available for various purposes such as turbine flow meter, variable area meter, overall gear meter and helical gear meters.
