Advanced Flow Meters and Latest Launches Introduces New Opportunities
Along with the growing technology and an increase in the emergence of new industries, the requirement of accurate measurement has increased as well. Flow meters are one such advanced tool created to fulfill the requirement. The incessant advancement of these tools has served the development in various industrial sectors.
Flow meters are required to measure the rate of liquid or gas flow, and its variations through a pipe. There is a wide range of meters with varying construction for various purposes. Followed by the best fluid dynamic principles, these meters are structured and used on the basis of viscosity, pressure, and temperature of the liquid and gas.
There is a variety of flow meters. The construction of a flow meter is based on the application, type of fluid, and materials required. The basic classification of flow meters includes differential pressure flow meters, positive displacement flow meters, mass flow meters, open channel flow meters, and velocity flow meters.
Differential pressure flow meters are generally used in industries such as oil & gas, beverage, pharma, mining, and chemical applications. On the other hand, positive displacement flow meters are acknowledged for its precise and accurate reading. These meters are commonly used for transferring oils and fluids such as hydraulic fluids, gasoline, and other water and gas applications for household purposes. Furthermore, velocity meters such as paddlewheel, ultrasonic and sonic flow meters, electromagnetic flow meters, and vortex shedding are used to calculate the volumetric flow rate. A mass flow meter is usually required for chemical processes. Industries including chemical and gas, pharma, power, wastewater, and mining require mass flow meter. Moreover, open channel flow meters are used for free-flowing liquids including rivers, channels and sewers, wastewater systems, and irrigation purposes.
Owing to the advancements, the global industry has witnessed several new launches in recent years. The following are some of the latest launches in the global market.
