Finding the correct flow meter

Flow Selection Guide

Numerous principles of operation and design variations together with the consideration of installation parameters, location and the economies of operation can make it a daunting task when choosing the right flow meter for a particular application. If you don’t know the difference between vortex flow, Magflow or mass flow technologies then you’re probably not going to make the right choice when it comes...
