How to Specify the Best Flowmeter for your Application

Dec 20 2016 Comments 0

Titan Enterprises reports on a white paper written to assist design engineers looking to specify the best liquid flowmeter for their application.

Choosing the best flowmeter for your application can be a daunting task as the optimal specification can vary considerably according to a wide range of operational parameters including pipe bore, flow path, liquid viscosity, particulate levels, measurement accuracy, measurement dynamic range, maintenance required and target purchase price.

Drawing upon over 40 years of designing and supplying liquid flowmeters to meet stringent specifications – the engineering team at Titan Enterprises produced an informative and unbiased white paper that discusses the benefits, limitations and ease of applying different flowmeter technologies (differential pressure, turbine, propeller, positive displacement, vortex, ultrasonic, electromagnetic and mass flow measurement) to metering liquid flows. In addition the paper discusses the many elements that make up cost of ownership over and above the flowmeter purchase price that a design engineer should consider when specifying the best system for their application.

To assist the specification process the paper includes an easy-to-use selection guide that takes 13 different application examples and charts them against 14 different types of flowmeter, highlighting the good, the bad, and the questionable techniques for each application.
