The market for custody transfer of natural gas has become one of the fastest-growing niches in the flowmeter industry.
Differential pressure (DP) flow meters consist of two elements: a DP flow transmitter and a primary element.
The magnetic flow meter market is one of the largest among flow meters, namely because of the large installed base of magmeters worldwide.
Positive displacement (PD) flow meters are the workhorses of today’s flow meter world. They perform important flow measurements that many people take for granted.
Ultrasonic meters have a distinct advantage when compared to other new-technology meters.
Like the Coriolis flow meter, thermal flow meters measure mass flow, but their method is different. Instead of using fluid momentum, thermal meters use the thermal or heat conducting properties of fluids.
While traditional single-variable vortex meters measure volumetric flow, newer multivariable meters include pressure and/or temperature sensors to measure mass flow.
The history of using turbine meters to measure gas flow dates back to 1953.
