Over the past month, we’ve added some new and compelling video content to the FlowTube video service on FlowControlNetwork.com. FlowTube is a running archive of videos that focuses on technologies and solutions for fluid movement, measurement and containment. Here are brief summaries of the video content we added to FlowTube in April, with direct links to the video player page so you can watch what you want. If you have videos (or suggestions) for our FlowTube video service, email us at FlowControl@GrandViewMedia.com.

Cryogenic ValvesHow Vortex Flowmeters Work

In 16th century Italy, Leonardo da Vinci observed how vortices form in flowing water. Some 400 years later, Hungarian physicist Theodore von Karmen described the physical laws for how these vortices take shape. Today, vortex flowmeters based on the "Vortex Principle" are used to measure liquids flowing through piping systems. This video explains how vortex flowmeters work.
