Part I: Flow Trend Watch

This is the first of a two-part series on broad-based trends in flowmeter technology and applications based on results of Flow Research’s new Volume X: The World Market for Flowmeters, 4th Edition. Part I focuses on new-technology flowmeters. Part II will focus on trends in traditional-technology flowmeters.

Vortex Flowmeter Snapshot

The past five years have seen major product enhancements to vortex flowmeters. One perennial problem with vortex flowmeters has been susceptibility to vibration error.  Vibrations in the line can cause a vortex flowmeter to falsely generate a vortex signal, or to incorrectly read an existing vortex. Suppliers have responded by implementing software and electronics, including digital signal processing, that have reduced the susceptibility of vortex meters to interference from vibration.
