An Introduction to Tools for a Propane Transfer

Propane Transfer | Flowmetrics

Propane is a commonly used fuel that is vital to many operations and industries. Typically, propane is stored in tanks designed specifically for the purpose of holding the fuel in its liquid state. Whenever a particular tank is low, you are often left with two choices: you can purchase a new, full tank or have an existing tank refilled. If you choose the former, all you need to do is make the purchase. If you decide on the latter course, then various propane transfer tools are required.

The Critical Role of Flowmeters in the Aviation Industry

Aviation Industry | Flowmetrics

In 2016, over 700 million passengers took to the skies in the United States alone, based on the number of times someone boarded a plane for a one-way trip. And, even with that number of travelers, flying remains one of the safer forms of transportation statistically. Part of what makes flying comparatively safe is the strict guidelines involved in the proper operation and maintenance of passenger aircraft. Meeting these standards is no easy feat and, in fact, requires numerous precision instruments, including flowmeters.

Nitrogen Gas: A Critical Material Flowing through Our Daily Lives

Nitrogen Gas | Flowmetrics

Nitrogen gas is a widely used material involved in operations across an array of industries within the United States and beyond. Often, its use in industry requires a level of precision, requiring that the associated input or output of gas be measured accurately to meet the operational need. One of the easiest methods for measuring the flow of nitrogen gas accurately is with an RF pickup. To help you understand how nitrogen gas is used on a daily basis and why an RF pickup is the best choice for these operations, here is an overview of the element’s properties, uses in industry, and unique measurement requirements.

Understanding Flowmeters in the Pharmaceutical Industry

Pharmaceutical Industry | Flowmetrics

A flowmeter is a manufactured device that measures (in volumetric or mass flow rates) the rate at which a liquid or gas moves through a pipe. There are different reasons why you’d want to be able to measure this, such as fine-tuning costs, emissions, and quality to name a few. Some liquids and gasses can be volatile or corrosive while others can be extremely expensive. Oil and gas are great examples of this. In cases of medicine and pharmaceuticals, all of the above apply, and more. For a direct example, flowmeters measure the amount of paint applied to a pill.  A central air system provides airflow to coaters. This measurement is strictly regulated to affect dyeing rate and thickness in coating. This should give you an idea of how commonly used flow meters are. This article will take a look at the two most commonly used flowmeters in the pharmaceutical industry, as well as what the future of flowmeters has in store.
