Benefits of Variable Area Flowmeters and How to Choose One

Variable Area Flowmeters | Flowmetrics

If you want to keep tabs on the rate at which your gases or liquids are flowing, consider using variable area flowmeters to do the job effectively. These meters measure flow in a cross-sectional area and makes changes in response to the flow. The variable area variety of meter is simple to operate and is chosen for its efficiency in measuring both liquid and gas applications. Those who need this type of meter will find that these devices are economical and can be installed in just a few steps on the vertical section of the tube. In addition, there are no tubing run requirements for variable area flowmeters. The end caps located on the flowmeters can be removed easily and cleaned as needed. This makes troubleshooting and inspection simpler and can enable you to check the proper functioning of the meter at regular intervals.
