What is a Flowmeter?
A flowmeter is a device that is used when measuring gases and liquids that move through a pipe or line. Flowmeters are used in a variety of industries, including chemical processing, aerospace industries and also in laboratories. Some flowmeters measure the amount of liquid passing through it during a certain time period (i.e. 200 liters per minute) and others measure the total amount transmitted altogether.

Even if you do not live in California, you know that the state has a tendency to have dry spells. This has launched a series of regulations that govern the use of water and efficient application of flow meters. These flowmeters are vital to making sure there is an efficient transfer of water and liquids for residential and industrial uses. If there is a problem with the flow of the material or leak, dangerous gasses could and escape and pollute the area or in the case of water, it could leak and waste valuable resources and money. A flowmeter not only records the speed and pressure of liquid flow but also indicates the presence of leaks. An interruption in the flow can be a sign of a problem that can be fixed quickly if it is located efficiently.
California’s flowmeter regulations for water meters are connected with an overall environmental policy that seeks to conserve resources that are often under threat, such as water. The California Energy Commission directed its focus onto water meters because of the importance they play in measuring flow rates accurately. These rates can arrest water loss and transfer of liquids from one place to another. The water meters are essential in places that are designed for the storage and treatment of water. These flowmeter regulations are also good for business because any money spent on wasted water by a company is often passed on to the customer. The meters also encourage proper repairs which can prevent water waste and make production more effective.
