Flowmeter Selection

This Flowmeter Selection guide contains a comprehensive set of criteria to help you select the best Flowmeter solution available in the market.


The complex nature of process operations coupled with the large investments in assets by operating companies in the process industries make the need for automated process control greater than ever.  A key requirement for process control is the accurate and reliable measurement of gas and liquid flow.  Not all flow meter technology is suitable for all types of processes.  Different meters are required depending on such factors as pressure and temperature, as well as the material that is flowing.  For example, certain meters are better suited for hydrocarbon gases while others are designed to handle steam.  Also, considerations must be made as to the conditions of the flowing material to be measured.  Crude oil is typically very viscous and may contain entrained gases, or solid mater.

Selecting the correct flowmeters can be crucial to the operation of your plant.  Failure to measure flows correctly can influence product quality, plant efficiencies, and safe operation.
