Inline flow meters, also known as flow sensors or flowmeters, are devices used to measure and monitor the rate at which a fluid (such as liquid or gas) flows through a pipe or conduit. These meters are typically installed directly in the flow path and provide real-time data on flow rate, volume, and other relevant parameters. They are perfect for applications where flow disruption is simply not an option.
Our ultrasonic flow meters can be used for clean and dirty water applications. A typical application for an Ultrasonic Flow Meter is measuring flow of liquid in full pipes, also measurement of liquids such as water, wastewater, acids and solvents, chemicals and hydrocarbons and oils, also to monitor and control heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems.
They offer numerous advantages, including process optimisation, leakage detection, compatibility with various fluids, integration with control systems, and diagnostic capabilities.

Inline Water Meters
Inline water meters are devices used to measure the volume of water flowing through a pipe or water supply line. They are typically installed directly in the water line and provide accurate readings of water consumption. These meters are commonly found in residential, commercial, and industrial settings where it is important to monitor water usage for billing, conservation, or process control purposes.
Benefits of Inline Flow Meters
Inline flow meters provide several advantages, including high accuracy, minimal flow restriction, and the capability to handle a wide range of flow rates and liquid types. They are ideal for applications requiring precise flow measurement and control, offering reliable data for process optimisation and resource management.
Types of Inline Meters
Inline flow meters are designed to be installed within the pipeline to measure the flow of liquid directly. These meters come in various types, including turbine, electromagnetic, ultrasonic, and vortex flow meters. Each type has its unique method of measuring flow, offering solutions for different applications and fluid types.
How to Select the Right Inline Flow Meter
Selecting the right inline flow meter involves considering several factors:
Fluid Characteristics: The type of liquid (water, chemicals, etc.) and its conductivity, viscosity, and temperature range.
Flow Range: The minimum and maximum flow rates the meter must accurately measure.
Application Requirements: Pressure, temperature conditions, and the level of accuracy needed.
Installation Environment: Space constraints, accessibility for maintenance, and the presence of hazardous areas.
Budget: Initial purchase cost versus long-term benefits and maintenance expenses.
When selecting an inline flow meter, it's crucial to balance these factors to find a model that meets the specific needs of your application while ensuring reliability and accuracy.
What are the advantages of inline water meters?
Accurate measurement: Offering precise measurement of water flow rates, designed to provide accurate readings, allowing for precise tracking of water consumption and enabling effective water management.
Billing accuracy: These meters play a crucial role in billing systems, especially in situations where water usage needs to be accurately calculated for commercial or multi-unit residential properties.
Leak detection: Inline water meters can help identify leaks in the water supply system by monitoring water flow patterns, any abnormal or continuous flow even when fixtures are not in use can indicate a leak.
Conservation: Identify opportunities to reduce water consumption, implement water-saving practices, and make informed decisions regarding water usage.
