Water Flow Meters

Water flow meterWhat are Water Flow Meters?

A water flow meter is a device able to measure the amount of water that is flowing through a pipe. Water flow meters are used in both commercial and residential buildings and locations. Different pieces of equipment require different flow rates, which is why it’s important to use a water flowmeter to determine the water meter flow rate.

Water flow meters can measure hot water, cold water, clean water, dirty water, and slurries. Depending on the type of meter you chose, water flow meter applications can vary.

While some meters are designed to measure the flow of oils and lubrications, others are designed to work in pharmaceuticals and wastewater treatment facilities.

Advantage of Ultrasonic Water Meters

Ultrasonic water flow-meters are only measuring water, so air in the pipelines does not get measured. Therefore removing any error or possible manipulation of meter readings.

With no moving parts an ultrasonic meter has no mechanical wear and tear and so will require less maintenance.

Water Meters and Flow Meters:

Though these terms are often quite interchangeable, whilst all water meters are flow meters, not all flow meters are water meters.

The main difference being that a water meter measures the volume of water that passes through the meter. A flow meter will measure the speed (flow rate) at which liquid passes through the meter.

Water Flow Meter FAQS:

The main five classifications of flow meters, include Velocity Flow Meters, Differential Pressure Flow Meters, Positive Displacement Flow Meters,Mass Flow Meters, and Open Channel Flow Meters .

Flow meters are devices used to measure the flow rate or quantity of a gas or liquid moving through a pipe. The two main types of flow meters  we offer are:

  1. Clamp-On Ultrasonic Flow Meters: These devices attach to the outside of pipes and use ultrasonic waves to measure the flow rate of liquid inside the pipe. They are ideal for applications where minimal disruption to the flow and non-intrusive measurements are required.
  2. Fixed Ultrasonic Flow Meters: These are permanently installed systems that also use ultrasonic technology to monitor flow rates continuously. They are suitable for long-term monitoring in industrial and environmental applications.
