Flow Sensors

Variable head flow meters The pressure drop in a flowing fluid can be created by installing an obstacle in the flow path. Flowmeters in this class detect a pressure difference across a flow element specially designed to create that pressure difference. The most common flow element is the orifice plate, Read more…
