Flow Monitor Technologies

Flow Meter Use by Industry/Technology

The original flow meter technologies were Variable area, turbine, positive displacement and differential pressure. The newer technologies are less mechanical and more electronic but all flow meter technologies have improved greatly with the addition of electronic enhancements including protocols that enable digital control. These flow meters work in conjunction with other control elements, notably valves, to handle flow in manufacturing.

This is the description for the Technology category. This may or may not get used. I'm not sure. We shall see. As of right now I'm trying to put some length of content into here and I didn't feel like going to get lorum ipsum text. So, yeah. Hopefully this works.


Aside from the different types of flow meters, there are different general use categories.


There are around $7 Billion worth of flow meters sold per year in the world.  The relative volume used as a percentage of dollar amounts are shown below.
