Gas Flow meter


Gas flow meter is a kind of gas flow measurement devices that measure the flow of a gas. The gas flow sensors are installed in the pipeline to display and record the amount of gas passing through the pipelines. Gas flow meters can measure gas, air, nitrogen, acetylene, phosgene, hydrogen, natural gas, nitrogen, LPG gas, hydrogen peroxide, flue gas, methane, butane, chlorine, gas, biogas, CO2, O2, compressed air, argon Gas, toluene, benzene, xylene, hydrogen sulfide, sulfur dioxide (SO2), ammonia,propane gas flow meter and so on

Well, if there would be a perfect flowmeter it will require no or little calibration, little maintenance, high turndown, reliable and high accuracy. The little costs and the purchase price will also be inexpensive.

Some suppliers argue that they have the perfect flowmeter but the fact is that chances of having one are minimal. This is because every typical flow meter has its disadvantages and advantages because of the principle of operation and the technology used.

The disadvantages that arise are because of material used in the construction, installation, and application. For instance, gas turbine flow meters would not operate effectively without the moving parts. On the other hand, Coriolis meters lack moving parts but technology requires them to be large which will make it expensive.

Additionally, magnetic flowmeters require conductive fluids when making measurements hence they can’t measure hydrocarbon liquids.

This article is set to explore the advantages and disadvantages of the latest flowmeters used to measure gas flow rate because liquids are easily measured compared to gas.

There are many gas flow meter types,the following are the common gas flow meters that Silver Automation Instruments often recommend to customers
