Some of the industries to which they are most important include: oil and gas, automotive, and aerospace. Read More…

Hydraulic Flow Meters Hydraulic flow meters measure the flow rate or volume of liquid inside a hydraulic system. Their general applications are testing, troubleshooting and maintaining hydraulic systems. Using hydraulic flow meters, operators of hydraulic systems can measure how efficiently and effectively their systems are running and properly address any problems into which they run.

Among the most common types of hydraulic flow meters are turbine flow meters, gear meters, variable orifice flow meters and positive displacement flow meters. Each brings something different to the table.

Regardless, to help them decide on a hydraulic flow meter type and any and all custom designs, manufacturers will consider a number of application specifications. These include: system purpose, fluid properties, whether or not the system will always measure the same type of fluid, minimum and maximum flow, system cleanliness, system and fluid temperatures, required flow measurement accuracy and budget. Examples of fluid properties include: corrosiveness, lubricity and viscosity. These properties are important because it helps manufacturers determine what flow meter materials will or will not be compatible with the fluid to flow through them.

Hydraulic flow meters present their users with a wide range of advantages. First, hydraulic flow meters are an essential instrument if you wish for your hydraulic system to run not only efficiently, but safely. They make sure that you can catch any malfunctions before they become a larger problem. In addition, flow meters are easy to use. With few or no moving parts, on the off chance that they break, they are also easy to fix. These low-maintenance flow meters are a great investment.
