Flow Measurement

Laminar Flow Meter Working Principle

S Bharadwaj Reddy
A unique form of differential pressure-based flow measurement deserves its own section in this flow measurement chapter, and that is the laminar flowmeter. Laminar flow is a condition of fluid

Why Pressure & Temperature Compensation required for Orifice Flow Meters ?

S Bharadwaj Reddy
When we derived a formula for predicting flow rate from pressure dropped by a  orifice or venturi tube or, we had to make many assumptions, chief among them being a total

Different Flow Elements

S Bharadwaj Reddy
Other pressure-based flow elements exist as alternatives to the orifice plate. The Pitot tube, for example, senses pressure as the fluid stagnates (comes to a complete stop) against the open

Insertion flow meters

S Bharadwaj Reddy
When the pipe carrying process fluid is large in size, it may be impractical or cost-prohibitive to install a full-diameter flowmeter to measure fluid flow rate. A practical alternative for

Standardized Volumetric Flow

S Bharadwaj Reddy
The majority of flowmeter technologies operate on the principle of interpreting fluid flow based on the velocity of the fluid. Magnetic, ultrasonic, turbine, and vortex flowmeters are prime examples, where

Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) Principle

S Bharadwaj Reddy
Particle image velocimetry (PIV) is an optical method of flow visualization used in education and research. It is used to obtain instantaneous velocity measurements and related properties in fluids. The fluid is seeded with tracer particles which, for sufficiently small particles, are assumed

Optical flow meter Principle

S Bharadwaj Reddy
A relatively recent development in industrial flow measurement is the use of light to measure the velocity of a fluid through a pipe. One such technology referred to as Laser-Two-Focus
