FLOW CONTROL AND MEASUREMENT WHITE PAPERS AND CASE STUDIES
With the introduction of new measurement technologies and the myriad of performance claims from sale literature, it’s easy to lose sight of the important elements that an effective flow meter offers no matter what technology is used. Long known for their longevity, reliability, and long term performance, Venturi meters provide the widest variety of measurement options in piped systems for liquids, gas, steam, and mixed media of any metering technology – all while offering the highest degree of traceable accuracy.

How To Select A Flowmeter Technology To Minimize Annual Energy Costs
Selecting the right technology for a flow measurement application can be a daunting task. In the case that several technologies will work for a particular application, minimizing energy costs can help narrow the selection. This article discusses ways to assess the energy costs associated with a particular flowmeter technology to inform your decision.
How Larger Flow Meters Speak Volumes
As the price of water continues to increase, errors in flow measurement are magnified for distribution networks that transport large volumes of water. These systems often incorporate meters over 48 inches in diameter, which can be a challenge to calibrate. Learn how choosing the proper calibration method can ensure the most accurate measurements. By Richard Lowrie, Water and Wastwater Industry Specialist, KROHNE, Inc.
How Meter Nozzles Can Deliver Accuracy In Municipal Treatment Facilities
The United States Environmental Protection Agency claims there are approximately 155,000 public water systems in the nation and the public drinking water systems regulated by EPA provide drinking water to 90 percent of Americans. To put this in perspective, a family of four statistically uses 400 gallons of water daily. By Jeff Smith, Primary Flow Signal
Understanding Flowmeters And Their Pros And Cons One of the most critical measurements in the processing industries is rate of flow. In 2010, the ARC Advisory Group estimated the total instrumentation market (not including process analytical devices) to be $13.4B. By Ron DiGiacomo, ABB Measurement Products
Swirl Flowmeter Challenges Established Vortex Technology The swirl flowmeter advances vortex flow technology by improving accuracy, simplifying installation, increasing turndown, and reducing cost of ownership. By Steve Pagano
Process Temperature Measurement Practice--Radiation Thermometry Non-contacting temperature measurement techniques for the processing industries complement thermocouple and RTD sensors. By Gary Freeman, ABB Measurement Products
Isolation Seals Protect Transmitters When Measuring Difficult Fluids
Isolation seals protect transmitters while faithfully conveying pressure signals. They enhance the measurement of not only pressure and vacuum, but also of derived variables, including flowrate, level, and density. Because of their measurement flexibility, electronic differential pressure (DP) transmitters are widespread throughout industrial and municipal processes.

FLOW CONTROL AND MEASUREMENT
FLOW CONTROL AND MEASUREMENT
Flow measurement can be defined as quantification of the movement of water in a given channel. Flow can be measured either by determining the displacement and/or Velocity of the water. Water meters usually control measure and display total usage in cubic meters, on either mechanical or electronic registers.
Flow can be divided into two main flows which are: Open channel flow and Closed conduit flow. Flow is controlled by use of valves at intervals to either to slow down, allow faster flow or completely shut down the flow. Some water meters usually perform both the function or making readings and controlling flow while others just conduct measuring only.
Meters for reclaimed water contain special lavender register covers show that the water is non-potable. Velocity-type meters measure the velocity of flow through a meter of a known internal capacity. The speed of the flow can then be converted into volume of flow for usage. Since Multi-jet meters are usually very accurate in small sizes they are normally used for residential and smaller commercial uses. Turbine meters are not as accurate as jet meters and displacement meters at low flow rates.
A compound meter is used where high flow rates are necessary. Magnetic flow meters are a velocity-type water meter, except that they use electromagnetic properties to determine the water flow velocity. In water treatment plants, measurement and control devices can be installed in the following locations: within interceptors or manholes, the head of the plant, in the force mains that lead to main tanks etc. Automatic Meter Reading has compelled producers to build pulse or encoder registers to provide electronic output for radio transmitters, reading storage devices, and data logging devices.
