Choosing a mass flow meter necessitates some understanding of what is being measured. Gases and liquids can both be quantified using scales that calculate flow in kilograms per second or liters per second relative to a substance’s density. Each device is unique, and you cannot use the same water flow meter for a sewage plant and drinking water. However, if you follow the tips below, selecting the best one for you will be simple.
Make a list of the substances that will be measured: is it a liquid or a gas? If so, what kind of liquid or gas are you using? Is the fluid contaminated or clean? Do you prefer to process data manually or remotely? And what about the plant’s and material’s temperature, is it hot or cold? To obtain an accurate reading, a hot water measurement may necessitate the use of a scale that compensates for temperature changes. Include the following items on your checklist: fluid viscosity, corrosion and conductivity properties, toxicity (if any), and pipe type. Consider whether they are damp, corrosive, toxic, explosive, or clean when working with gases.
Coriolis, differential pressure, energy, magnetism, open channel, mega displacement, thermal, turbine, ultrasound, variable area, and vortex are just a few water flow or mass meters available. Each has its own set of benefits and drawbacks.
Many companies sell these devices, but the best manufacturers have the best engineers to help you determine plant specifications with an easy-to-follow guide that will help you select the perfect product for your needs. It would be best to look for a company with a strong local presence and qualified partners in North and South America, Asia, Europe, Africa, and the Middle East. This reduces the potential shutdown time when mass flowmeters encounter an impediment because the manufacturer can immediately dispatch engineers. In addition, the manufacturer must be able to provide a competitive price and technical training for your employees, application assistance, or repair and maintenance attention.
In the first place, this equipment is present. Municipalities charge manufacturing companies based on the amount of water they use in their processes. Even though they use a significant amount of the intake water in their operations, they are charged on the same amount of water discharged to the environment.
Saving money The process of listing plant specifications will cost money if the number of human resources hours is considered alone. Then you must find the best technology to meet your requirements. An educated guess would place the cost somewhere between 30-40% of the cost of sales. There are online configurations, such as Smart Matrix, that allow you to point and click to select the mass flowmeter that will be the best fit for your plant’s needs. Once you’ve decided on a product, you can look for technical information online or ask the installation engineer to go over the features with you.
