Flow Control and Measurement

Flow Control and Measurement – The quantification of bulk fluid movement.
Flow can be measured in a variety of ways. Positive-displacement flow meters accumulate a fixed volume of fluid and then count the number of times the volume is filled to measure flow. Other flow measurement methods rely on forces produced by the flowing stream as it overcomes a known constriction, to indirectly calculate flow. Flow may be measured by measuring the velocity of fluid over a known area. Measuring the flow of fluids is a crucial need in many industrial plants.
