Bronkhorst High-Tech announces the availability of EtherNet/IP and Modbus-TCP interface options for their mass flow meters and controllers, as well as their digital pressure controllers. Like the previously developed EtherCAT and Profinet communication protocols, EtherNet/IP and Modbus-TCP interfaces are based on Ethernet communication.Read more
Flow Control and Measurement
Fluid Flow Control
Flow control is an advancing field of fluid dynamics, that describes the flow of liquids, gases and plasmas. Flow control of fluids can be accomplished by passive (require no energy) or active devices (require energy). Controlling and measuring the fluid flow is increasingly incorporated in many industries, ranging from aviation and defense, to the pharmaceutical industry.
Fluid Flow Measurement
Flow measurement is the determination of bulk fluid movement. The flow of fluids can be measured in a variety of ways. Measuring the flow of fluids is a critical need in many industrial plants. This Technology Zone offers an insight into the latest innovations in fluid flow measurement and control.

Engineers challenged with designing or operating waste-to-energy incineration plants will find the ST80, ST100 and MT100 Thermal Mass Flow Meters from Fluid Components International (FCI) offer them accuracy, repeatability, ease of installation and low maintenance to enhance plant performance while driving costs down.Read more
The addition of the Siemens SITRANS store IQ hardware solution and App allows the City of Decatur immediate access to the flow rate, totalizer and head measurement on their smart phone, tablet or from their computer.Read more
Process flow meters are integral to processes that contain liquids, gases or steam. Without the ability to monitor fluid flow, operators are often unable to control the throughput. Ultrasonic flow meters enable our customers to accurately measure the volume and velocity of various process liquids, whether polluted or ultra-pure.Read more
