OAK CREEK – WISCONSIN A large manufacturer of water softeners replaced failing turbine meters with AW-LAKE TRG Turbine Flow Meters for more accurate and dependable low flow water metering in its reverse osmosis filter system. Several test stands within the facility require high accuracy measurement of water pumped through assorted valves and orifices at very low flow rates to compare results to expected conditions.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.

RUURLO – As natural gas is combustible and odorless by nature, the government requires some safety measures here. Many countries have established safety regulations how to handle natural gas and which gas needs odorisation. This is mostly done by the Health and Safety department (HSE) of the local government. Why does gas smell when it is odorless by nature? This is the point where gas odorisation comes in.Read more
