Flow Measurement Instrumentation Procurement in the US
This report is intended to assist buyers of flow measurement instrumentation. Flow measurement instruments determine the flow rate of liquid, gases or slurries at a single point in a channel. In an industrial setting, accurate flow measurements are required to determine the amount of material going through open or closed channels. These devices are essential in helping buyers maintain product quality and cost, as well as regulatory compliance. Flow measurement instruments include mass, ultrasonic, positive displacement, turbine, paddlewheel and vortex meters. Methods and accuracy of flow measurement vary across devices. This report excludes fluid regulators, gas pressure regulators, downhole instrumentation, pressure sensors, level sensors, flow switches and valves.
