Flow Meters

Flow Meters Manufacturer and Supplier in India

Fidicon Devices India is a company that manufactures and supplies various types of flow meters. Flow meters are devices that are used to measure the flow rate of a fluid in a pipeline or vessel.

What is a Flow Meter?

A flow metre (or flow sensor) is a type of flow instrument that measures linear, non-linear, mass, or volumetric flow rates to indicate the amount of liquid, gas, or vapour moving through a pipe or conduit. Because flow control is frequently required, measuring the flow of liquids and gases is a critical requirement for many industrial applications - and there are many different types of flow metres that can be used depending on the application.

When selecting a flow metre, consider intangible factors such as plant personnel familiarity, calibration and maintenance experience, spare parts availability, and mean time between failure history, among others, at the specific plant site.

It is also recommended that the installation cost be calculated only after these steps have been completed. One of the most common flow measurement errors is the reversal of this sequence: instead of selecting a sensor that will perform properly, an attempt is made to justify the use of a device because it is less expensive. Those "cheap" purchases can lead to the most expensive installations.

How to Choose a Flow Meter

A clear understanding of the requirements of the specific application is the foundation of good flow metre selection. As a result, time should be spent thoroughly evaluating the nature of the process fluid and the overall installation. The process of developing specifications that state the application requirements should be systematic and step-by-step.
