Way back in 1981 as a relatively young man with a small family and £1000 redundancy money, my wife and I approached our bank manager for a small business start-up loan to manufacture liquid flow meters. His predictable response was why, and what is a flow meter used for anyway. In the interim years […]
When choosing and installing a flowmeter you should look at specification, specification and you’ve guessed it – specification. Get this wrong and you will never attain a trouble-free installation.
After careful consideration of application parameters including flow, pressure, fluid type and properties plus required function you should look at the proposed installation location for your […]

Achieving optimal performance from small bore flowmeters (less than 12.5mm / ½-inch) has very different challenges to those faced when using larger diameter meters. As the flows are lower, less energy is available in the liquid to convert to mechanical movement. The liquid is often running in the laminar flow region and viscosity and boundary layer […]
