# Flow Measurement

## Why square root is used in flow measurement?

Where Q = flow rate. DP = differential pressure. K = is a constant that depends on various factors such as the diameter of the pipe, orifice diameter, and so on. What is square root extraction in flow measurement? What is a square root extractor? Why flow rate is directly proportional to the square root …

## What is a Condensate Pot and how is it Installed?

What is a condensate pot and where is it used? A condensate pot is mostly utilized in steam pipelines to achieve accurate flow measurement. A condensate pot is capable to provide an interface between the vapor and the liquid. The condensate pot will be installed in the pipeline and it will be installed near the …

## Selection of Flowmeters based on fluids in the Sugar Industry

In this article, we will discuss the fluids in the sugar industry and cogeneration plants. The various fluid types are cane juice, imbibition water, syrup, massecuite, molasses, return condensate, boiler feedwater, main steam, exhaust steam, and so onâ€¦ The selection of the flow meter is a very important aspect because there are a variety of …

## What is a flow sensor and what are the different types of flow sensors?

Flow is the measurement of the fluid velocity per unit area in a pipe or a conduit. By using a flow sensor, we could measure the amount of gas, liquid, or vapor. A flow meter consists of a transducer and also a transmitter. Flow measurement methods Direct method In this type of flow measurement, the …

## What is a mechanical flow meter?

In certain conditions, we wonâ€™t be able to use an electronic flowmeter so in that case, we can use a mechanical flow meter. So unlike an electronic flow meter, the mechanical flowmeter has moving parts like turbine or rotors and thatâ€™s the major difference between an electronic flow meter and a mechanical flow meter. The …

## What is a velocity flow meter?

The flow rate can be calculated by measuring the velocity of the flow by using a velocity flow meter. These flow meters are used widely because they would provide the proper measurement of the fluid velocity. The velocity flow meters are really sensitive to the flow conditions. The operation of this flow meter is dependent …

## What is a meter prover?

A prover is a device that is used to check the flow meter and we can use this to check the liquid or the gas flowmeter and a prover can be used to calibrate the flow meter. We can test a flowmeter by using a prover, the meter proving is done to determine the accuracy …

## What is a target flow meter?

A target meter is used to measure the dirty or corrosive liquids, not all the fluids would be clean and we need to measure the dirty fluids and it can be done by using a target meter. A target meter can also be used to measure the gases with dust particles. The target meter would …

## What is an open channel flow measurement?

What is an open channel flow? The open channel flow is the flow of the liquid on a free surface, some of the open channel flows are dams and irrigation channels. The surface pressure will be equal to the atmospheric pressure in an open channel. There is some human-made open-channel flow and they are drainage …

## What is the importance of flow measurement in process control?

The measurement of flow is an important part of the process control, it could be the frequently measured variable in an industrial process plant. The importance of the flow measurement is that we would be able to determine the purchased material and also the sold material, and due to this very accurate flow measurement is …
