Volume Flow Rate Measurement

About the volume flow rate measurement

Volume flow rate is the appropriate way of quantifying the flow of all materials which are in a gaseous, liquid or semi-liquid slurry form (where solid particles are suspended in a liquid host). Materials in these forms are carried in pipes, and the common classes of instrument used for measuring the volume flow rate can be summarized as follows:

1. Differential pressure meters
2. Variable area meters
3. Positive-displacement meters
4. Turbine flowmeters
5. Electromagnetic flowmeters
6. Vortex-shedding flowmeters
7. Gate-type meters
8. Ultrasonic flowmeters
9. Cross-correlation flowmeters
10. Laser Doppler flowmeters.
