For centuries we have relied on flowmeters from the simplest applications to manage water rationing to the complex electronic systems of today. Some of the old technology is still used today to manage water in farming but today they are used in many other critical situations. Some uses you may be familiar with are the gas pump, water meter, electric meter and many others.
The use of flowmeters goes way beyond the simple, obvious or the traditional uses. Today flowmeters are used in many parts of all manufacturing operations. For instance flow meters are used with flow control devices to ensure a steady supply of lubricants to moving parts of machinery. If too much lubricant is delivered it can interfere with operations and adversely affect the final product. While too much lubricant can be a bad thing, not enough lubricants can mean broken tools or having to replace them more often than you would otherwise.
On the Internet you can find a wealth of information about flowmeters. In the past you would have learn about product specs by requesting data sheets that would then be mailed out to you. This was a slow and tedious process. Today you can visit manufacturer and distributors websites to find out the same information. Our listings below should help ease the burden for your research.
