Advantages of Sensor Technology: Accuracy and Meter Calibration

Posted by TechStar on Jun 14, 2022 3:48:00 PM

The accuracy of a thermal mass flow meter is dependent upon the technology type and the quality of the materials used for the meter’s sensor design. A well-designed sensor is made to measure flow accurately over a long period of time with minimal drift, independent of recalibration and calibration validation diagnostics. For a thermal mass flow meter, the materials used in the manufacture of the sensor play a vital role in the overall performance of the sensor. The materials must create the best environment for heat transfer - the essential principle of thermal mass flow measurement - or the accuracy and response time suffer.

Ski resorts in North America depend on snowfall for enthusiasts to enjoy winter sports such as skiing and snowboarding. However, when nature does not cooperate, artificial snow is required to maintain the base level. Artificial snow consists of small particles of ice that are used to increase the snowpack. It is produced by a machine that uses a high-pressure pump to spray a mist of water into the cold air. The water droplets crystallize to form artificial snow.

Five Mistakes When Selecting a Flowmeter

Posted by TechStar on Feb 3, 2022 10:12:00 AM

Flowmeters play a critical role in today’s process world. As technology has advanced through the decades, a variety of flowmeter technologies has expanded the ways, customers, control and monitor their utilities, steam, fiscal metering, etc. Today, a few of the top flowmeters on the market are the Coriolis, magnetic, vortex, ultrasonic, differential pressure, and variable area meters. Several other technologies, such as turbine, thermal mass, and positive displacement, are also available. Since each flowmeter has positive and negative attributes, careful consideration is required to avoid purchasing a technology that is inappropriate to the application.

Wirelessly Enabling Flow Meters

Posted by TechStar on Aug 20, 2020 11:26:00 AM

Measuring the flow of a fluid or gas is essential to many industrial processes. Many technologies exist to measure flow including Electromagnetic, Ultrasonic, Turbine, Vortex, Positive Displacement, Coriolis, and Thermal Mass flow meters. The ability to monitor the flow rate and flow totals from various flow meters wirelessly enables users to avoid costly conduit runs from the point of the flow measurement back to a central controller.
