Water Flow Meters: Know the Various Types and Industrial Applications

As the very name suggests, a water flow

meter is a device that is used to measure the

flow of a liquid. In many cases, it also

measures the accurate amount of liquid

present in the pipelines. These water flow

measurement devices are equally utilized in

both domestic and industrial applications,

wherein they measure, monitor, and assess

the right amount or flow of liquid. This

further facilitates the proper management

of liquid and also detects if there is any

misuse or leakage leading to wastage.

These devices that are used to measure the

flow and amount of liquid in a specific

container (pipelines, tanks, industry-usable chambers, natural sources etc.) are available with

differing mechanisms and technical aspects. The variations in their operational modes and

technical features depend upon their areas of applications, functional values, and nature of liquid

that is assessed by them. Liquid flow measurement meters are used for a wide gamut of

industrial sectors, such as

Food and Beverage

Petrochemical Industries

Water Research

Fire Rescue Operation

Chemical Industries

Pharmaceutical Industries

Oil Industries

Fuel Industries

Paints, Grease, and Coating Industry

Sub-Marine Industry

What are the different Types of Liquid Flow Meters?

These are found in several designs and operational techniques according to their applicable

benefits and industries served by them. The following are the most common types available in

the market:

Differential Pressure Flow Meters: This type of meter has variations like Orifice Plates,

Flow Nozzles, Venturi Tubes, and Variable Area.

Velocity Flow Meters: The variations that fall under this type of meter are Pilot Tubes,

Calorimetric, Turbine, Vortex, Electromagnetic, and Ultrasonic Doppler.

Positive Displacement Flow Meters: The varieties of meters that work under this

principle are Reciprocating Piston Meters, Notating Disc, and Rotary Vane Meter.

Mass Flow Meters: This type of liquid measurement machine includes variations like

Thermal and Coriolis Flow Meter.

Open Channel Flow Meter: This type of meters can be divided into variations like Weirs

(Sharp Crested and Broad Crested) and Flumes (Parshall Flume and Palmer-Bowlus


How Does a Flow Meter Display the Measurement of the Liquid?

Both the analog and digital meters nowadays are available with high-tech features and

operational supremacy to ensure accurate and efficient measurement of liquid flow and amount.

Manufacturers of meters are more aware than before about the higher level of precision and

performance, which are the major concerns of the customers.

To achieve precise measurements of fluids, the meters are placed near to the feed lines and the

calculated results are displayed accurately on the meter boards. The common unit that is used to

read water meters is 'cubic feet' or 'inches', but the units vary according to the specifications of

the device. The readings or results are displayed in straight or circular registers, and each register

include a numeric pattern that calculate the total water usage with convenience.

What are the Basic Application Areas of a Liquid Flow Meter?

Following are the basic functions of this device:

1.These are applied in a variety of industrial sectors to measure the flow, usage, level,

velocity, and amount of fluids for different purposes

2.The device also measures the specific usage rate or amount of water consumption by

households in a particular area

3.It indicates leakage or misuse of liquid/water (if any) and hence saves it from being


4.It maintains a favorable pressure level by controlling the fluid direction and regulating its


Liquid flow measurement devices are built in a way that enables them to withstand the

inconsistencies of weather while providing accurate data. They operate with precision

irrespective of any variations in the climatic conditions or temperature.
