The longstanding popularity of variable area flow meters is well warranted, as it’s been the go-to piece of equipment for the measurement of gas, liquid and steam flow for a century. But as the times change and processing of petrochemicals and other petroleum-based products becomes more globalized, finding cost-effective and reliable measurement devices is growing in importance.
Our free webinar, “One World One Product: Bringing a Global Perspective to Metal Tube Variable Area Flow Meters,” on April 16 you will give you the opportunity to learn about the most recent innovations in VA flow meters, including a brand new product just entering the market now.
You will learn how to use the best product for your project or company to minimize plant downtime, get tips on making sure you have the right VA meter for your specs, and more. Receive a thorough overview of exactly how a VA meter works from our experts, as well as tips on how to find a supplier that best suits your service, inspection, and team needs.
The key speaker will be Jim Dillon, a global product manager at Brooks Instrument and an expert in the field of both rotameters and engineering. So come and learn from the best. You can enroll by clicking here.
I was just informed that as of yesterday, January 3, 2012, our long-time Brooks sales rep, Webco Controls, Inc, merged with Miller Energy Inc. This is pretty exciting news for our customers in the Northeast United States who deal with Webco. This merger will really enhance the technical inside sales support for customers as well as providing them a very broad range of instrumentation and valve manufacturers. Read more…
While many of you use Brooks mass flow controllers or variable area flow meters for gas flow measurement and control, you might not know that Brooks also manufactures an exceptional capacitance manometer series for vacuum measurement applications – the XacTorr™ series capacitance manometers.
Listen to Jan Christensen talk about how fuel cell manufacturers use test stands to simulate the performance of fuel cells. These test stands consist of systems for mixing, delivering and humidifying gases, and these all depend on reliable flow measurement and control. In modern test stations, mass flow controllers are the preferred choice for controlling gases.
A rotameter (variable area meter) is a flow meter that measures volumetric flow of liquids and gases. The technique for measuring flow is accomplished by a freely moving float finding equilibrium in a tapered tube. The flow rate is then read from either a scale next to the tube or a scale on the tube.
