Metal Tube Variable Area Flow Meters

Durable and accurate flow measurement for high-pressure and extreme temperature applications.

Armored to deliver repeatable, reliable flow measurement in demanding high-pressure, high-temperature applications, metal tube variable area flow meters from Brooks Instrument set the global standard for rugged durability and sustained accuracy.

Globally approved for use in hazardous environments, Brooks offers a range of metal tube flow meters that include corrosion-resistant options for metering aggressive fluids and multiple connection options to make it easier to interface our meter into existing industrial systems. Engineered for long-lasting performance, all Brooks VA metal tube flow meters deliver excellent meter repeatability to help accurately measure and precisely control complex industrial processes.

Key Applications

  • Basic liquid or gas flow measurement
  • Rotating equipment flow measurement
  • High-pressure flow on offshore oil platforms
  • Chemical injection
  • Purge liquid or gas metering

Select the metal tube variable area flow meter that best meets your project requirements.
