Frequently Asked Questions About Variable Area Flow Meters
Q: What is a variable area flowmeter?
The variable area flow meter is an in-line flow meter used to measure the flow rate of liquids.
Q: How does a variable area flowmeter work?
Variable area flowmeters are very simple yet versatile flow measurement devices for use on all types of liquids. They operate on the variable area principle, whereby a flowing fluid changes the position of a float, piston, or vane to open a larger area for the passage of the fluid. The position of the float is used to give a direct visual indication of the flow rate.
Q: What are the advantages of a variable area flowmeter?
Variable area flowmeters are reasonably priced with simple construction making them easy to assemble and maintain. They do not require a power source to work and are simple to use with easily readable measurements.
