Mass Flow Meter
Mass flow meters are devices that are used to measure the rate of flow of a liquid as it passes through a system.
Typically, flow meters are separated based on how they measure the flow, either by volume per unit time or mass per unit time. These two categories separate quite a few different flow meters by simply looking if the flow meter measures the flow of fluid by volume or if the flow meter looks at the mass of fluid that is passing through the system.
Now within these two broad categories there are sub-categories; there are two common types of mass flow meters within the mass flow meter category.
The first is known as a Coriolis flow meter which gets its name due to the fact that it utilizes the Coriolis effect to get the job done. The second type of mass flow meter is the thermal mass flow meter which uses heat transfer principles in order to measure the mass flow rate. Read More…
