Because paddlewheel flow meters are so easy to install and to operate, the overall cost of ownership goes way down and just goes to show that paddlewheel flow meters offer some of the best value in the flow meter industry.
Paddlewheel flow meters can be installed both vertically and horizontally, and the flow can be in either direction which is something that is not offered by most other styles of flow meters. Most of the time paddlewheel flow meters deal with measuring the flow of water, but they are also capable of reading the flow of viscous fluids as well.
It is important to fully understand your application to see if a paddlewheel flow meter is right for you, while they are a great fit for most applications there are a few instances where other flow meters would offer more value. However, the paddlewheel flow meter offers high accuracy, ease of use, and so much more. If you are interested in learning more about paddlewheel flow meters or are curious to see if they fit your application, be sure to contact a trusted flow meter manufacturer who will work with you to provide you with the best possible solution based on your needs and specifications.
Perhaps the biggest downside to the paddlewheel flow meter is the maintenance involved in keeping the meter running optimally. This is just a small downside to a product that offers so much value for just about any system. We highly recommend paddlewheel flow meters to anyone who requires high accuracy but still needs a budget friendly product. They measure the rate of flow, they are easy to install, and can measure flow in either direction.
