Gear flowmeter ideal for oil industry

July 8, 2009
The positive displacement spur gear flow meter is specifically designed to maintain high-accuracies at very low-flow rates, even with low-viscosity liquids. This is important to engineers designing systems requiring flow measurement of continuous flows at rates as low as 3cc/min. or lower, depending on liquid viscosity. With a resolution of 40 pulses/cc, it gives the ability to measure shot volumes as low as 5cc’s with accuracies of +/-0.5 percent or better, which is especially important in the oil & gas industry where many applications are low-volume and low-flow applications.
