Buying gas measurement instruments

There are many people who are interested in gas measurement instruments and the fact is that not all of them know how to actually pick the right one. One of these instruments is actually a flow meter and it is used in many kinds of applications in various industries, from pharmaceutical to petrochemicals, energy, agriculture, aerospace, mining, marine industry and more.

However, selecting gas measurement equipment is highly dependent on the specifics of your application, and people who are looking for gas measurement instruments will have to keep some tips in mind.

First of all, you need to know the maximum oil flow rate in the pipeline, the pressure and size of the pipeline, the chemical compatibility of the instruments whetted parts and fluid, the type of reading desired (local display or electronic signal), rate measurement, totalization or both, the cleanliness of the fluid and the viscosity. More importantly, you need to know what you want to measure, so that the gas monitoring equipment can be calibrated accordingly.

There are several kinds of flow meters and when trying to buy such gas measurement equipment, people should know which type of technology is best to get for their application. Some of the most widely used types of gas measurement instruments are vortex flow meters, differential pressure sensors, positive displacement flow meters, paddle wheel sensors, turbine, magnetic, ultrasonic, and mass gas flow meters, spring and piston meters and also Rota meters.

When buying gas measurement equipment individuals will need to make sure that the one they go with comes with all the features they need. Some of the most vital features include positive displacement, low pressure drop, reliability and, of course, accuracy.

What's the accuracy threshold on your gas measuring equipment? Is it dependent on the gas being measured?
