What is an inline flow meter?

In line flow meter is a flow meter with the function of displaying flow rate on-site. The sensor of the flow meter is installed on the fluid pipe. Digital display or pointer shows the flow rate on the spot.

In-line flowmeters could be digital and mechanical flow meters. Common in-line flowmeters include turbine flowmeters, electromagnetic flowmeters, and ultrasonic flowmeters. With stainless steel material, analog, and 4-20mA output, in-line flow meters can measure and control inline flow.

Features of In-line Flow Meters

  • Local LCD display flow rate.
  • Signal output: analog, 4-20mA, pulse, and so on.
  • Liquid, Gas pipe flow measurement.
  • Special materials can be selected depending on the working conditions.
    Such as PTFE
  • Remote type is available.
