Since its invention more than 100 years ago, variable area (VA) flow meter technology has grown in popularity for a variety of reasons. In addition to being a cost-effective solution to measuring the flow of liquid, gas and steam, these devices offer excellent measurement repeatability, are simple to install and maintain, do not require external power for operation, have a low pressure drop, and can be made from a variety of materials.
Globalization over the last few decades has brought great change to the conditions in VA meter applications. Specifically, chemical, petrochemical, oil and gas, and liquid petroleum gas applications have become more demanding.
