Fluid flow measurement is very important in an industry such as the oil refinery ( refinery ) , electricity generation ( power plants , industrial chemicals ( petrochemicals ), Industrial waste treatment, food and beverage industry and the Pharmaceutical Industry .
In terms of the type of fluid to be measured by a flow meter apparatus is divided into 3 parts: a fluid flow meter for liquid, gas and fluid solid fluid ( flour, powder, sand and others ). Almost any type of flowmeter can be used to measure the fluid flow of liquid and some types can be used to measure fluid gas ( nitrogen, oxygen, compressed air, steam and other )
Installation of flow meters while the system there are also several types of inline system where the pipe through which the fluid to be cut, insertion system in which a fluid -carrying pipe and transducer in the holes of the flow meter can be installed in the pipe that had been hollowed out and clamp system on or clip on where transducer of flow meter stick enough in hand outside the pipe.
