  • Mechanical and Gear Meters for Non-Lubricant Fluids
  • Rotameters / Variable Area (Glass and Metal Tubes)
  • Volumetric Flow Meters
  • Orifice Plates and Nozzles
  • Differential Pressure Flow Meters
  • Flow Switch
  • Vane and Paddlewheel Flow Sensor

Why calibrate?

Key elements in determining compliance with national and international standards are the validity and accuracy of inspection, measurement and test results. As flow meter performances degrade over time, these instruments must be calibrated to provide the necessary level of confidence in the results of the tests being conducted.

There are several reasons why a flow meter falls out of calibration: physical modifications may occur from corrosion or dirt within the process; internal parts degrade slowly and will eventually have an impact on meter performance or flow meter may receive mechanical or pneumatic impacts resulting from process variations, improper installation or initialization or procedure.

Technology Cause
Coriolis

Coating and wear of the flow tube

Turbine

Bearings affected by chemicals or dirt; bearing service affects calibration; rotors wear

Variable Area

Material build-up; clogging; tube abrasion

Magnetic

Liner damage; electrode coating

Positive Displacement

Dirty liquids, corrosion and abrasion change the volume; bearing wear degrades accuracy; gear service affects calibration; solids can cause plugging

Differential Pressure

Orifice plates, nozzles and venturis are subject to wear: orifices plate get knocked out of position. Pitot tubes become clogged

Ultrasonic

Changes in the sonic properties of the fluids; lack of contact between transducer and pipe wall

Vortex

Flow meter mounted improperly in pipe; vibration; shedder wear
