How to Mitigate the Effects of Pulsating Flow

How to Mitigate the Effects of Pulsating Flow

A new technical article from Titan Enterprises discusses how variation in flow velocity can impact flow measurement accuracy and how to mitigate any undesirable effects. It is well known that flowmeters are sensitive to effects such as pulsating flow in systems using diaphragm, peristaltic or piston pumps which can generate errors in flow measurement.

In a pulsating flow system, the velocity profile of the flow undergoes a dramatic change during each cycle of pulsation compared to even flow conditions. According to theory, to accurately...

Low-Flow Ultrasonic Flow Meters

Low-Flow Ultrasonic Flow Meters

Accurate and compact liquid flow meters of Bronkhorst’s ES-FLOW™ series operate on a unique liquid independent ultrasonic wave measuring principle and have been developed to measure low flow rates, e.g. of aditives, from 2 to 1500 l/h.

Thanks to the combination of a straight sensor tube with zero dead volume the flow meter is self-draining. The flow meter version with orbital TIG-welded flanges is CIP cleanable, and meets 3-A sanitary standards for hygienic applications. Wetted parts are made of stainless steel, the exterior...

FDT 3.0 and OPC UA: Enabling IT/OT Interoperability in the New Age of Automation

FDT 3.0 and OPC UA: Enabling IT/OT Interoperability in the New Age of Automation

Industrial manufacturing operations are in the early phase of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. This era will be driven not just by data, but also by the intelligence that can be derived from it and applied across the operational landscape of equipment, processes, facilities, and people. Integrating OT and IT systems is an important first step along the path.

By unifying OT and IT systems and practices in a converged system architecture, businesses can eliminate inefficiencies and barriers to interoperability, improve automation, and accelerate innovation.
