Terms Used in Industry Briefly Explained: Part 1

Several terms are used in our industry finding their origin in the European Union. Sometimes these expressions are misunderstood, so we thought perhaps it would be worthwhile to briefly explain these terms here in this blog.    The CE Marking CE Marking stands for Conformité Européenne and is a mandatory conformity marking for products sold …

What Flow Units Do You Want To Use?

When it comes to gas measurement, what’s the difference between Standard and Normal? It’s basically the reference conditions. Standard and Normal are different depending on which country you’re in and what industry it’s applied to. However, if you know the reference conditions, e.g. 0°C and 1 bar, then everything can be calculated. Mass flow of …

An Explanation of the Term Linearity

Continuing in our objective to describe flow meter terms to provide a better understanding of commercialized language, we have decided to attempt an explanation of linearity. The flowmeter’s ability to remain within its defined limits over the entire specified flow range is its linearity. The standard technique of expressing the term linearity is known as …

The Vocabulary of Liquid Flow Meters: An Explanation of Terms

Since liquid flow meter performance can be described in a variety of terms, we have decided to explain the definitions associated with them in language that is less commercialized. These liquid flow meter terms are not meant to be published in strict standards, but rather to be understood in a more accessible language. Within the …

Flowmeters for Chemical Injection

Most engineers know that chemical injection is the process that assists in the production of oil. To provide a degree of protection, various chemicals are injected into the crude oil. For instance, a scale inhibitor will prevent the build-up of scale on the fittings, as well as the pipes used to transport the oil during …
