Your Go-To Guide for ANSI 150 Class Pipe Specifications

These ANSI 150 Class Pipe specifications come in handy when working with large flow meters, valves, and other equipment.

How to Convert from Mesh to Micron for Filtration Products

The Mesh to Micron Chart is very handy when working with filtration products and strainers. We take the guesswork out of conversions from inches to microns or millimeters.

How Does the Hedland Variable Area Flow Meter Work?

Variable area flow meters measure the volumetric flow rate of liquids and gases. See how Hedland takes a unique approach to traditional flow meters.

Calculating Correction Factors

Corrections for more or less dense fluids can be made to Hedland's standard scales using the following correction equations. See two methods for fluid correction.

How Do Ultrasonic Flow Meters Work?

Ultrasonic Flow Meters are a non-invasive flow technology that uses sensors and transducers to generate ultrasonic sound waves which are directed into the flow and used to determine flow velocities.

Variable Area Flow Meters

A variable area meter is a flow meter that measures volumetric flow of liquids and gases. They are also known as rotameters and variable area meters. 

Oval Gear Meters

If the fluid you're measuring is clean, but too viscous for a turbine meter, consider using an oval gear meter. Learn more about the operation and applications.
