Choosing a ﬂowmeter with a low permanent pressure loss can reduce pump or compressor work requirements and increase steam boiler capacities — thereby trimming annual energy costs.
Fluid ﬂowrate is an important measurement in the chemical process industries (CPI). Selecting an appropriate ﬂow measurement technique can be a daunting task. If several technologies are suitable for a particular application, minimizing energy costs can help narrow the choice. This article describes several types of ﬂowmeters and discusses ways to assess the energy costs associated with a particular ﬂow-metering technology.
