    McCrometer, Inc., a globally recognized flow meter manufacturer, recently announced the redesign of the dial faces that accompany its propeller meters. McCrometer’s McPropeller offers digital displays as well as analog (dial) displays as well, measuring flow in a variety of units.

  2. Long Term Performance Of V-Cone Flow Meters
    7/3/2019

    This paper presents the results of 12 V-Cone DP Flow meters tested over a period of 17 years. Service applications for the V-Cones included natural gas as well as coke oven gas measurement, a dirty aggressive fluid that is problematic over long period of time for most flow meters. All testing was conducted in air by a 3rd party calibration laboratory, CEESI Colorado. Results will be presented for each of the meters over the 17 year span. Conclusions and recommendations will be made to the long term performance and recalibration intervals for the V-Cone flow meter.
