Flow meters are advanced measuring instruments which are used to measure linear, non-linear, mass or volumetric flow of gases or liquids. It has its applications in various industries such as power and energy, marine, mining, water management, food and processing, building services, aerospace, agriculture, petrochemicals, pharmaceutical and more. Unlike the traditional gas or liquid measuring instrument such as the dip stick, handheld flow meter is accurate and highly reliable. This instrument will enable you to obtain all the necessary information you may need to measure exact oil receipts and to control oil consumption in boilers and generators. Oil measuring instruments are very useful wherever oil is received, stored and used as they are helpful in measuring, totalizing and recording oil flows precisely. The Oil Flow Meter can be easily installed in the pipeline to totalizing the flow of oil flowing through the pipeline.
