Global Intelligent Flow Meter Market Overview
A flow meter is a device or an instrument used to measure linear, non-linear, mass or volumetric flow rate of a liquid or a gas. Flow meter is referred by various names such as flow gauge, flow indicator, liquid meter, depending upon the particular industry; however the function, to measure flow, remains the same. Demand of intelligent flow meters is increasing day by day as they are highly accurate, precise, stable and reliable for flow calibration. Intelligent flow meters are not affected by temperature, viscosity, density and suspended particulates.
Intelligent flow meters are widely used for diagnostic information, along with measurement of data, which will stimulate the growth of intelligent flow meter market globally. Chemical, food & beverages, oil & gas, metals & mining, pulp & paper, pharmaceuticals are the few industries where intelligent flow meter is widely used. Among various industries, there is a high demand of intelligent flow meter in Oil & Gas industry. Magnet flow meter holds the large amount of share of the intelligent flow meter market as it is used for the measurement of dirty water.
