Positive Displacement Flowmeters

Positive displacement flowmeters measure the actual volume of fluid as it passes through the flowmeter. This is the only type of flow measurement technology currently available that provides direct flow measurement. These measurements are taken by entrapping fluid between components housed in a chamber.

While versatile, these flow meters are best suited for applications that do not involve fluids containing large particles or pockets of air, as this can affect the functionality of the flowmeter and reliability of your measurements. You should also factor in pressure drop when using positive displacement flowmeters for your fluid measurement applications.

Advantages of positive displacement flow meters include:

  • High accuracy
  • Suitable for corrosive fluids and sanitary applications
  • Handles a wide variety of fluid viscosities
  • Reduced by-pass/slippage
  • Compatibility with high-pressure applications
  • Low maintenance, especially when used with lubricating process media
