A new book of a new two-volume set on flowmeter technology is now available from CRC Press.
The set, Advances in Flowmeter Technology by Jesse Yoder discusses the history, operating principles, growth factors, representative companies, and frontiers of research for all 10 types of flowmeters.
The first volume, New Technology Flowmeters, released on September 6, 2022, was followed by the second volume, Conventional Flowmeters on December 15.
The main purpose of New-Technology Flowmeters is to provide an easy-to-understand yet in-depth look at the five types of flowmeters in the fast-growing new-technology segment -Coriolis, magnetic, ultrasonic, vortex, and thermal.
Topics include how these meters work, the major suppliers, typical applications, and the advantages of each type of meter.
It also looks at technological advances and the frontiers of research for each meter type. including larger line sizes in Coriolis meters in the last decade, from 6 inches to 16 inches; This includes improvements in Coriolis straight tube meters; introduction and increasing popularity of two-wire magmeters; battery-operated and wireless magmeters; rapid growth in multipath ultrasonic meters for custody transfer of natural gas; increasing popularity of multivariable and dual-meter vortex meters and enhanced accuracy, reliability, redundancy, cost, materials and use of communication protocols.
The book is designed to serve as a basic resource for the general public as well as for professionals who are involved with flow measurement and want to deepen their knowledge.
“Flow is all around us, whether we’re talking about air, water, traffic, or gasoline, yet people take it for granted,” said Yoder.
“Flowmeters are everywhere, measuring liquids and gases out at sea on oil rigs, in factories, and even in apartment complexes. This book addresses the many different types of flowmeters. It gives their history, current developments, and areas for future research. I hope this book will help people appreciate the fascinating world of flowmeters and flow measurement just a little bit more.”
New-Technology Flowmeters is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other online sites.
