Liquid Flow Measurement

There are multiple methods used to measure the flow of a liquid.

Positive Displacement
Positive displacement (PD) flow meters measure the volumetric flow rate of a moving fluid by dividing the media into fixed, metered volumes (finite increments or volumes of the fluid). These devices consist of a chamber(s) that obstructs the media flow and a rotating or reciprocating mechanism that allows the passage of fixed-volume amounts. The number of parcels that pass through the chamber determines the media volume. The rate of revolution or reciprocation determines the flow rate.

Nutating Disc
Liquid enters a precision-machined measuring chamber containing a disc which nutates (wobbles). The measuring chamber contains an exact known quantity of fluid. Fluid pressure causes the disc to nutate and the control roller causes the nutating disc to make a complete cycle. The measuring chamber is filled and emptied each cycle. The nutations of the disc are transmitted by a gear train to a totalizer or pulse transmitter.
