This section provides an overview for current meters as well as their applications and principles. Also, please take a look at the list of 9 current meter manufacturers and their company rankings.
Table of Contents
A current meter is a device used to measure the velocity of water flowing in a river or air being discarded from a duct. A wide range of measurement principles have been developed, including those that use impeller rotation and those that use the Doppler effect of ultrasonic waves. The device can also function as a switch by incorporating a display, communication device, and other components. When measuring with an impeller, it is important to select a product that is designed to prevent foreign matter from entering and a product that is easy to maintain.
Current meters are used in a wide range of applications, including surveys of rivers and dams, and in production plants. Examples of use include river velocity surveys, exhaust gas velocity surveys, on-site control of resin inflow velocities, and control of chemical solution inflow velocities. When selecting a current meter, it is necessary to consider the range of velocities to be measured that it supports, durability, ease of maintenance, and whether it is a non-contact or contact type. Some current meters have built-in communication devices that allow monitoring from a distance, which is useful for improving efficiency.
The measuring principle of current meters is divided into two types: electric current meters using an impeller, and ultrasonic current meters. Current meters consist of a measuring section, a device that processes information, such as electrical signals emitted from the measuring section, and a communication device.
