Using Differential Pressure to Measure Flow

Check out this demo to see how differential pressure transimitters can be used to measure flow. For more information contact your friends at Stromquist & Company

Differential Pressure High and Low Ports

Differential Pressure combined with and inline flow element is a very popular way to measure flow. Stromquist & Company can handle your flow measurement needs. A great application is measuring gas. It is critical to have a good understanding of what is meant by “high and low pressure ports”.

Gas Metering with Honeywell Transmitter

Gas metering is a big part of what we offer customers. One product that has proven to be very successful is the Honeywell Smart Multivariable (SMV) Transmitter.  It is an industry leader – there are no others on the market that work as well.  It measures the gas pressure & temperature and measures a differential pressure across a primary element.  The primary element can be an orifice plate or a Preso Ellipse pitot tube.  It creates a differential pressure that we measure and relate to flow (the square root of the pressure drop is proportional to the flow rate).  The SMV calculates a corrected flow by accounting for the compressibility of the gas along with the pressure and temperature that exist in the pipe.  It is quite an involved calculation that is pre-loaded into the transmitter and set up using a software wizard.  Please keep it in mind for gas metering applications – it is an affordable alternative.  For under $4000 you can measure big flows accurately with easy installation.

Not Just the Hard to Find Parts

Many people think of Stromquist when it comes to buying those “hard to find” parts — the old or obsolete parts or those that just aren’t very common. We’re well known for our great counter and inside sales staff who find matches and replacements for such items. While we do appreciate that you think of us for these, we want you to also think of us for those everyday, run of the mill parts like thermostats, valves, gauges and sensors. Some people automatically go to the bigger supply house chains for these types of parts and only come to Stromquist for the more elusive items. So we would like to ask that you give us a try on your “regular” parts too. We stock a wide range of Honeywell, Johnson Controls, Schneider Electric (formerly TAC/Invensys), Belimo, White Rodgers and many more. And we’re competitive on our pricing. The next time you need that simple thermostat, a relay or pneumatic fittings, give us a call. We’d be happy to pull one off the shelf for you in addition to finding the replacement for that rusty part that’s 25 years old.
