Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) January 2, 2007
Flow Line Options (http://www.flowlineoptions.com) has been a distributor and manufacturer of fluid process instrumentation for over 18 years. For much of that time, one of its key product lines included MEM Flowmeters, both under the original owner, Meter Equipment Manufacturing, Inc., and subsequent owner, ROL, Inc. When ROL ceased operations in April 2006, it left a void in Flow Line's product line.
Flow Line Options Corp. announced today that it has acquired inventory and all rights to the Meter Equipment Manufacturing (MEM) flowmeter product line. MEM flow meters were renowned for their tough, simple and accurate flow measurement, but have been unavailable since April 2006. Flow Line will resume manufacturing of these direct reading flowmeters in the first quarter of 2007.
Flow Line is uniquely qualified to return the MEM meters to the marketplace. Flow Line Options' president, David Grumney, has more than 25 years experience in specifying and selling these meters. Said Mr. Grumney, "It was an easy decision to acquire MEM Flow Meters when presented with the opportunity. Since April 2006, not a week has gone by without several calls about MEM flow meters, and it was frustrating to all that the meters were unavailable. We're happy to bring them back."
Further, Flow Line has hired MEM's former production manager, and retained the product's inventor as a consultant. "We've been able to restore the original collaboration of sales, manufacturing, and engineering expertise specific to the MEM Flow Meters. So customers can be confident that we'll meet their future metering needs and support their existing meters!"
MEM Flow Meters measure the flow rate of a wide variety of fluids, including water, oils, coolants, compressed air and gases, vacuum, combustion gases and atmospheres, steam, acids, and caustics. In addition to mechanical rate of flow measurement, the meters offer options for total and grand totals, mass outputs, 4-20mA remote readouts, alarms and flow switches, plus custom engineered flowmetering systems.
