Hazel Park, MI (PRWEB) May 2, 2008
Universal Flow Monitors, Inc. has upgraded its website resource that enables users to select the best-value flowmeter technology for the type of fluid they are using.
The Universal Flow Monitors website, http://www.flowmeters.com, now employs rollover interfaces to provide more user-friendly information for determining the proper technology for an application. The interfaces replace a complex technology chart and enable users to simply move their mouse pointer to the name of a flowmeter technology for a popup summary of that technology's benefits and features.
Visitors to http://www.flowmeters.com go to "Flowmeter Technologies" on the homepage and click on a flow category (liquid, slurry, gas or steam) for a list of flow types in that category. Users then click on a flow type for a list of appropriate flowmeter technologies and move their mouse pointer to a technology for an immediate popup analysis.
The online resource analyzes and compares flowmeter technologies in such areas as cost, accuracy, installation requirements, output type, on-unit display availability, power requirements, flow switching availability, rangability, fluid conductivity and response time.
Flow types in the resource include cooling water; clean and dirty water; lubricating oil; corrosive, open channel, cryogenic and viscous liquids; clean oil; abrasive and fibrous slurries; clean and dirty gases; gases used in automation; compressed air; and saturated and superheated steam.
Technologies include vortex shedding, variable area, vane, Coriolis, differential pressure (averaging Pitot, elbow, flow nozzle, Laminar flow element, orifice, Pitot tube, venturi, wedge and roots), insertion mag, magnetic, paddlewheel, positive displacement (nutating disc, oscillating piston and oval gear), target, thermal, turbine, ultrasonic transit time, rotameter and ultrasonic doppler.
Flowmeters.com also provides a flowmeter selector tool with links on the left side of the homepage to options for various flow types and numerous industries. Users can click on the flow type they need to measure or the industry related to their application. They are linked to flowmeters in that category that best meet their needs in terms of performance and price.
Visitors to Flowmeters.com also can find an overview of flow measurement and flowmeters and a glossary of flow terminology.
