Calibrating Gas Meters in Water

Calibrating Gas Meters in Water

McCrometer’s V-Cone® flow meter, patented in 1985 and popular for industries such as oil and gas, offers the benefit of a calibration from the factory prior to shipping to the installation site. This calibration, testing the meter against the entire Reynolds range, is...

Stacking Transmitters: Getting the Most Out of Your V-Cone

Stacking Transmitters: Getting the Most Out of Your V-Cone

While it’s true that the V-Cone® primary element does the flow measuring, the transmitter is also an important component to effective flow measurement, and the decision-making that results from that data collection. For high turndown applications, customers have the...

The V-Cone and External Vibrations

The V-Cone and External Vibrations

Contrary to the popular Beach Boys song, vibrations aren’t always good – especially when they interfere with the functionality of your flow meter. In busy spaces where neighboring equipment gives off varying frequencies, having a flow meter that can mitigate...

V-Cone vs. Orifice Plate: Similarities and Differences

V-Cone vs. Orifice Plate: Similarities and Differences

McCrometer invented the V-Cone® in 1985 and has set a standard for cone-style meters ever since. However, despite that innovation, orifice plates are a more widely implemented differential pressure (DP) flow meter, especially when considered by engineers for flow...

V-Cone vs. Coriolis: A Comparison

V-Cone vs. Coriolis: A Comparison

When engineers seek out a meter for high accuracy measurement, two potential options emerge that differ in technology: the Coriolis and the V-Cone®. So how do these meters compare in application and specs? Let’s review. Differing Technologies for Flow Projects The...

V-Cone vs. Venturi: A Comparison

V-Cone vs. Venturi: A Comparison

The “V” in V-Cone® is often mistaken to mean “Venturi-Cone,” however, this is not the case. The “V” represents the shape of the cone in the meter itself, designed to measure flow via the Bernoulli principle. Both the V-Cone and the Venturi are both differential...
