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...

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...
