Non-Destructive Tests: What Is It, and Do You Need One?

Non-Destructive Tests: What Is It, and Do You Need One?

While there are many quality control procedures McCrometer performs to ensure a meter is manufactured to spec and in accordance with ISO 9001 (among other standards), there’s a specific test that some McCrometer customers opt to have performed on their meter. Known as...

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...
