What Are Flow Meters?
Flow meters measure the volumetric or mass flow rate of a liquid or gas. Yokogawa's range of flow meter instruments include vortex, magnetic, variable area, Coriolis, and differential pressure flow meters.

Yokogawa's vortex flow meters are long-lasting and robust, offering field-proven sensor technology and high reliability to deliver improvements in plant efficiency and reduce OPEX.
Variable area flow meters, or rotameters, are some of the oldest devices used for flow measurement, known for their flexibility across various applications and high reliability.
Simplify flow measurement with streamlined, cost-effective devices.
Yokogawa’s latest generation of ADMAG AXG Series is the most suitable magnetic flowmeter with adhesion level diagnosis and dual-frequency excitation method provides stable flow measurement even under high flow noise in the severe applications like the flow of aluminum slurries.
Avoid flashing issues while loading cryogenic liquids with safe, reliable, and accurate density fluid measurements utilizing Yokogawa’s industry-leading Coriolis flowmeter to eliminate measurement issues and increase the accuracy of inventory.
The Coriolis flow meter has many features such as direct measurement of mass flow and measurement of fluid density, which other flow meters do not support. Therefore, since being introduced for practical use in the late 1970s, its market has rapidly expanded in many industries such as oil, chemicals, and foods.
Vortex flow meters were put into practical use in the 1970's; thus their history is relatively short. They have been mainly used at petrochemical plants because of their two main features, the fact that they do not have any mechanical moving parts and are maintenance-free. Yokogawa started research and development on the vortex flow meter before 1970.
Thanks to a two year upgrade project, Foster's Yatala brewery is now one of the country's most efficient integrated brewing and packaging operations. More than 1,100 measurement and control devices from instrument manufacturer Yokogawa Australia will help keep it that way.
This webinar will explore the fundamentals of flow measurement technologies and how they stack up in different applications.
