Positive displacement flow meters, sometimes known as PD meters, have been around for more than 100 years. They are commonly used in a wide range of applications, from domestic water measurement to measuring ultra flow rates of chemicals at high subsea pressures.
Litre Meter manufactures custom Pelton wheel turbine flowmeters and rotary-piston positive-displacement flowmeters. The company also distributes thermal-mass gas flowmeters; helical-screw positive-displacement meters; electromagnetic flowmeters; drum-type gas meters; vortex flowmeters; ultrasonic flowmeters; and axial-flow turbine flowmeters. Mass flowmeters, water flowmeters and chemical flowmeters for chemical injection applications are also available.
Fluid measurement and control instruments
Litre Meter, based near Buckingham, UK, was established in 1975 and specialises in the custom design and manufacture of instruments for measuring and controlling fluids.
Rotary meters, gas flowmeters, helical-screw flowmeters, electromagnetic flowmeters and ultrasonic flowmeters
Litre Meter’s portfolio includes flowmeters of all kinds, including rotary meters, gas flowmeters, helical-screw flowmeters, electro-magnetic flowmeters and ultrasonic flowmeters to handle a wide range of viscosities, flow rates and pressures, aggressive liquids and hazardous or adverse environments. Litre Meter has particular expertise in measuring low flow rates and flows at high pressure.
Offshore and subsea flow-measurement flowmeters
The company has particular expertise with offshore and subsea flow-measurement and has supplied flowmeters for these applications throughout the world. The company’s VFF flowmeter was developed specifically for the petrochemical industry for chemical injection and hydraulics measurement.
High-pressure flow measurement to 4,000bar/60,000psi is catered for. All of Litre Meter’s chemically resistant flowmeters are constructed entirely from titanium, PFA, PVDF, PP or PVC.
Positive displacement meters, VFF rotary meters, thermal-mass gas flowmeters and volumetric drum-type gas flowmeters
Flowmeters from Litre Meter are also available for many other industrial applications where the measurement of high or low viscosity fluids or gas is required. As well as Pelton wheel and positive displacement meters for low viscosity applications, Litre Meter also manufactures VFF rotary meters for accurate low-flow measurements. It also distributes thermal-mass gas flowmeters from Sierra Instruments and volumetric drum-type gas flowmeters from Ritter.
Pelton wheel flowmeters
Litre Meter pioneered the development of the Pelton wheel flowmeter, an accurate and versatile technology that has since been used across many industries to measure a variety of low viscosity materials at both low and high flow rates.
The company is also UK distributor for other flowmeter technology, including Euromag electromagnetic flowmeters, Kral helical-screw flowmeters, Sierra thermal flowmeters, Vortex mass-gas flowmeters and Digmesa flowmeters.
Litre Meter holds ISO9001:2000 approval as well as Investors In People approval. It is a member of the Institute of Manufacturing at Cambridge University, the Institute of Measurement and Control, and Milton Keynes’ Chamber of Commerce.
UK flowmeter specialist Litre Meter has presented another award for outstanding sales performance to its US distributor LEWA-Nikkiso America Inc.
More than 40% of companies in processing industries still do not comply with international safety standards, according to a recent survey carried out by flowmeter specialist Litre Meter.
Litre Meter has launched the third in a series of oil and gas industry safety surveys.
A survey undertaken by Litre Meter has found that concerns over risks to personnel and the environment are key drivers for the implementation of international safety standards for instrumentation in the oil and gas industry.
Fluid measurement and control company Litre Meter has introduced a new electronic documentation system which uses a combination of quick response (QR) codes and mobile technology to deliver quick access to flowmeter information on the fly.
