The classification of flow measurement devices used here is based loosely on that used by David W. Spitzer in his remarkable compendium “Flow Measurement” published by The Instrument Society of America in 1991, supplemented with inputs from other resources. Types of Flowmeters: * Differential Pressure, * Magnetic, * Mass, * Oscillatory, * Positive Displacement of Liquids, * Target, * Turbine, * Ultrasonic, * Variable Area (Rotameters etc.), * Sanitary and Other.
