Advantage: Provides wide linear range. 2) Ability to measure reverses flow. 3) Gives rapid response to flow changes. 4) No obstruction is created to flow. 5) It can handle corrosive as well as slurry materials. 6) It has very low pressure drop. 7) Available in large size and capacity
Applications: 1) They are used where applications involving measurement of erosive/corrosive slurries. 2) They are employed in measuring paper stock or pulp, as well as low flow rates and pipe networks with relatively short inside diameters. 3) It is useful for electrically conducting fluid.
