I am in process of selecting a flow-meter for particular applications where the viscosity of the fluids range from 300 cP to 500 cP. which is the best suitable flow meter which can provide reliable measurement in such cases. Kindly provide details of typical accuracy that can be achieved with the suggested flowmeter.
Continuing to the above query, i would like to know the most economical solution for the above application.
Wedge flowmeter is preffered for high viscosity fluids!!!!
I agree with anon.. and this is the best choice and can work with reynolds as low as 200.
Coriolis mass flowmeter generally has a good flow range and can work with tough services like high viscosity fluids. Though this solution is costlier compared to wedge or orifice for larger sizes this is more reliable in critical services.
