Niagara Meters is able to measure flow of liquids, steam and gases. This is done through the use of strain gauge technology which has been typically used in weight gauging systems such as these. Niagara Meters began using this technology in flow measurement applications, which allows them to measure the force produced by the liquid or gas flow against the target in the flow stream. A transmitter converts the forced detected by the strain gauge to a 4-20mA output that is proportional to the flow rate.
Niagara Meters has been widely used in the following industries since 1859: agriculture, food, beverage, tobacco, mining, oil & gas production, paper, petrochemical processing, plastics & rubber, pharmaceutical, and power generation. Niagara Meter's products include Nutating Disc, Oscillating Piston and Turbine technologies for use in industrial flow measurement applications. With over 150 years of experience, Niagara Meters produce high quality and highly robust flow meters based on a number of technologies that are suitable for large variety of industries and flow measurement applications.
