This paper presents the results of 12 V-Cone DP Flow meters tested over a period of 17 years. Service applications for the V-Cones included natural gas as well as coke oven gas measurement, a dirty aggressive fluid that is problematic over long period of time for most flow meters. All testing was conducted in air by a 3rd party calibration laboratory, CEESI Colorado. Results will be presented for each of the meters over the 17 year span. Conclusions and recommendations will be made to the long term performance and recalibration intervals for the V-Cone flow meter.
Colleges and universities are working harder than ever to account for their resources, but getting a handle on steam production can be tricky. A growing number of schools are banking on one solution for better insight.
Failure to capture meter readings at the low end of the production scale is a missed opportunity for steam system operators. Here’s why that is happening and what you can do to attack the problem.
McCrometer’s FPI Mag® meter is now NSF/ANSI-61 and NSF/ANSI-372 certified for municipal drinking water applications. In the U.S. and around the globe, municipalities and other water authorities have confidence knowing this instrument meets or exceeds the highest standards in water measurement from source to tap.
Designed for ease of irrigation flow measurement, the new Dura Mag flow meter from McCrometer provides precise, reliable flow data for water management.
Water loss is a constant concern for drinking water utilities. After all of the hard (and expensive) work it takes to get a purified product out of the plant, losing it to leaks and aging infrastructure before it reaches ratepayers can be problematic.
In an era when water scarcity, water quality and delivery costs are becoming urgent problems worldwide, the flow meter is more important than ever as a water management tool. “You can’t manage what you don’t measure,” is a simple business truism, which summarizes the growing role of flow meters in many water process applications.
The city staff of Buckhannon, West Virginia, recently ran into a situation that didn’t add up. A flow meter at one of the city’s booster stations was indicating a flow rate higher than the capacity of the station’s pumps. The staff contacted the applications team at McCrometer about its flow meter accuracy problem.
Municipal and Industrial water and wastewater treatment systems present a challenging environment in which the accurate and reliable measurement of liquid flow is essential for cost-effective plant operation.
Visitors to the 2015 World Ag Expo will want to stop by Booths 2415-16 in Pavilion B to experience the McCrometer CONNECT TrendView App, which conveniently connects growers and irrigators to their crops anytime/anywhere to help bust the drought and much more.
If your flow meter is costing you time and money ... and that all adds up to real operational headaches, then you might want to hear what four McCrometer customers who installed the FPI Mag Flow Meter have to say about this problem-solving flow instrument.

McCrometer’s flow measurement solutions are found in thousands of installations worldwide including Municipal/Industrial Water & Waste, Agriculture and Turf Irrigation, Institutional Facilities applications and many more. Its products and systems meet many of the world’s most demanding safety and quality standards.
Industries & Applications
Municipal/Industrial Water & Waste
McCrometer offers the industry’s preferred liquid flow measurement solution for both clean and waste water applications. The VM V-Cone® System is a perfect fit for water and wastewater treatment applications, with built-in flow conditioning for high accuracy and a rugged no moving parts technology that operates over a wide turndown range.
Agriculture & Turf Irrigation
Flow measurement plays a vital role in agriculture and turf irrigation. McCrometer's 50 years of industry experience resulted in the best-selling irrigation flow meter in the US, the Mc® Propeller meter. Mc Propeller meters play a vital role by helping farmers conserve water resources and optimize irrigation for improved crop yields and soil conservation.
Institutional facilities users require flow meter solutions that maintain accuracy in steam and chilled water applications to meet today’s increasingly tight government regulations. McCrometer’s V-Cone® advanced differential pressure flow meter is exceptionally precise in both steam and chilled water systems.
The Ultra Mag® Flow Meter is a precision electromagnetic instrument designed specifically to meet the liquid flow needs of the municipal water and wastewater industry. With innovative features, such as a state-of-the-art microprocessor-based signal converter, it delivers exceptional reliability, durability and ±0.5% accuracy. The flow meter’s unique NSF-approved UltraLiner™ provides superior electrical insulation as well as excellent protection against corrosion and abrasion.
The Water Specialties Propeller Meters™ are designed and manufactured with precise techniques and high quality components. They offer superior performance, low maintenance and unsurpassed durability. Meter materials and flow ranges for low velocity construction meet or exceed AWWA standard C704/92.
The patented V-Cone® Flow Meter solves challenging fluid applications, and operates in some of the harshest environments. This advanced differential pressure-type (DP) flow meter offers high accuracy and repeatability, flexible installation, and little to no maintenance for the widest range of fluids.
The FPI Mag™ (Full Profile Insertion) Electromagnetic Flow Meter is the only hot tap full profile insertion flow meter available on the market. The FPI Mag installs without service interruption making it ideal for retrofits, upgrades and maintenance projects and sites never before metered. The hot tap installation significantly reduces installation time eliminating the need to de-water lines or cut pipe.
Unlike traditional propeller meters, the Mc Propeller uses a flexible drive-train and sealed ball bearings. Its unique design makes it easy to service in the field and requires no external power or batteries. The Mc Propeller is designed to comply with AWWA standard No. C704/08. Standard features include an instantaneous flow rate indicator and six-digit totalizer.
The FS100 Flow Straightener provides breakthrough flow straightening technology that virtually eliminates the upstream / downstream straight pipe runs typically required in existing or new flow meter applications. Requiring only 1.5 straight pipe diameters upstream and 0-0.5 downstream, the FS100 Flow Straightener when installed with the McPropeller slashes typical installation piping and labor costs by more than 50 percent, which makes it the right fit in both retrofit and brand new installations.
