Why measure the mass flow rate? That is the question I address in this new video by Sage Metering. Sage is the manufacturer of thermal mass flow meters, and in this video, I explain that many processes need to measure the mass flow rate rather than the volumetric flow rate.
An instrument to Measure Mass Flow Rate
Thermal mass flow meters determine true mass flow without measuring pressure and temperature commonly used with orifice plates. In fact, a popular new application for thermal mass flow meters is replacing orifice plates. The advantages of thermal mass meters include ease of maintenance and ease of obtaining the signal. Additionally, there are significant savings associated with not having to drop energy across an orifice plate to measure mass flow.
