Are you choosing the correct flow meter?

Most buildings require some aspect of water flow and, often, BTU measurement. Several different flow sensor techniques can be used depending on need. These include water type, application, accuracy, required measurement, installation challenges, and cost effectiveness. Below is a table to help you determine which technique, product, and installation is most relevant for your project.

Kele offers a variety of products (shown below) from suppliers Badger Meter and Data Industrial that meet all aspects of these flow requirements.

Data Industrial products are designed for flow control and reporting and meet the highest standards in the industry. While a higher accuracy requirement often brings a higher price, Badger Meter flow products offer a robust mix of high-accuracy meters ideally priced for the competitive HVAC application bid environment.
