Universal Flow Monitors (UFM) added a virtual flowmeter selection chart to its Web site at www.flowmeters.com. The tool is designed to enable visitors to select the appropriate flowmeter technology for the type of fluid they are measuring.

The chart shows the technology that best serves specific fluid applications and compares various technologies and fluids on the basis of cost, accuracy, installation requirements, output type, on-unit display availability, power requirements, flow switching availability, rangeability, fluid conductivity, and response time.

Technologies on the selection chart include Coriolis mass, magnetic, vortex shedding, variable area, vane, weir, flume, area velocity, ultrasonic, turbine, thermal, target, paddlewheel, and positive displacement. Fluids on the chart include clean, dirty, corrosive, open-channel, cryogenic, and viscous liquids; greases; clean oil; non-Newtonian liquids; abrasive and fibrous slurries; clean and dirty gases; and saturated and superheated steam.

To view the selection chart, click on "Flowmeter Technologies" in the toolbar at the top of the home page, and then scroll down to "Flowmeter Selection by Technology."
