Global Intelligent Flow Meters Market to Reach US$2.6 Billion by the Year 2026 
An intelligent or smart flow meter is an electronic instrument that is used to measure the volume of a liquid that flows through a pipe. An intelligent flow meter uses ultrasound and other methods to calculate the quantity of flow. Flow control has an important role to play in industries, dealing with water, steam, and gas as it helps in the management of several control parameters. An intelligent flow meter measures the quantity of gas, liquid, or steam streaming through or in the vicinity of a flow meter sensor. It measures the speed of the flow, using ultrasound and other methods, and calculates the volume of the liquid or gas that has moved through the tubes. Progress, in industries such as beverage, food, power generation, chemical, pharmaceuticals, paper, wastewater, water, gas, and oil, depends on controlling the flow of the product accurately. Precise measurement of the outflow helps control unwanted leakages. Intelligent flow meters measure and manage the flow by altering the size of the flow passage and are extremely useful in the gas and oil industries.

Flow metering is required to attain the maximum efficiency in an autonomous production process. Additionally, the method is also extensively utilized in the scientific investigations. The existing flowmeter devices are primarily based on hydrodynamic methods; different physical characteristics such as optical, acoustic, electromagnetic, and thermal; and constantly moving bodies such as power and tachometric. Hydrodynamic methods are mainly constituted by vortex, streamline flow, variable level, and variable pressure differential method. Flowmeter devices that are based on hydrodynamic methods, such as differential pressure flowmeters, have witnessed extensive adoption. The operation of these flowmeters depends on differential pressure across the device that alters the flow section of the pipe line. A primary transformer, a differential pressure gauge, and connecting pipes are the major components present in the differential pressure flowmeters.
