Difference between Flow Meter and Flow Transmitter | Flow Meter Vs Flow Transmitter

This page compares Flow Meter vs Flow Transmitter and mentions difference between Flow Meter and Flow Transmitter.

Flow Meter

Definition:
The device used for measurement of flow rate or quantity of gas/liquid moving in a pipe is called flow meter.

In other words it is an instrument used to monitor, to measure and to record the rate of flow, pressure or discharge of liquids/gases.

Examples of FLow meters:
• Differential Pressure Flow Meters (Orifice plate, Venturi meter, flow nozzle, Rotameter)
• Positive Displacement Flow Meters (Piston Flow Meter, Gear Flow meter, Helical Flow meter)
• Open Channel Flow Meters (Flumes, Weir, Sluice Gate)
• Electromagnetic Flow Meter

Flow Transmitter

Definition:
The flow meter with internal electronic circuits used to provide electrical output in current (4 to 20 mA) or voltage (1 to 5V) is known as flow transmitter.
