Selecting the proper flow meter will take an operator through a fairly typical vetting process, including consideration of capital expenditure (CAPEX), O&M requirements, effectiveness, and durability.

During a recent discussion with Nick Voss of McCrometer Inc., I challenged him to get specific on the performance aspects of the V-Cone differential pressure (DP) flow meter. For those unfamiliar with the functionality of a cone meter, his answers to the key decision-making parameters — cost, maintenance, and reliability — may provide food for thought as you analyze your options.
