Understanding How Ultrasonic Flow Meters Work Ultrasonic Flow Meters are a non-invasive flow technology that uses sensors/transducers to generate ultrasonic sound waves that are directed into the flow and used to determine flow velocities. On-board flow computers use the given velocity and the current flow profile of the pipe to determine an instantaneous rate of …

Capacitance Manometers for Use in Lyophilization Processes Lyophilization, also known as cryodesiccation, or more commonly “freeze-drying” is a dehydration process typically used to preserve a perishable material or make the material more convenient for transport. The freeze-drying process works by exposing a material that has been frozen to a vacuum environment. This lowers the vapor …
