In wrapping up our series on natural gas flow meters, there is one last meter-type worthy of mention, the rotameter. The rotameter is a traditional gas technology and may be used as an industrial flow meter to measure the volumetric flow rate of fluids in a closed tube. It is a variable area meter and provides a simple, precise, and inexpensive indication of flow rates.
