ABB Instrumentation Company (formerly the Fischer & Porter Company) manufactures a wide range of Variable-Area (Glass or Metal Tube) flow measurement equipment. These are offered for simple flow indication only or for "rough" (±10%) or accurate (±1%) flow measurement. They are also available with transmitting capabilities.

NOTE: Fluid Process Control Corporation does not handle any other ABB products. For assistance with Magnetic Flowmeters, Mass Flowmeters, Swirl-type Flowmeters, Vortex flowmeters, or any other Fischer & Porter product, please contact ABB directly at (215) 674-6000.

Variable-Area Flowmeter Features:

  • Glass, Metal or Acrylic tubes
  • Flanged or threaded connections
  • Brass, 316SS, Teflon or PVC wetted parts
  • Available as indicators only or with alarms or transmitters functions
  • Flow capacities of 4.6 cc/min to 330 GPM Liquid OR 55 scc/min to 1200 SCFM Gas
  • Sizes from 1/8" to 3"
  • Pressure ranges from 100 to 3600 PSIG
  • Temperature ranges from 32° to 500°F
