Variable Area Flow Meters provide 2% accuracy.

Press Release Summary:




Employing optimized calibration process with integrated laser engraving system, Lake VA Meters provide precise scale locations and increments directly tied to calibration points on each individual meter. Calibration and scaling process not only streamlines production process, but also improves meter accuracy to 2% of full scale over full flow range. Process is implemented across all VA meter styles, including Basic, High Temp, Pneumatic, and Case Drain meters.

AW-Lake Announces Next Generation Variable Area Flow Meters



Franksville, Wisconsin — AW-LAKE COMPANY is pleased to announce the release of their “Next Generation” Variable Area flow meters with improved accuracy. This new generation of the Lake VA meters employs an improved calibration process with an integrated laser engraving system, providing precise scale locations and increments directly tied to calibration points on each individual meter.



Designed with improvement in mind, the new calibration & scaling process not only streamlines the production process, it also improves meter accuracy to 2% of full scale over the full flow range. This was accomplished by integrating the calibration process with the meters’ custom scale application.



This new process is being implemented across all VA meter styles, including Lake’s Basic, High Temp, Pneumatic, and Case Drain meters, as well as Alarms, Transmitters and Hydraulic Test Analyzers.



“By relying on more automation, we are able to eliminate potential errors and variability introduced by technicians controlling the calibration and scaling process, producing a more repeatable, reliable and accurate flow meter,” stated Chris Husson, Sr. Design Engineer. “We are able to treat these meters as more precise instruments because we uniquely calibrate each individual meter and no longer apply general scales like our competition.”



LAKE Monitors is a brand of AW-Lake Company, focused on Variable Area and Paddle Wheel flow measurement technology.
