A3.3 - Novel Sensor Geometry for Liquids Serving in Dispersion Thermal Flow Meters

A. Badarlis, A. Kalfas, V. Kumar & A. Pfau
Dispersion thermal flow meters in industrial application in liquids are not common and can not operate in high flow velocities. The main problem which prohibits the use of thermal flow meters in high flows is the fact that the the characteristic curve of the flow meter becomes less sensitive in high flow rates. In addition, the ratio of measurement signal to the noise decreases and the electronics are not capable to detect small changes of...
