In almost all industrial processing plants, liquids or gases are used in operations. ifm's product range of flow sensors offer different measuring principles, materials, and displays to meet the requirements of many different needs across industries. Commonly, manufacturing facilities rely on flow sensors to monitor varied types of media, from water, oils, and coolants, to gases, compressed air, and aggressive media. Electronic flow sensors can prevent damage or downtime caused by flow interruptions, and have a longer lifecycle than traditional mechanical parts that have critical failure points. Their application areas range from simple monitoring tasks to precise flow rate measurements. Use the Select By Application tool to narrow your search for a flow sensor based on media type, and read more about the underlying measuring principles and technology.
