CRANSTON, RI, May 12, 2015 -- Primary Flow Signal (PFS), a designer and manufacturer of durable and accurate flow-metering solutions, recently announced that it has provided a wide range of Venturi meters with varying materials and designs for use in sea and river water desalination and reverse osmosis (RO) processes.

For the past 33 years, PFS has delivered Venturi meter solutions to facilities around the world to aid in the desalination and RO process. By carefully analyzing operating conditions such as temperature and pressure ranges, the company is able to provide recommendations on the best design material to be used for each set of unique conditions.

The PFS-modified, short-form Venturi meter (model HVT) has a 25-year warranty and lasts 100 years or more with appropriate material selection. They are ideally suited for applications that require +/-0.25% accuracy, have short to no upstream straight pipe and that can be easily field verified.

"It's critical to examine the environment where the meter will be used before determining the best design material." said Bruce Briggs, PFS president. "For example, fiberglass is a very effective, long-life-expectancy material as long as it is not subject to excessive sunlight exposure, while Monel provides maximum long-term performance under a wide variety of application conditions, including full sunlight exposure and sodium concentration."
