Flow Meter Turndown Ratio

When specifying a flow meter, accuracy is a necessary requirement, but it is also essential to select a flow meter with sufficient range for the application.
‘Turndown’ or ‘turndown ratio’, ‘effective range’ or ‘rangeability’ are all terms used to describe the range of flow rates over which the flow meter will work within the accuracy and repeatability of the tolerances
