Published on

Flow Indicators are used to observe the flow of liquid, powder or gas through pipelines. In many applications the process media require visual inspection at some point in the piping system, sight flow indicators are used in line. Chemical engineers and engineers in pharmaceutical processing plants use a sight flow indicator and this presentation offers information about materials and options to consider when selecting a visual flow indicator. http://www.ljstar.com/products/products.aspx?pl=5
