Hawk Measurement Acquires Fluidic Flowmeters

March 18, 2011
Company brings in oscillatory flowmeter product line

Hawk Measurement announced the purchase of Fluidic Flowmeters LLC, a manufacturer of specialty flow measurement products for industrial process control systems.

Hawk Measurement’s acquisition of Fluidic Flowmeters’ flow measurement product line will allow the company to participate in the $18 billion global process measurement market. Fluidic Flowmeters serves the sub-segment for direct measurement of volumetric flow of liquids. It is particularly effective with hard-to-measure liquids that have characteristics such as non-conductive, high viscosity, cryogenic and corrosiveness.

Fluidic Flowmeters’ products are classified as oscillatory flowmeters, which utilize specially designed geometric shapes to create an environment where self-induced sustained oscillations will occur. Oscillatory flowmeters are inherently digital devices; that is, the basic unconditioned output signal is a frequency. In a properly executed flowmeter, the frequency of oscillation is accurately proportional to volumetric flow rate. There are several categories of oscillatory flowmeters, each with unique geometry and application characteristics.

The Fluidic Flowmeters’ product line will be covered under Hawk Measurement's 24-month warranty on all applications, based on the expertise of their application engineers.
