The article offers a comparison between magnetic flowmeter and sonar flowmeter. It draws the comparison on the basis of the magnetic flowmeter technology and the sonar meter technology as applied to a large diameter hydrocyclone feed line application. The conclusion indicates that the sonar meter provides superior performance with a lower total cost of ownership.
