Question: What type of flow measurement devices are best for slurries?
Keywords: slurry,slurries,flow,measuring,devices,recommended,recommendations
Answer: Any device that restricts the flow to perform measurements are not recommended for slurries. These devices include orifices and dampeners. These devices can lead to liquid/solid separation and they can lead to excessive erosion. Instead, measuring devices that do not restrict the flow should be used. One example of such a device is the magnetic flowmeter.
