Question: Under what circumstances are vortex flowmeters the most accurate?
Keywords: vortex,flowmeters,flow,meters,accurate,accuracy
Answer: The accuracy of vortex flowmeters can be within 1% so long as they're being operating within their recommended flow range, have a steady stream, and you have 10 pipe diameters of straight pipe behind the in front of the flowmeters. Outside of these parameters, these flowmeters are not accurate.
