Specialty flow measurement manufacturer Hawk Measurement LLC acquired Fluidic Flowmeters’ flow measurement product line, a move that will allow the company to participate in the $18 billion global process measurement market, Hawk Measurement said. 

Fluidic Flowmeters serves the sub segment for direct measurement of volumetric flow of liquids. The company's products are particularly suited for hard-to-measure liquids that have characteristics such as non-conductive, high viscosity, cryogenic and are corrosive.

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, meaning 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.
