Safety is a concern within any sort of system containing potential energy, whether electrical, chemical, gravitational, or fluid. Each of these has special methods of protection, and for the fluid systems, certain safety valves are used in situations when excess pressure can be a problem.

For many manufacturing processes, it is extremely important to measure the exact rate at which fluid is moving or flowing. We turn to flow gauges to provide these measurements, and there is a great diversity in operating principle as well as proper application to the fluid that is being measured.

A common difference of terms arises when referring to air or pneumatic pressure, and those are gauge (BarG) pressure and absolute (BarA) pressure. Both can accurately describe a system, but when performing calculations and tests, it’s important to distinguish the difference.
