  • Flow rate of hydraulic fluid is an important parameter that can be measured to understand hydraulic systems
  • High pressure flow meters are expensive - around $500 - [1]
  • Measuring at the return line is an easier way to achieve accurate measurement - at 1/10 the cost - such as this $35 meter for up to 30 gpm - [2]
  • Either impeller or magnetohydrodynamic
