SAIMC: Vaal branch

March 2019 SAIMC

At the February technology evening, Sagadevan Kanniappen, product specialist for petrochemical, chemical, oil and gas at WIKA Instruments, gave an in-depth presentation on flow measurement and how it has evolved over the years. He started with differential pressure (DP)-based measurement and then moved on to the newer methods available today. However, DP-based flow measurement still remains a common flow measurement type found in industry today, due to its versatility, ease of use, low maintenance and favourable cost of ownership.

Chairman Juaandré Heyneke thanks Sagadevan Kanniappen after the presentation.
