Pioneers of Flow Measurement: Founding the Technologies of Today


Just as there were in previous centuries, there are pioneers of instrumentation alive today who will be remembered for their contributions. As part of its ongoing research studies  Flow Research routinely interviews contemporary pioneers of instrumentation to better understand how they came to their discoveries and how they built their companies.  In the past, we have interviewed the founder(s) of Sierra Instruments, Fluid Components Intíl, Kurz Instruments, and McCrometer.  

Most of these interviews have been published in the Market Barometer, which is part of the Worldflow Monitoring Service.  Our plan is to continue this series, so you can look forward to future interviews in the Market Barometer.  

If you would like to receive any issues of the Market Barometer that contain these interviews, please let us know.  You can also access them as part of Worldflow Online.
