Many processes include gas flow measurement and control. Gas flow meters are standard in laboratories, machinery, industry, hazardous areas, and various markets, including the analytical market, the chemical industry, renewable energy, the semiconductor industry, the food and beverage industry, and surface treatment.
Applications for Aeration
Aeration is when air, oxygen, carbon dioxide, or other gases circulate, mix, or dissolve in a liquid or substance.
Aeration applications are typical in food and beverage markets, wastewater treatment, fish tanks, and fish farms. Controlling oxygen levels in beer brewing and winemaking, for example, allows fermentation. Milk, sparkling water, and other carbonated beverages, such as cola require a throughflow of gases to remove odors or add CO2. Industrial gas flow control, similar to air pumps in a fish aquarium, is used to aerate ponds to grow fish or algae.
