P&ID Flow Meters Symbols and Their Usage

> P&ID Symbols > P&ID Flow Meters Symbols and Their Usage
Posted by Janice | 04/22/2020
Pre-drawn flow meter symbols represent analog output flow sensor, cyclonic flow meter, flow element, flow totalizer, flow tube, temperature, smart magnetic, etc. Vector symbols help develop accurate and presentation-quality diagrams.

From the P&ID flow meter symbols library, you will gain a great range of high quality flow meter symbols. These symbols are great resources when you need to document piping and instrumentation diagram. Here you will have a general overview of the symbols on how they look like and how to use them in diagrams.

Flow Meters Symbols

The following picture shows a screenshot of the flow meter symbol library. It has a comprehensive collection of flow meter shapes which are vivid and accurate. You will find analog output flow sensor, cyclonic flow meter, flow element, flow totalizer, magnetic flow meter, simple flow rate, simple flowmeter, smart coriolis mass, pressure, flow tube, flowmeter, temperature, smart magnetic, and more.

Flow Meter Symbols

P&ID Design Guide

Flowmeter is a device used to measure the flow rate or quantity of a gas or liquid in a pipe.

Flow Meter

Cyclonic Flow Meter is a meter designed to measure the flow rate of a fluid (or gas) within a cylindrical chamber without a differential pressure directly across the rotating member, and without the use of any bearing.

Cyclonic Flow Meter

Magnetic Flow Meter is applied to the metering tube, which results in a potential difference proportional to the flow velocity perpendicular to the flux lines.

Magnetic Flow Meter

Flow Totalizer displays the flow rate from a flow meter as well as the accumulated total volume of the flow.

Flow Totalizer

How to Use Flow Meters Symbols

This set of symbols are included in Industrial Automation category of the symbol library. When you start a Process P&ID drawing template, the symbol library will open automatically. You can drag a required shape from the library and drop onto the canvas.

The shapes you've got are vector graphics, which are highly customizable.

Size Scalable

You are allowed to scale the shape to any size without loss of the display resolution. There is no blur image anymore.

Flow Meter Change Size

Color Changeable

You are able to freely change filling colors to suit your own theme.

Tips: If you want to change the filling color for a part of a shape, first you need to select the sub shape. Click on the sub shape you want to change color for a few times until you successfully select it (there will be a blue selection frame), then you can change this sub shape with a new color, and with other parts unchanged.

Flow Meter Change Color

Shape Separable

You are able to pull out the drawing components to create new symbols. To do this, first you need to click Ungroup button to ungroup the shape under Home menu.

How to Edit P&ID Symbols

To help you better understand piping and instrumentation diagram symbols, you can go to PID examples and PFD examples pages to learn from a wide range of examples.

Using P&ID Flow Meters Symbols to Design P&ID

Below are some samples illustrating the usage and application of P&ID power symbols. Edraw pre-defined P&ID symbols provides a fast and easy way to design piping and instrumentation diagrams. To discover more examples, you can visit P&ID examples and PFD examples.
