ro·tam·e·ter

(rō-tam'ĕ-tĕr),
A device for measuring the flow of gas or liquid; the fluid flowing up through a slightly tapered tube elevates a ball or other weight that partially obstructs the flow, until the wider cross-section allows that flow to pass around the floating obstruction.
[L. rota, wheel, + G. metron, measure]

rotameter

(rōt′ă-mēt″ĕr, rō-tam′ĕt-)
A device that measures the flow of a gas or liquid by rotating as the fluid passes the fins or blades of the device.

Once tank volume is determined, accuracy of the rotameter readings can usually be relied upon over the full range of applied loads since the added load-applied via a restrictive or throttling device (in this example, a simple inline valve, or "Variable Restriction")-will act to further damp out flow pulsation.
Another important aspect of test set-up that can be seen in the schematic is that the rotameter is the last element in the flow path.
That means no further manual adjustment of rotameters is necessary.
McMillan's Models 104 and 107 Liquid Flo-Sensors precisely measure the flow rates of liquids as low as 13 mL/minute, and are designed as an electronic alternative to ball-and-tube rotameters. Stainless steel construction guarantees compatibility with virtually any chemical, including many solvents and organic compounds.
Brooks Instrument has added a low flow rate option for its Model MT3809 armored rotameters. The meter is now capable of accurately measuring flow rates as low as 5 L/h of air and 0.08 L/h of water.
