Flow Measurement Technology for Electric Vehicles

Electrification and hybrids are coming to all areas of transportation.  Consider that in the last few years the range includes: personal passenger vehicles such as cars, light trucks motorcycles and rideshare vehicles; Class 4-8 commercial trucks; public transportation vehicles including buses, trains, ferries and trolleys; even to hybrid construction and mining equipment including backhoes, skidsteers, dozers, shovels and wheeled loaders.

It seems that no moveable equipment is exempt from moving away from internal combustion. Flow Technology is providing flow meters to meet these demanding applications based on our expertise in the Automotive and Aerospace markets.  With almost 60 years experience behind us, we have the right products with high accuracy to meet the challenge.

Flow Technology is involved in all aspects of thermal management of these systems, including HVAC; cooling systems for power electronics, electric motors and drives as well as batteries.  We also supply meters for the hydraulic systems on larger vehicles.  Whether it is for on-vehicle use, the dyno lab or component R&D, we have the right flow measurement technology for you.
