Universal Flow Monitors, Inc was incorporated in 1963. The business started out making variable area flow switches for the automotive market. They were used largely for lubrication flow, cooling water and paint and this remains true today.
Over the years, Universal has added flow indication and flow transmitters to the basic design platform. We have also added the Insite® and FlowStream® product lines. Insite® is a plastic see through flow indicator used for water , de-ionized water and dilute chemicals used in waste water treatment. The FlowStream® product uses a different technology to measure the mass flow of clean gasses where fast response and survivability are key.
The products are characterized by a simple and robust design backed up by high customer service and dedication to quality.

Flow indicators that are also flow switches which give a signal when flow is too low or too high. Typical applications include fuel flow, lubrication and cooling water.
Flow switches from Universal have the following features:
Flow rate indication along with alarm for trouble shooting.
Simple and reliable mechanical flow indication with high amperage limit switches.
Materials of construction that match the application.
Reliability based on years of experience.
These vortex shedding flowmeters are designed for coolant or water flow from ¼ to 4 inch pipe sizes. Optionally, ¾ to 4 inch sizes have temperature transmitters. In ¼ and ½ inch sizes, 316 Stainless Steel bodies and Kalrez seals make it suitable for low viscosity corrosive fluids.
FLOWSTREAM MASS FLOWMETER FOR GAS
Good for measuring non-aggressive gases such is air, nitrogen, argon, helium, and hydrogen.
Common applications are blanketing gas, shielding gas, purge gas and leak detection.
Digital indication with either a voltage or a current transmitter.
