4. Flow Research will soon publish a new worldwide magnetic flowmeter study. Within the next few weeks, Flow Research will ship a brand new study: The Global Market for Magnetic Flowmeters, Third Edition. This study was previously published in 2001 and 2003.  This study includes all the segmentation in previous studies, and adds some important new segments: line sizes, liner type, applications, and accuracy.  All the indications are that the magnetic flowmeter market grew significantly in the past two years. For complete details on this exciting new study, go to http://www.flowresearch.com/Magnetic_2005/overview.htm.

5. In addition to our study on magnetic flowmeters, we are also working on a new study on vortex flowmeters. This study was previously published in 2001 and 2003. This edition of the study includes the segmentation in earlier studies, and also introduces new segmentation. A lot of important developments have occurred in the vortex flowmeter market in the past several years. This study takes these developments into account, and provides a completely updated look at the worldwide vortex flowmeter market. For more details on this exciting new study, go to http://www.flowresearch.com/Vortex_2005/welcome.htm.

6. Flow Research will soon publish a new worldwide study on DP flowmeters and primary elements. In the past, many analysts have identified the size of the DP flowmeter market with the size of the market for DP transmitters used to measure flow. This study attempts to arrive at a more accurate view of the size of the DP flowmeter market by including primary elements and associated instrumentation. Primary elements include orifice plates, Venturis, Pitot tubes, flow nozzles, and other types. For complete details on this study, visit http://www.flowresearch.com/DP_2005/welcome.htm.

7. Aalborg acquires vortex flowmeter line from Venture Measurement. Aalborg has purchased the vortex flowmeter line from Venture Measurement of Spartansburg, South Caroline. The deal was completed in February 2005. Venture Measurement acquired its vortex flowmeter line in 1998 from Nice Instruments, and sold it under the Aaliant name. Aalborg is known as a supplier of mass flow controllers and variable area meters, and is located in Orangeburg, New York. For more information on this acquisition, go to Aalborg Acquisition.

8. J-Tec sells its industrial vortex flowmeter line to Racine Federated.  J-Tec Associates of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, has sold its line of industrial vortex flowmeters to Racine Federated. The sale was announced on April 21, 2005. J-Tec has both insertion and inline vortex meters for liquid, steam, and gas applications. The company is continuing to sell its vortex flowmeters to the automotive engine testing and military markets. Racine Federated is based in Racine, Wisconsin. The company produces variable area, turbine, ultrasonic, and insertion magnetic flowmeters, along with primary elements. For more details, visit Racine_Acquisition.

9. Flow Research is beginning research on two new temperature studies. Flow Research is starting research on two new temperature studies: The Market for Temperature Sensors in the Americas, Second Edition, and The Market for Temperature Transmitters in the Americas, Second Edition. These studies were first published in 2000. It has been several years since these markets have been studied. The temperature sensor study includes thermocouples, RTDs, thermistors, infrared thermometers, and fiber optic sensors. We are also planning to conduct an end-user survey. Research is expected to begin in the next several weeks. For more details on these exciting new studies, visit www.tempflows.com
