FLOWMETERS; FLOW MEASUREMENT; METERING. Expert has devoted the majority of his career to the field of flow measurement. While this work has touched on metering products for several market areas (including gas meters, multiphase flow meters, and open channel flowmeters), the bulk of his experience has been in water metering, liquid metering, industrial fluid metering, irrigation metering, and petroleum-based fuel metering.

In a special subcategory of utility metering (water, gas, and electric), he has experience in the mechanical aspects of both semi-automated utility meter reading systems and fully automated systems called automatic meter reading. These systems involve hand held data collection computers as well as mainframe computers connected to utility meter communication systems (either telephone, CATV, radio, or powerline) to read utility meters without conventional manual meter readers.
