How to choose the right flow meter for your next water project
So-called flow meters are used to measure the flow in pipes. These meters are designed to measure the amount of liquid flowing through a pipe at any given time.

What causes these situations is often a power outage or simply higher outside temperatures than the barn’s ventilation can handle. The cause of death is suffocation implying lack of oxygen or excessive CO2.
