entered the flowmeter business when it acquired NuFlo Technologies in May
Measurement Systems was established in 2003 as the result of the
acquisition of three companies:
began as a wholly owned venture of SCF Partners of Houston, Texas, a
private equity firm with a focus on investing in companies in the oilfield
service sector. NuFlo’s initial product portfolio included the primary
products of each merged entity including: chart recorders and differential
pressure switches and indicators, turbines, totalizers and positive
displacement meters, samples, relief valves, and flow computers.
August 2004, NuFlo expanded by acquiring North Star Flow Products and a
small Specialty Products division of Barber Engineering and Controls Ltd.
of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Products
acquired included orifice fittings and meter runs, specialty parts, and
orifice plates. North Star
and Specialty Products were transitioned to the NuFlo brand name in the
US, while in Canada the North Star brand name is being retained.
NuFlo markets a differential
pressure based Cone Flowmeter that is competitive with McCrometer’s
V-Cone flowmeter. This
product was launched in 2006. Like
McCrometer’s V-Cone meter, it is designed to measure flow in tight
spaces where upstream pipe flow is limited.
In January 2007, the entire
NuFlo organization, including the Caldon operation, was renamed Cameron.
Also in 2007, Cameron moved its Caldon operations to a new 65,000
square foot Ultrasonics Technology Center just outside of Pittsburgh,
