torque flowmeter

1. n. [Production Logging]
A device for measuring in situ the velocity of fluid flow in a production or injection well based on the torque, or force, produced by the fluid on a stationary impeller. This torque can be related to the effective velocity of flow across the impeller. The torque flowmeter is sometimes used as an alternative to the spinner flowmeter.
