We are currently having a philosophical discussion regarding how to connect the flow meter symbol to the FE and FIT circles. I think they should both be connected to the symbol and my colleague thinks the FE should be connected to the symbol and the FIT connected to the FE. ISA shows an orifice plate with the FE and FIT connected to the symbol. My colleague feels that it is shown that way only for a orifice plate... other types of flow meters should be shown as he describes.
Any thoughts on which is correct? Are there any standards out there for this that we can refer to?
