    Angry failure of flow meters, meter banks and / or other devices

    In the event of an inaccuracy with the devices used to measure the quantity received at the discharge port (failure of flow meters, meter banks and / or other devices) then manual shore tank measurement shall be applied.

    How would you translate meter banks into Spanish, could you say los bancos medidores?

    I don't know what they are, I've just translated the words!

    I've translated flow meters as los caudalÝmetros, is that correct?

    Hola La Inglesa:

    Flow meter or flowmeter can be caudalÝmetro, flujˇmetro, medidor de flujo, etc.

    I think the term meter banks refers to: hileras de medidores, filas de medidores, lÝneas de medidores, etc. I know banks is synonym for rows, lines, etc. but if you translate it like bancos medidores, it might be a little bit confusing.

    I hope someone else gives us his/her opinion.

    I think a not-so-literal but more idiomatic translation would be "tablero de medidores."

    I googled it, this is what it looks like:

    Any thoughts?

    I agree with flor1990. "Tablero de medidores" gives the Spanish reader the "image" or meaning you want to convey.
    Very good, flor1990!
