Welcome to Sparling Instruments

Our History

Sparling Instruments was founded in 1919 by Ray W. Sparling and began manufacturing propeller meters to measure water for irrigation, water distribution facilities and waste water plants.

For almost 100 years Sparling Instruments has introduced numerous products and systems focused on the measurement of water, chemicals and other liquids for municipal, industrial, and agricultural applications.

Sparling continues to manufacture its popular main line propeller meters, TigermagEP™ magnetic flow meters to measure water, chemicals, and slurries.
