A flow parallel wire (FPW) with a center tap is used in a sensor for measuring the time of flow. A heater is placed upstream of the sensor. The upstream and downstream parts of the FPW are combined to a half bridge resulting in a large output peak when a heat pulse passes the FPW. The time between generating the heat pulse and recording the peak maximum is insensitive to the properties of the fluid. © 2011 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
