Electromagnetic flow meters (or mag meters) are becoming increasingly popular in the industrial and municipal sectors due to their accuracy, reliability, and low maintenance needs. McCrometer’s range of electromagnetic flow meters offers these benefits and more, making them an excellent choice for measuring and monitoring the flow of conductive liquids.
McCrometer’s mag meters are designed with an obstruction-free design, eliminating flow impediment and operating with electrodes that are positioned on opposite sides of the flow. This allows for better signal readings and improved accuracy over a wide range of flows. In fact, accuracy of these meters can be near an average of +/- 0.5% or better.
The technology behind McCrometer’s mag meters is Faraday’s Law of Electromagnetic Induction. This principle states that conductors moving through magnetic fields produce electric signals in conductors that are proportional to the water moving through the field’s velocity. The electricity created by the movement of the conductive liquid is then used to measure the velocity of the water flow in the pipe.
McCrometer offers a variety of output options for their mag meters, including 4-20mA, Pulse, Modbus, Hart, and smart outputs such as Sensus, Itron 6, iTron 9, and Neptune compatibility. Additionally, they also offer flanged spooling for insertion mag meters in sizes ranging from 4 inches to 36 inches. For larger sizes, McCrometer will review with their engineering and manufacturing team to get you the correct size.
The meters also have a fusion-bonded epoxy, which creates a barrier between the meter and fluid, eliminating delamination risk and eliminating the need for conventional liners. This helps to keep the meter in optimal condition and help reduce the need for maintenance and replacements.
For accurate and reliable flow monitoring, McCrometer’s electromagnetic flow meters are a great choice. With their obstruction-free design, variety of output options, and fusion-bonded epoxy, you can be sure you’re getting the best possible performance from your meter.
