The WATERFLUX 3070 is a new measuring instrument that is an electromagnetic water meter for applications in the water and wastewater industry. Its 15 year battery life makes it ideally suited to applications where no power is available. The device also has the option of a GSM module for remote transmission of measurement data and status information.

The new WATERFLUX 3070 offers the user several unique benefits. Thanks to extremely short inlet and outlet installation requirements, the WATERFLUX can be installed in very narrow wells and chambers. As a magnetic-inductive meter it is highly accurate and stable, while also featuring a lower pressure drop than comparable mechanical water meters. For large diameters, the WATERFLUX 3070 has a significant price advantage compared to the lifetime cost of mechanical meters which often require filters and rectifiers as well as significantly more maintenance and cleaning.

At the heart of the WATERFLUX is the measuring tube with a unique rectangular cross section, which offers several advantages: The coils are arranged so that a strong, uniform magnetic field is formed so the measurement is independent of flow profile. In addition, this allows for extremely short inlets and outlets. The minimal width of the magnetic eddy currents allow for highly accurate measurement (± 0.2% ± 1.5 mm / s). The stable, Rilsan® lined metal tube design is capable of withstanding high pressure. Rilsan® is approved for potable water use.

Electrical energy is needed for the operation of an electromagnetic water meter,. however, in many cases, the remote location of the meter makes connection to the electricity grid impossible. KROHNE overcame this by designing the WATERFLUX 3070 to operate in normal conditions with a 15 year battery life thereby all but eliminating maintenance costs.

The product’s long life cycle is due to its unique sensor design and its very low power components resulting in power consumption which is about 5000 times less than a comparable line powered, conventional electromagnetic flowmeter.

For use at remote water sources or wells or for network data transfer, the Waterflux is available with remote data transmission. A Datalogger and GSM transmitter module is available for the WATERFLUX 3070. The Data Logger stores all data, including peak flow and low flow during the night. This information may be transmitted over a GSM network to a server that the user can access.

The WATERFLUX 3070 can also indicate status or diagnostic conditions, such as battery life or less than full pipe conditions. The WATERFLUX 3070 satisfies the requirements for custody transfer according to OIML R-49 and MI-001.

WATERFLUX sensors are available in sizes from 1inch to 24 inches (DN 25 to DN 600). and for combination with the other KROHNE signal converters, the IFC 100 and IFC 300, enabling the application and benefits of the unique sensor design in those industries where there is line power.
