BATCHFLUX 5500 Electromagnetic Flowmeter

Source: KROHNE, Inc.

The BATCHFLUX 5500 is an electromagnetic flowmeter (EMF) for rotary or linear filling machines. It is the most accurate mag meter for filling applications with conductive liquids in the market and has established itself as the standard for volumetric filling units. Due to its unique ceramic measuring tube, the mag meter features the best repeatability and long-term stability. It can also be used in difficult applications like fibrous products, hot filling (up to +140°C / +284°F) and CIP/SIP processes.

The BATCHFLUX 5500 is the smallest electromagnetic flowmeter for filling applications in the market with the lowest weight and the lowest power consumption. Filling machine manufacturers benefit from easy and compact integration. The flowmeter is also the only device with gap-free, fused-in-place cermet electrodes to meet maximum hygienic requirements. It is 3A certified and conforms with FDA and EC1935/2004 regulations. For cleaning of outside, the meter is IP69k rated as standard. The EMF is provided as flangeless wafer style version with integrated electronics and frequency output.
