FLUXUS ADM 5107 Water Flowmeter

The FLUXUS ADM 5107 is FLEXIM's solution for many flow metering applications found in the water and wastewater sector and adjacent industries. As FLEXIMs basic and economic alternative, the ADM 5107 offers the same benefits in terms of accuracy and reliability as its bigger brothers, the FLUXUS ADM 7407 and ADM 8027.

The FLUXUS ADM 5107 offers a precise bi-directional flow measurement over a wide turndown ratio and not only at high, but especially at  low flow velocities due to its matched and paired transducer pairs, offering a superior zero stability, and the superior measurement algorithms embedded in the flow computer. With its water-tight IP67 transducers and a permanent coupling due, it is also thought for outside use at drinking water pipelines or similar applications and is virtually maintenance free. Especially here, at pipe diameters up to 2500 mm, it is a better and much more cost effective alternative to other measurement technologies, such as MIDs.

As of its high repeatability, the FLUXUS ADM 5107 also offers the possibility for leak detection when placing multiple measurement systems at one pipeline. Especially at night, when temperatures are more even and only low flow velocities are common in drinking water lines, leakages can clearly be identified and such reading transferred to a process control system.

The ideal retrofit solution for water pipes

As a non-intrusive clamp on flow meter, the FLUXUS ADM 5107 is the ideal solution for retrofitting in existing networks without interruption of supply lines. Thanks to the clamp-on technology, no cutting or welding work is needed to mount the transducers on the pipe. During installation, the flow meter's user interface is automatically adapted to the connected transducers and no zeroing is necessary. Water is already pre-selected as medium and it's physical properties are stored in the flowmeter's memory.

In most cases only the pipe's outer diameter and wall thickness as well as the water temperature has to be entered in order to start the measurement. The commissioning work is thus reduced to a minimum. On request, the instrument can even be pre-configured at the factory.

FLEXIM also offers flow meter solutions for complete pipeline balancing, where the flow meter can be buried underground. IP68 transducers and VARIOFIX mounting fixtures guarantee a long lifetime even under such difficult conditions. The measurement system of choice for such applications is the FLUXUS ADM7407.
