The OPTIFLUX 1100 is a cost-effective electromagnetic flowmeter (EMF) with a lightweight wafer-style design. The meter is an economical solution for general applications with conductive liquids (≥5 μS/cm) and lowers solid content (up to 10%). Unlike the basic device OPTIFLUX 1050, the OPTIFLUX 1100 offers better accuracy. It is suitable for use in various industries – from water, wastewater, and mobile applications to machine building (OEM), agriculture, and utilities to firefighting.

The OPTIFLUX 1100 features a reinforced PFA liner and Hastelloy® electrodes that guarantee excellent chemical resistance and a large temperature range (up to +120°C / +248°F). The EMF has no internal moving parts, does not require maintenance and is insensitive to vibrations. A full on-site verification of the OPTIFLUX 1100 without process interruption can be carried out using the OPTICHECK service tool.
