Early detection of leaks can preserve pumping station capacity. Full-profile insertion (FPI) mag meters can be installed near valves and bends, making them ideal for pumping stations.
Explore why the Ultra Mag is a fan favorite in numerous industries such as municipal water, power generation, oil and gas, and HVAC, amongst others.
Discover how water transfer is a challenging application in the oil and gas industry that demands durability and accurate flow measurement.
McCrometer, Inc., a globally recognized flow meter manufacturer, recently announced NSF-61 and NSF-372 certification for the McPropeller flow meter.
McCrometer, and channel partner Tecnova, were able to help meet the demands of this water distribution customer by identifying and supplying the necessary meter to satisfy their specific needs.
The passing of the Infrastructure Investment & Jobs Act is a game-changer for the water industry, said Tim Door, vertical marketing manager, municipal water at McCrometer.
The FPI Mag®, McCrometer’s versatile, one-of-a-kind electromagnetic (mag) flow meter has satisfied metering project goals in the water and wastewater industry for years. While it has undergone minor changes and improvements to the overall design, such as the addition of bi-directional flow reading, the biggest improvements to the FPI Mag’s capabilities come from the evolution of the electronics.
The key to McCrometer’s low lead times is no “secret sauce.” It’s ultimately a combination of 3 factors that contribute to the delivery of necessary flow measurement devices – despite the current supply chain predicament.
In May of 2021, the Senate passed the Drinking Water and Wastewater Infrastructure Act of 2021 (DWWI Act). They have allocated $250 million of grant money, broken down into $50 million segments each year starting in 2022 and ending in 2026. Due to this bipartisan legislation, small public water systems should consider taking advantage of this unique funding opportunity. Keep reading to see if you may qualify.
Here are several ways that even smaller utilities can implement affordable technologies to improve visibility into what’s happening in key areas of their systems.
Whether decision-makers consider it ultimately attainable or not, there is something positive to be said about striving toward ‘net zero leakage’ in water distribution systems saddled with high non-revenue-water (NRW) losses. The key is taking affordable steps — like those described below — toward identifying and mitigating the most egregious water loss locations in a distribution system, based on readily accessible data.
Sometimes, a meter installation isn’t as straightforward as we’d like it to be. Many flow monitoring projects can start out simple and evolve to be very complex, especially when the meter is meant to solve a challenging measurement issue. To prevent potentially time-consuming and frustrating delays and issues, McCrometer offers a startup service. So, what does this service include, and should you book this service for your next meter project?
Electromagnetic (mag) meters are a desirable metering choice for their incredible accuracy and low to no maintenance required over its lifespan. Operating with no moving parts, the appeal is high – however, the ability to troubleshoot in-field is challenging and time-consuming. Luckily, there’s a major contributing factor in installing an effective mag meter that can set you (and your operations) up for success: grounding.
Oftentimes in municipal flow applications utilities and districts opt for a propeller meter, an electromagnetic (mag) meter, or another type of “no moving parts” meter like an ultrasonic device. However, there are instances in which a differential pressure (DP) meter is a more attractive option, and specifically the VM V-Cone, McCrometer’s DP meter designed for a wide variety of municipal flow applications.
McCrometer is a global leader in providing flow measurement solutions including differential pressure (DP), electromagnetic, and propeller technologies. McCrometer’s flow measurement solutions are found in thousands of installations worldwide including Municipal/Industrial Water & Waste, Agriculture and Turf Irrigation, Institutional Facilities applications and many more. Its products and systems meet many of the world’s most demanding safety and quality standards.
Industries & Applications
Municipal/Industrial Water & Waste
McCrometer offers the industry’s preferred liquid flow measurement solution for both clean and waste water applications. The VM V-Cone® System is a perfect fit for water and wastewater treatment applications, with built-in flow conditioning for high accuracy and a rugged no moving parts technology that operates over a wide turndown range.
Agriculture & Turf Irrigation
Flow measurement plays a vital role in agriculture and turf irrigation. McCrometer's 50 years of industry experience resulted in the best-selling irrigation flow meter in the US, the Mc® Propeller meter. Mc Propeller meters play a vital role by helping farmers conserve water resources and optimize irrigation for improved crop yields and soil conservation.
Institutional facilities users require flow meter solutions that maintain accuracy in steam and chilled water applications to meet today’s increasingly tight government regulations. McCrometer’s V-Cone® advanced differential pressure flow meter is exceptionally precise in both steam and chilled water systems.
The Ultra Mag® Flow Meter is a precision electromagnetic instrument designed specifically to meet the liquid flow needs of the municipal water and wastewater industry. With innovative features, such as a state-of-the-art microprocessor-based signal converter, it delivers exceptional reliability, durability and ±0.5% accuracy. The flow meter’s unique NSF-approved UltraLiner™ provides superior electrical insulation as well as excellent protection against corrosion and abrasion.
The Water Specialties Propeller Meters™ are designed and manufactured with precise techniques and high quality components. They offer superior performance, low maintenance and unsurpassed durability. Meter materials and flow ranges for low velocity construction meet or exceed AWWA standard C704/92.
The patented V-Cone® Flow Meter solves challenging fluid applications, and operates in some of the harshest environments. This advanced differential pressure-type (DP) flow meter offers high accuracy and repeatability, flexible installation, and little to no maintenance for the widest range of fluids.
The FPI Mag™ (Full Profile Insertion) Electromagnetic Flow Meter is the only hot tap full profile insertion flow meter available on the market. The FPI Mag installs without service interruption making it ideal for retrofits, upgrades and maintenance projects and sites never before metered. The hot tap installation significantly reduces installation time eliminating the need to de-water lines or cut pipe.
Unlike traditional propeller meters, the Mc Propeller uses a flexible drive-train and sealed ball bearings. Its unique design makes it easy to service in the field and requires no external power or batteries. The Mc Propeller is designed to comply with AWWA standard No. C704/08. Standard features include an instantaneous flow rate indicator and six-digit totalizer.
The FS100 Flow Straightener provides breakthrough flow straightening technology that virtually eliminates the upstream / downstream straight pipe runs typically required in existing or new flow meter applications. Requiring only 1.5 straight pipe diameters upstream and 0-0.5 downstream, the FS100 Flow Straightener when installed with the McPropeller slashes typical installation piping and labor costs by more than 50 percent, which makes it the right fit in both retrofit and brand new installations.
