The Ultra Mag electromagnetic flow meter (or "magmeter") sets itself apart from the start, with a stainless steel body, steel flanges, and a consistent 3M fusion-bonded epoxy liner, inside and out, to eliminate wear, abrasions, and corrosion.
While accurate flow measurement is critical for most industries, flow conditions that change over time can make it difficult to properly size a flow meter. Replacing a meter as the flow changes is impractical and expensive. In addition, flow disturbers can greatly impact meter accuracy, so addressing that issue is important as well. A uniquely designed flow meter may be the solution to both problems.
Flow meter accuracy is critical for process control but can be hampered by upstream and downstream flow disturbers. This problem may be addressed during the design process, though in some circumstances it’s impossible to eliminate disturbers.
Water and wastewater utilities rely on accurate flow measurement for important process controls. These may include recycle streams, chemical dosing systems, and other operational functions. In addition, regulators require utilities to measure certain flows, such as treatment plant influent and effluent and potable water pumping. Accurate flow measurement is also important for monitoring and reducing unaccounted-for water.
Accurately measuring flow is critical for water utility operations. Also, regulatory agencies mandate flow monitoring and require annual calibration of meters. But even a meter in perfect condition and properly calibrated can read inaccurately. Flow disturbances are a common cause of accuracy and repeatability errors.
McCrometer’s FPI Mag® meter is now NSF/ANSI-61 and NSF/ANSI-372 certified for municipal drinking water applications. In the U.S. and around the globe, municipalities and other water authorities have confidence knowing this instrument meets or exceeds the highest standards in water measurement from source to tap.
