Aquaflux is the optimum solution for water and wastewater applications. Electromagnetic water meters have many advantages over mechanical meters like outstanding long-term stability, maximum process reliability, no maintenance to name a few. Also electromagnetic water meters offer state-of-the-art communication features enabling data transmission and storing facility. Every meter that leaves our factory is wet-calibrated on our calibration rigs (ISO/IEC 17025 standards). The payback period on investment for electromagnetic flowmeters compared to other types of meters is few months.

Construction
The measuring tube of the sensor has a smooth, cylindrical shape. This design, consisting of a circular cross section (no moving parts) and a homogeneous magnetic field, forms the basis for a flow-optimized pipe cross section, thereby providing reliable measurements that are largely independent of the flow profile. This design allows the sensor to measure the flow bi-directional. As an additional benefit, there is no possibility for product to build up and the free cross section sized to the customer pipeline creates no pressure drop. In addition, the required straight inlet and outlet runs are only 5D and 2D. The liner of the measuring tube is made of Hard Rubber / Polyurethane / Neoprene and is resistant to vacuum, aging and abrasion. The surface and shape of the measuring tube also minimize mineral deposits, resulting in exemplary measurement quality even over the long term.

Measuring Principle Faradays law


An electrically conductive fluid flows inside an electrically insulated pipe through a magnetic field. This magnetic field is generated by a current, flowing through a pair of field coils. Inside of the fluid, a voltage U is generated: U = V * K* B * D Where V = Mean flow velocity K = Meter constant / correction factor for geometry B = Magnetic field strength D = Inner diameter of flowmeter The signal voltage U is picked up by electrodes and is directly proportional to the mean flow velocity V and thus the flow rate Q. The generated signal voltage is very low. Signal converter is used to amplify this signal voltage, filter it (separate from noise) and convert it into signals for totalising, recording and output processing.

Suggestions for installation


Highest point of pipe run (Air bubbles collect in measuring tube, faulty measurements!) Preferred locations

Downpipe "zero" flow, velocity, pipe drained, faulty measurements! Horizontal pipe run Install in slightly ascending pipe section

Open feed or discharge Install in low section of pipe

Downpipe over m 16 ft length Install air valve in downstream of flowmeter

open discharge

Long pipeline Always install shut-off valves downstream of flowmeter

Never install flowmeter on pump suction side

Grounding rings
The instrument must be grounded for proper functioning as well as to provide safety against electric shocks. Such a grounding system is lacking in the pipes with internal lining / coating or plastic pipes. In such cases, grounding rings must be fitted on both sides of the primary head. Grounding rings also function as liner protectors and available below types in various material of construction. 1. Grounding ring type 1 2. Grounding ring type 2: Prevents damage to liner during transportation and installation 3. Grounding ring type 3: With cylindrical neck, prevents damage to liner when handling abrasive media
