Elektromagnetic flow meters

Elektromagnetic flow meters with „W“ flow tube – wafer design

The W (wafer) flowtube meters are designed to be installed between flanges. The flowtubes are installed between two connecting flanges and tightened with bolts. They come in inner diameters from DN10 to DN150 while they have shorter installation lengths than the F (flanged) flowtubes with the same diameters.

These flowtubes are only made with Teflon liner, and with a choice from several sensing electrode materials (316L stainless steel, Hastalloy C, titanium, …).

The flowtube contact faces have spigots that align with recesses in the connecting flanges. This arrangement ensures precise flowtube centering within the pipe thus eliminating any potential metering errors from flowtube improper installation. It is therefore useful to order the flow meters with our original installation sets that contain flanges with appropriate recesses. These flanges are also fitted with connecting terminals for earthing conductors. Installation sets may also be custom specified with respect to installation length and type of connection (DIN 11851 threading for food industry, DIN 32676 clamp, etc.)

Earthing rings are also available on request. This guarantees flawless flow meter operation at all times even for installations in plastic pipework.

All materials to be in contact with the medium under measurement are certified for permanent contact with drinking water (edibles) and hot utility water.

Our flow meters are thus convenient for all kinds of food processing applications to measure flow of drinking water, wine and related products, milk, whey, beer, and other food consumables. Besides other, they resist cleaning lyes or acids that are used in such applications on a daily basis. They furthermore meet specific requirement in most chemical facilities.
