Magnetic-Inductive Flowmeter Offers Simple Operation

An electrically conductive media flowing through an orientated magnetic field, in accordance to Faraday's law of induction, will induce a voltage proportional to the mean flow velocity rate and hence the volumetric flow. The PITe magnetic inductive flowmeter sensor is placed in a pipeline and when a conductive liquid flows by the magnetic field coil and two electrodes, the electrode voltage is detected by a transmitter and converted into a standardized signal such as a 4-20 mA or a pulse output. The PITe sensor can be used in conjunction with the UMF2 transmitter. It offers a simple compact design, is maintenance-free, and has almost no pressure drop. It is used to measure the volumetric flow of liquids, slurries and other electrically conductive media. Pressure, temperature, density and viscosity do not affect the measurement. However, it is not suitable for use with media that has solid particles or small gas bubbles. For complete details and specs, checkout the PITe datasheet.
