Badger Meter releases new electromagnetic flowmeter
US company Badger Meter has introduced a new electromagnetic flowmeter for industrial applications.
The M1000 is the latest addition to company's high-performance ModMAG M-Series and combines a general purpose detector with an amplifier in what the company calls 'the next generation of electromagnetic flowmeter signal processing'.'
The flowmeter achieves an accuracy rate of + 0.3% and features a rugged design to ensure reliability in demanding environments. The meter features a non-intrusive open flow tube that virtually eliminates pressure loss, and with no moving parts to impede the flow stream, maintenance is kept to a minimum.
A selection of liner and electrode materials provides maximum fluid compatibility and minimum maintenance over a long operating period.
Brooke Lange, product specialist, Badger Meter, says 'The M1000 electromagnetic flow meter was specifically developed for industrial water/wastewater, machinery plants, commercial vehicles and batching process applications. Its measuring pipes are lined with material approved for use with drinking water per the NSF-61 standards. Plus, rugged construction and resistance to vibration make the meter ideal for truck-mounted operation for process fluid in the hydraulic fracturing industry.'
The M1000 is available in ¼ - 8" sizes and has a flow range of 0.03 - 12 m/s. The meter is best suited for bi-directional flow measurements of fluid > 5 µS/cm (> 20 µS/cm for de-mineralized water). The amplifier includes an LCD display and is housed in a weather-resistant, NEMA 4X (IP66) enclosure, which can be integrally mounted to the detector, or if necessary, mounted remotely for an optional NEMA 6P (IP67) enclosure. The available power supply is 92...275V AC (9...36V DC).
Badger Meter has broadened the M1000 communication connection protocols to include Modbus RTU, RS232, RS422 and RS485 options. In addition, the meter offers a Data Logging feature kit for advanced analytics.
