Unique flowmeter for tough sludge
The Ultra Mag Flowmeter from McCrometer combines superior flow measurement accuracy in liquids, slurries and sludge with low maintenance and long-life. The advanced Ultra Mag is an electromagnetic flowmeter which is field-proven to meet the specific needs of users in the water and process control industries.
The Ultra Mag measures flow with a non-intrusive sensing element, which means debris and solids will not clog the line or cause excessive wear. Combined with the superior abrasion and corrosion resistance of UltraLiner, this magmeter is a superior choice for installation in hard-to-reach areas and applications requiring minimal maintenance in tough environments.
Ultra Mag is accurate to +0.5% of flow rate, with a repeatability of +0.05%, over a wide flow range from 0.2 to 49 FPS. It is designed for line sizes from 50-1210mm and it is compatible with temperatures from -10 to +77ºC at pressures up to 300 psi. Its non-intrusive flow-sensing element also eliminates head loss.
To sense flow, the Ultra Mag relies on two compact, high-density magnetic coils placed within the pipe outer wall to generate an electromagnetic field inside the pipe. As conductive liquid flows through the pipe, a voltage is created, which is measured by electrodes inserted through the flowmeter liner into the flow stream. The voltage is then converted to a flow rate reading by the Ultra Mag's signal converter, which includes a digital read-out.
The highest possible flow measurement accuracy is provided by the Ultra Mag's highly intelligent micro-processor based signal converter. Advanced electronic components within the signal converter produce an exceptionally high signal-to-noise ratio for high measurement accuracy even in slurries or sludge under variable flow conditions.
Magmeters provide worry-free flow measurement in situations where reliability and low maintenance are critical. Unlike mechanical flowmeters, there are no moving parts to clog or break--making them low maintenance devices.
Electromagnetic measurement gives magmeters a wide rangeability--up to 245:1 and allows for bi-directional flow readings. As the voltage generated is related only to the speed of the fluid, measurement is unaffected by changes in fluid density and viscosity--making for a very stable and reliable flowmeter.
