US flow meter manufacturer McCrometer has extended its FPI-X Mag meter range with a new offering to deliver measurement in extreme flow conditions.
The FPI-X Dual Sensor Eletromagnetic Flow Meter is designed for use in close proximity to cascading or multiple pump arrays and reliably achieves ±0.5% accuracy under the most severe swirling flows, the manufacturer claims.
McCrometer says its product provides measurement in difficult sites that would otherwise need multiple meters, avoiding the need for flow conditioner and piping modifications.
The FPI-X flow meter features a field-proven dual sensor configuration designed with multiple electromagnetic coils installed throughout both sensors to produce a magnetic field across the complete cross sectional area of the pipe.
Placing voltage sensors in two planes across the pipe compensates for differences in velocity caused by severe flow disturbances.
More velocity sensors results in a more accurate measurement.
