A magnetic wastewater flow meter is an electromagnetic flowmeter. A magnetic field is applied to the meter tube which
causes a potential difference depending on the flow of velocity of the right
angle to the magnetic field line. The best part of the magnetic flow meter is
that it doesn’t have any moving parts making it ideal for use in dirty fluids
or wastewater, it can measure wastewater containing solids, or industrial acid
waste water by choosing different liners or electrodes. The flow meters are
best for low maintenance or low-pressure situations. They are the most used
flowmeters because they deliver excellent results. They are used on all
commercial pipe dimensions.
They are high-tech devices that measure the
flow rate of sewage, dirty water or wastewater efficiently. Industries use the
flow meters daily. It produces flow data of waste chemicals, Wastewaters, pharmaceutical,
and beverages. Magnetic flow meters are categorized based on driving systems
which are ultrasonic, mechanical, electromagnetic and pressure.
Mechanical flow meters are the traditional water meters which are still in use. They use wheels or turbines that are inserted into pipes to measure the speed of water and also calculate the amount of water flowing through the section of pipe area they are located. They come in different type with the common types being gear and piston meters. Ultrasonic flow meters have more benefits compared to their mechanical counterparts. They can be used to measure any type of fluids. Since they are not mechanical, they have low maintenance costs. They are also more reliable than mechanical and simpler to operate because they don’t need to be inserted inside a pipe but can be clamped to the outside. Mag meter is a kind of electronic waste water flow meter which has various outputs and communications.
The meter works according to Faraday’s Law of electromagnetic induction to know the process of fluid flow. The magnetic flow meter uses the following Faraday’s law of electromagnetic.
The magnetic flow meter is normally used to measure the flow of liquids in pipes. The liquid measured must be a good conductor of electricity and should be homogeneous. The material of the pipe should also be considered when installing a magnetic flow meter. If you are looking for cheaper ways of measuring liquid flow, such as waste water or sewage, the magnetic flow meter is your best bet.
