The Signet 2551 Magmeter is an insertion style magnetic flow sensor that features no moving parts. The sensor design is available in corrosion-resistant materials to provide long-term reliability with minimal maintenance costs.
In this installment of Ask The Experts, noted process control authority and CONTROL Columnist Béla Lipták and his cadre of automation experts answer a readers question regarding control valves for slurry services.
ControlGlobal.com contributor David W. Spitzer provides a look from a process automation perspective at how magmeters and Venturi meters are vying with ultrasonics for clean and dirty water applications.
Handling slurries (a mix of solids and liquids), should be based on experience and experiments, not theory. Much of the knowledge obtained from pneumatic conveyors and fluidization systems can be used in understanding slurries.
