Electromagnetic Water Meter Features 15-Year Battery
Krohne introduces the Waterflux 3070, a new measuring instrument that is an electromagnetic water meter for applications in the water and wastewater industry. Its 15-year battery life makes it ideally suited to applications where no power is available. The device also has the option of a GSM module for remote transmission of measurement data and status information.
The new Waterflux 3070 offers the user several unique benefits. Thanks to extremely short inlet and outlet installation requirements, the Waterflux can be installed in very narrow wells and chambers. As a magnetic-inductive meter it is highly accurate and stable, while also featuring a lower pressure drop than comparable mechanical water meters.
At the heart of the Waterflux is the measuring tube with a unique rectangular cross section, which offers several advantages: The coils are arranged so that a strong, uniform magnetic field is formed so the measurement is independent of flow profile. In addition, this allows for extremely short inlets and outlets. The minimal width of the magnetic eddy currents allow for highly accurate measurement (± 0.2% ± 1.5 mm/s). The stable, Rilsan lined metal tube design is capable of withstanding high pressure. Rilsan is approved for potable water use.
