Battery-Operated Mag Meter Offers 'Go-Anywhere' Design'
Badger Meter has released two new electromagnetic-flow metering solutions to its line of M-Series mag meters. The M-5000 and M-2000 mag meters expand the company’s mag meter portfolio. The battery-operated M-5000 mag meter offers a "go-anywhere" design. Suitable for a wide range of utility and industrial applications, the M-5000 can handle remote settings and other applications without access to power. It can be used to measure well water, wastewater, reclaimed water, and bi-directional flow applications that have minimal electrical conductivity.
As a battery-driven solution, the M-5000 allows for the flexibility to install a reliable water meter nearly anywhere. The flow detector has no parts in the flow stream, thus preventing pressure loss and keeping maintenance to a minimum The M-5000 can achieve an accuracy of ±0.5% and a flow range better than 300:1.
The second addition to the Badger Meter M-Series is the M-2000. The M-2000 delivers precise flow measurement for a variety of purposes, including potable meter lines, in fluids with suspended solids, and most applications requiring exacting measurement. The M-2000 is built without any moving parts to impede the flow stream. It can achieve an accuracy of ±0.25%.
The M-2000 is a general-purpose detection mag meter built for field verification testing with the use of a simple, handheld device. The ability to verify mag meters in the field eliminates the need for remote testing and increases the frequency of testing to maintain functionality and accuracy. The wide selection of liner and electrode materials helps to ensure maximum compatibility and minimum maintenance over a long operating period.
