FPI-X dual-sensor, electromagnetic flowmeter achieves ±0.5% accuracy under the most severe swirling flows. It features a dual-sensor configuration with multiple electromagnetic coils throughout both sensors to produce a magnetic field across the complete cross-sectional area of the pipe. The sensor body is hermetically sealed and protected by NSF-certified, fusion-bonded epoxy coating.
Proline Promag 200 two-wire magmeters offer the same performance as four-wire devices, lower installed cost and intrinsic safety. Available in line sizes of 1/12 to 8 in., they measure flows of conductive fluids with an accuracy of ±0.5% and repeatability of ±0.2% of range. Output options are two-wire HART or pulse/frequency/switch, and no separate power source is required.
Foxboro 84 Series MNPT vortex flowmeter reduces maintenance costs with no moving parts and a lifetime warranty. MNPT connection, 40:1 turndown, HART communications, patented flexible tuning and accuracy within 1.0% of reading in liquids, gas and steam make them suitable for direct replacement of turbine, magnetic flow and orifice meters.
Fluxus F/G 7407.316 SE ultrasonic liquid and gas clamp-on flowmeters allow precise, bi-directional, dynamic measurement of volume and mass flow rates of any gas and liquid media, including wet gas (up to a liquid volume fraction of 5%) or liquids carrying high solids contents. They’re FM Class I, Div. 2-certified for hazardous areas. Transducers for FM Class I, Div. 1 and 2 are available.
Micro Motion Elite CMFS sensor platform delivers precise measurement in pipelines less than 2 in. (DN50). Nine sensor sizes in three compact footprints deliver ±0.05% liquid flow mass and volume accuracy, ±0.25% gas accuracy and ±0.0002 g/cc density accuracy at rates of 0.04 to 1,980 lb/min (1 kg/h to 54,000 kg/h). Turndown ratios range up to 30:1.
