Volumetric flow, temperature measurement and flow velocity – three of the most important variables which help to ensure efficient process control. Here is news of a sensor that measures all three at once
BAUMER has announced its latest range of electromagnetic flow meters, the PF55S and PF75H/S, designed for industrial applications with high flow velocities of up to 10 m/s. The company’s PF75H/S is said to be capable of measuring media with a conductivity of 5 µS/cm and is available in a either hygienic or industrial version. BAUMER says that thanks to the design of its new electromagnetic flow sensors, precision combined with long-term stable and reliable measurement is assured with an accuracy of up to 0.2%. The combination of precise measurement of volumetric flow and flow velocity means that tasks such as volume balancing, mixing and dosage processes can be optimised and controlled very accurately.
The result is a reduction in the use of valuable resources such as liquid foods, chemicals, or fresh water says BAUMER, helping to save energy, generate less waste and reduce costs. The flow meters feature coreless air coils which the company says generates a stable, temperature-independent magnetic field. This, combined with a continuous, free-flowing measurement tube without constrictions or other fittings, contributes to more efficient process control, preventing pressure loss in the system and helping to optimise pump performance.
The BAUMER CombiSeries display provides all the key information needed at a single glance, even from a distance. This helps users to monitor increasingly complex process data and measured values, including the indication of alarm limits and also enables adjustments via the touch display says the company.
Advantages such as uniform operation and process monitoring across the entire CombiSeries sensor range, including temperature, pressure, conductivity and flow measurement are cited. The new electromagnetic flow meters are available with all standard process connections for both hygienic and industrial applications. Customised options are also available, such as temperature and vacuum-resistant linings, to suit more demanding media as well as a large range of pipe diameters from DN3 to DN250.
