New meter features forward and reverse flow measurement
Visitors to the American Water Works Assn.’s ACE11 are invited to stop at booth 1911 to learn more about the newest version of McCrometer’s FPI Mag flowmeter, now offering forward and reverse flow measurement.
The new Model 394L FPI Mag flowmeter provides bi-directional measurement, which is important in many municipal water treatment, distribution and storage applications. The most common applications include storage tanks, water selling or sharing, multiple water sources and ring main distribution systems.
In addition to locations where water is known to flow in both directions, the new Model 394L FPI Mag flowmeter can help users with complex, problematic piping configurations, according to the company. Valuable flow data can now be gathered where measurement was previously cost prohibitive, such as areas affected by multiple expansions and retrofits or locations where two or more pipes converge and are consolidated into a single line.
The new flowmeter comes standard with an L-Series converter that is calibrated to provide precise real-time indication of flow and the totalized flow volume in both forward and reverse directions. It also features sensing electrodes for increased sensitivity, and is packaged in a heavy-duty 316 stainless steel sensor body for maximum structural integrity. The sensor is coated with an NSF-certified 3M fusion-bonded epoxy coating for operational longevity.
The FPI Mag flowmeter is available for line sizes from 4 to 138 in.
