One of the key challenges water utilities face today is where to install electromagnetic flow meters when there is inadequate upstream and downstream piping available. Frequently it becomes a tradeoff of lower accuracy versus a manufacturer’s recommend upstream and downstream piping requirements.
This technology application paper examines how Reduced bore Electromagnetic flowmeters are ideal for these applications with zero upstream or downstream piping as they better handle distorted velocity flow profiles arising from the pipe networks. They offer:
- higher turn down ratios compared to a full-bore electromagnetic flow meter
- the same measuring accuracies and repeatability
