2 inch magnetic flow meter

Magnetic Water Flow Meter is an electromagnetic flowmeter used to measure conductive fluids. Conductive liquids such as drinking water, sewage, wastewater, seawater, ammonia, cement slurry, etc.

Magnetic Water Flowmeters provide highly accurate flow measurements for a wide variety of conductive fluid applications. Magnetic Water Flow Meter is a volumetric flow meter that measures liquids or liquid slurries that have a minimum conductivity of 5 µS/cm. Based on Faraday’s law of electromagnetic induction. Magnetic Water Flow Meter is ideal for wastewater applications or any dirty liquid which is conductive or water-based. It is widely used in water treatment, environmental protection sewage measurement and control, papermaking, and other industrial and agricultural production processes for flow measurement and control.

Compared with other flow meters, the mechanical flowmeter relies on the rotation and displacement of mechanical parts to measure the flow rate. Common mechanical flow meters have the following categories.

In most cases, we will choose an electromagnetic flowmeter to measure the flow rate of water. But if it is pure water and cannot conduct electricity, then an electromagnetic flowmeter cannot be used. You can choose a turbine flowmeter to measure.

Potable water flow meter also called Drinking water. Potable water flow meters are important for Domestic industries. Accurate flow measurement is essential to cost-conscious drinking water and potable water system. From water storage, transmission lines to raw water, water treatment and more.

Reducing costs and improving flow control is on everyone’s mind. Depending on the requirements of your domestic water applicaiton, there are lots of options.

Including: Insertion and inline electromagnetic flowmeters. Insertion Turbine meters with stainless steel wetted parts. Inline and clamp on type ultrasonic flow meters. Differential pressure flow meters offer unbeatable value in cost of installation and ownership. The extraction of drinking water usually starts from wells, reservoirs and large tanks. Large diameter pipes carry the extracted water and transfer them to the local distribution system.

Therefore, Potable water flow meters usually need to be suitable for large diameter pipes, such as 6 inch, 4 inch, 3 inch. Of course, 2inch and 1inch pipe flowmeters are also very common. Sino-Inst’s potable water flow meters offer versatile, accurate flow measurement used in facilities across the globe.

Refrigerant flow meter is used for common liquid and gas refrigerant flow measurement. Sino-Inst…


Mechanical liquid flow meters are a type of positive displacement flow meters, which are the most accurate type of flow meters. It uses a mechanical measuring element to continuously divide the fluid into a single known volume part. The total flow volume is measured according to the number of times that the metering chamber is filled and discharged with the volume part of the fluid successively and repeatedly.
