Magnetic Water Flow Meter Applications

KLD electromagnetic water flowmeter can be used to measure the volume flow of conductive fluid in a closed pipeline. It is widely applied in the flow measurement and control in the fields of chemical and petroleum industry, metallurgy industry, water and wastewater, agriculture and irrigation, paper making, food and beverage industry and pharmaceutical industry.

The premise of using Magnetic Water Flow Meter is that the measured liquid must be conductive. The conductivity of the liquid cannot be lower than the threshold, the lower limit. If the conductivity is lower than the threshold, it will cause measurement error until it can not be used.

It can be measured even if the value exceeds the threshold, and the indication error does not change much. The threshold value of general electromagnetic flowmeter is between 10-4~(5×10-6)S/cm, depending on the model. It also depends on the length of the flow signal line between the sensor and the converter and its distributed capacitance. The product manual usually stipulates the signal line length corresponding to the conductivity.

Magnetic Water Flow Meter to Measure Waste Water

The sewage treatment process is mainly through biological oxidation, flocculation, precipitation and other processes to achieve the purpose of sewage purification. At each stage, a certain gauge is needed to measure.

In the sewage industry, according to the characteristics of the corrosiveness, abrasiveness, temperature and condensation of the tested substance and the price tolerance. Different lining and electrode materials should be selected.

In the sewage treatment process, it is necessary to configure corresponding detection instruments according to the process requirements to form a reliable control system.

Generally, sewage treatment plants are equipped with flow meters in the following process inspection procedures:

  1. Water inlet pipe.
  2. Detection of mud volume from primary settling tank to mud storage tank.
  3. Detection of surplus and sludge flow in the sludge pump room.
  4. Detection of the return sludge flow in the sludge pump room.
  5. Detection of the effluent flow of the secondary settling tank distribution well.
  6. Detection of the sludge intake of the digestion tank.
  7. Digestion tank Mud output detection. 8. Flocculation tank reagent input detection, etc.

Magnetic Water Flow Meter to Measure Industrial Water

The conductivity of industrial water and its aqueous solution is greater than 10-4S/cm. The conductivity of acid, alkali and salt solution is between 10-4~10-1S/cm, so there is no problem in use. Low distilled water is 10-5S/cm and there is no problem.

The electromagnetic flowmeter cannot measure liquids with very low conductivity. Such as petroleum products and organic solvents. Cannot measure gas, steam and liquids containing more and larger bubbles.

It is found from the data that some pure liquids or aqueous solutions have low conductivity and are considered unusable. However, in actual work, we will encounter examples that can be used because of impurities. Such impurities are beneficial to increase conductivity.

For aqueous solutions, the conductivity in the data is measured in the laboratory with pure water ratio. The actual aqueous solution may be proportioned with industrial water. The conductivity will be higher than found, which is also conducive to flow measurement.
