Digital Water Flow Meters

What is a digital water flow meter?

A Digital Water flow meter is a flow meter that can display the water flow rate, and have the output for the flow rate. Like 4-20mA output, HART, RS 485, and so on. Digital Water Flow Meter is also called Electronic Water Flow Meter. Digital Water Flow Meter is widely used in industrial water and household water measurement. Most of the Sino-Inst flow meters are digital water flow meters. Like the electromagnetic flowmeter, Portable ultrasonic flow meter, Turbine flow meter…..

The water flow meter is an instrument specially used to measure the flow of water in pipes. You can get many different types of water flow meters from your facility.

When used in certain applications, each flow meter has its own advantages. For many pipelines and similar systems, the water must be maintained at a specified flow rate to ensure the effective operation of the system.

At low flow rates, the speed of the water may be so low that suspended solids settle to the bottom of the pipe, which will deteriorate the efficiency of the pipe and eventually lead to the accumulation of contaminants, which can cause damage.

Since water flow meters can be used in a wide range of applications, there are many reasons to need these flow meters.

On the one hand, knowing that the fluid is in the right place at the right time is very beneficial to ensure that operating costs and efficiency are maintained.

These meters can also be used to ensure that fluids are kept in motion or to determine if the tank is properly balanced.

Any drop in the flow rate may indicate that the water quality is deteriorating and requires treatment.

In some applications, accurate flow measurement is critical to product quality and the health and safety of the final product. These meters are relatively easy to install in the pipeline, depending on the type of meter you choose.

Water flow meter types

Water flow meters are flow meters that can diaplay the flow rate of industrial water pipe.

A water flow meter measures the amount of water flowing through a pipe. We have several kinds to choose from, depending on the application, maintenance needs, and budget.

Types of water flow meters

Turbine/mechanical flow meter to measure water flow

Turbine flow meters easily become the most common flow meters around, mainly because these flow meters are more affordable than other types.

The mechanical flow meter measures the water flow through the rotation of the turbine, which uses a basic propeller, blade or split flow design. The flow rate of water is equal to the speed of the blades.

If mechanical flow meters are to be used, they may become clogged if the water is dirty or more contaminated than expected.

Therefore, you probably should not use this kind of flowmeter to measure the flow of slurry. Since these flow meters can become clogged, they are more frequently maintained than other flow meters.

Vortex flowmeter measures water flow

The vortex flowmeter is a unique flowmeter that measures the flow of water by using vortex flow.

When the fluid pushes over the obstacle, it will produce a vortex and form a vortex. The flowmeter is equipped with a sensor tab. As long as the vortex flows through the sensor tab, the tab will bend, which will produce a frequency output indicating the flow rate of the water.

If you decide to choose a multivariable vortex flowmeter, it can measure up to five different variables that are useful for your specific application.

These variables include mass flow, temperature, density, flow rate and pressure. These meters are especially suitable for large pipelines.

Ultrasonic flow meter to measure water flow

Ultrasonic flow meters are designed to use ultrasonic technology to measure the speed of water as it passes through the pipeline.

You should understand two basic types of ultrasonic flow meters, including runtime flow meters and clamp-on ultrasonic flow meters.

If you choose a run-time flow meter, send a standard ultrasonic signal downstream before sending another signal upstream. These two signals are then compared to determine the water flow rate. This is mostly a pipeline water flow meter. It is often used for household water.

For clamp-on ultrasonic flowmeters, can be placed outside the pipe and are designed to emit acoustic pulses through the pipe wall in order to receive the measured value. Since they can be installed outside the pipeline, they can be used for almost any application and can be used with larger pipelines.

Electromagnetic flowmeter measures water flow

The electromagnetic flowmeter can measure the speed of water by using a simple magnetic field.

When water passes through a magnetic field, a voltage is generated. In this way, higher flow rates always generate more voltage when sent through the electromagnetic flowmeter. The electronic system connected to this meter will receive the voltage signal and convert it into volume flow.

Remember that the water needs ions to generate voltage, which means that the electromagnetic flowmeter cannot be used with pure water without pollutants.

Sewage Flow Meters

Sewage Flow Meters- Wastewater Flow Meters

Sewage flow meter, also known as a wastewater flow meter. The sewage flow meter measures the flow of various sewages in pipes and open channels. Common sewage flow meters are magnetic flow meters, non-contact ultrasonic flow meters, etc.

Industries like wastewater, river water, industrial gas.

What is wastewater flow?

Sewage flow or wastewater can be a pain to accurately measure. The environment is corrosive and humid. While the flow itself can experience wide swings due to inflow and infiltration. Wastewater is usually carried in non-full open channel pipes.

So, all the flow measurement instruments suitable for Sewage flow are called Sewage flow meters, or wastewater flow meters.

Here you can find a Sewage flow meter to measure the flow of wastewater for your application.

How is wastewater measured?

Magnetic flow meters

The electromagnetic flowmeter is based on Faraday’s law of electromagnetic induction. That is, the measured medium flows perpendicular to the direction of magnetic lines of force. Thus generating an induced electromotive force in a direction perpendicular to the flow of the medium and the lines of magnetic force.

Extended reading: Industrial Magmeters

The induced electromotive force is proportional to the measured medium flow, and the instantaneous flow rate can be obtained by using the flow rate, and the cross-sectional area of ​​the pipe.

The conductivity in water is one of the prerequisites for the electromagnetic flowmeter to work properly.

The sewage contains a large number of impurities and salt and has a certain conductivity.

Therefore, the electromagnetic flowmeter can be used for sewage measurement.

For pure water, it cannot be measured with an electromagnetic flowmeter.

The advantages of the electromagnetic flowmeter are high precision, stable measurement and wide application range.

The electrode and the inner lining can be selected according to the medium, and can also be used for measuring work in a bad medium.

The disadvantage is that it is easily interfered by electromagnetic waves, and the diameter of the pipe is larger.

The more expensive the price, the larger the diameter of the electromagnetic flowmeter is not easy to disassemble, and the maintenance is difficult.

Ultrasonic flowmeter

Ultrasonic Flow Meters

The working principle of the ultrasonic flowmeter (Best Guide to Ultrasonic Level Transmitter) is that, by means of the time difference measurement principle. A pair of ultrasonic probes transmit signals through the intermediate medium to the other side of the tube wall and are received by the other probe. And the other side of the probe also transmits a signal to be the first one.

Extended reading: Ultrasonic Insertion Flow Meter for Lined/Large Pipes

The probe is received. In this process, since the signal delivery time is affected by the medium flow rate, there is a certain time difference.

Based on this, the ultrasonic flowmeter calculates the corresponding flow value by means of the relevant formula.

In general, ultrasonic flow meters can be divided into two types: external clip type and plug-in type.

If the length of the straight pipe before the flowmeter does not meet the installation requirements, a multi-channel ultrasonic flowmeter can be installed.

Compared with the electromagnetic flowmeter, the installation of the ultrasonic flowmeter on the large diameter (especially the large diameter of 1 m or more) has obvious advantages, and the construction is not difficult, the cost is relatively low, and the maintenance is convenient.

The external clip-type ultrasonic flowmeter (Ultrasonic flow measurement) is easy to carry and install.

Open channel flowmeter

Most of the sewage treatment plant sewage discharge methods are natural flow, that is, the flow of sewage in the pipeline or in the pipeline is not full.

A waterway that flows in such a non-full-tube state, that is, a waterway with a free surface, is called an “open channel.”

Even in the so-called “dark channel” waterway, since the liquid flows naturally, it also belongs to the open channel.

For such waterways, conventional pressurized full flow meters cannot be used when measuring flow.

The measured sewage contains various impurities and other organic chemical components.

Although it has been purified before the sewage is discharged, if a flow meter is used in direct contact with the sewage medium, scaling will inevitably occur inside the flowmeter after a long time.

Or the situation of being corroded, thus affecting the smooth progress of the measurement work.

The advantage of the open channel flowmeter is that the measuring range is large, and the flow measurement is not affected by the return of the tributary surface, the sediment in the water, the bubbles, and the water level. And the flow sensor will have resistance to the water flow, the structure is simple, the volume is small. And the installation is Convenience.

It is used in the Pearl River Delta area. The standard channels do not need to be modified, they can be installed directly, and the installation and construction costs are low. Therefore, it is suitable for measuring the discharge of sewage from sewage treatment plants.

Orifice flowmeter

The throttling flowmeter is a metering device, for metering flow that has been used in many previous years. It has the longest history and the most usage.

Nowadays, the common type is the circular orifice type and the tapered inlet plate type.

The working principle is to participate in the one-plate saving part in the fluid pipeline, and the pressure difference transmitter is introduced through the pressure guiding tube to measure the pressure difference between the upstream and the downstream of the saving piece.

According to the measured pressure difference, the instantaneous value of the flow is obtained by accounting.

Because of the inactivity of the water in the pressure guiding tube, in the colder area, the orifice tube of the outdoor equipment in winter is simply frozen (frozen), so that the differential pressure instrument cannot work normally.

When measuring dirty sewage, the orifice plate needs to be cleaned frequently.

If the cleaning is not timely, the measurement accuracy is reduced, and the pressure tube is often blocked by dirt, and the appearance cannot be used.

When the flow rate is measured by the orifice plate method, there are disadvantages such as large pressure loss and large protection amount.

Therefore, by changing the pressure-receiving method, for example, by using the radial pressure method, the influence of the fouling of the orifice plate can be reduced.

Widely used in environmental protection, metallurgy, chemical, pharmaceutical, water supply, food, paper, and other industries.

Ultrasonic open channel flowmeters are used to measure flow in the sewer. In the case of a very small water flow, it can be matched with a triangular weir. Its basic structure is to install a weir groove at the outlet of the pipeline, which can be fixed with expansion screws. Finally, use structural glue to plug the surrounding gaps. Ensure that water does not seep from the place where the weir trough and the outlet pipe are connected.

As for how to install the ultrasonic open channel meteor on the weir trough, it is the same as usual. It’s just that the sewer may require battery power. It also needs to be equipped with a wireless RTU. This is also a way to measure the flow in a water channel when the water flow is very small.

Electromagnetic Flow Meter for Sewage

According to the situation of the wastewater treatment site, there are two general wastewater discharge methods. One is to discharge through pipes, and the other is to discharge through ditches. The two types of flow meters selected are therefore different.

1.Waste water is used for pipeline discharge, and most of them choose electromagnetic flowmeter to measure. Because there are no obstructions in the sensor, there is no fear of debris in the medium.

But need to pay attention to the medium must be full. If the pipe is not full, a pipe must be used to lead a section of the sinking pipe to ensure that the flowmeter is in a full pipe.

Note that the electromagnetic flowmeter cannot be installed at the drain of the pipeline, and the length of the straight pipe must meet the requirements of the flowmeter.

Extended Reading: Guide: Magnetic Flowmeter Installation

2.Wastewater is used for ditch discharge, mostly using ultrasonic open channel flow meters.

A measuring groove is installed at the discharge port, and an ultrasonic probe is installed directly above the groove. In this way, the flow of wastewater flowing through can be measured. This instrument generally uses 24V power supply, output: 4-20MA.

When selecting the electromagnetic flowmeter for waste water, it is necessary to know the temperature of the medium, the pressure of the medium, the flow range of the medium, the composition of the medium, the power supply requirements, and the on-site installation requirements. The key point of the selection is to choose which product to measure well. The second is to consider the convenience of installation, operation and maintenance. Finally, the product price can be considered.

Wastewater/Sewage Flow Meter Calibration

A flow meter’s deviation from the standard can be measured in two ways: with a master meter or by weighing mass flow.

Master meters are calibrated to peak accuracy by specified, accredited laboratories.

These labs are ones that are certified by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Subsequently, this means that flow meters. Which are calibrated to master meter accuracy in such a lab will be backed by NIST certification and traceability.

The second method of flow meter calibration involves weighing the amount of fluid that flows through the meter, during the calibration procedure. This is typically done using a supremely accurate weigh scale, which must also be approved by NIST.

This method is often regarded as the most accurate way to measure the volume of flow.

Flow meters can also be calibrated in the field, also known as “wet” calibration.

However, this method is frequently scrutinized because it lacks the involvement of national standards.

Additionally, field calibrations are usually not an option in most applications. Because challenging an installed flowmeter with a given volume of water is just not practical.

Insertion magnetic flow meter principle

All MAG Meters operate under the same fundamental principle of classical physics (Faraday’s Law of Electromagnetic Induction):

E = CONSTANT x B x D x V

The law states that the magnitude of the voltage (E) induced in a conductive medium, moving through a magnetic field is directly proportional to the strength of the magnetic field (B), the path length between the probes (D), and the velocity of the medium (V).

In principle and implementation, it is possible to fix all parameters except velocity.

Thus a MAG Meter responds only to “velocity” and is extremely insensitive to changes in fluid conditions (density, viscosity, etc.) and application constraints (pressure, temperature, and mechanical vibrations, as well as fluid pulsation).

The operation of a MAG Meter is completely analogous to an electrical generator.

A voltage is induced in a conductor that is moving at right angles through a magnetic field.

The faster the conductor moves, the more voltage is generated.

Extended Reading: Special Magnetic Flowmeter Installation situation

Choice of installation environment

  1. It should be installed at the lower part of the horizontal pipeline and vertically upwards, avoid installing at the highest point of the pipeline and vertically downwards;
  2. It should be installed on the rising part of the pipeline;
  3. Installation in the open discharge pipe should be installed at the lower part of the pipe;
  4. If the pipeline drop exceeds 5m, install an exhaust valve downstream of the sensor;
  5. The control valve and shut-off valve should be installed downstream of the sensor, not upstream of the sensor;
  6. The sensor must not be installed at the inlet and outlet of the pump, it should be installed at the outlet of the pump.
  7. Keep away from equipment with strong fields, such as large motors and large transformers.
  8. There should be no strong vibration in the installation place, and the pipeline should be firmly fixed. The ambient temperature should not change much.
  9. The installation environment should be easy to install and maintain.

Choice of installation location

The installation location must ensure that the pipeline is always filled with the fluid under test.
Choose a place where the fluid flow pulse is small, that is, away from the pump, valves, elbows and other local resistance parts.

When measuring two-phase (solid, liquid or gas, liquid) fluids, choose a place that is not easy to cause phase separation.

Avoid negative pressure at the measurement site.

The diameter or circumference of the side pipe is easy to measure, and the ovality should be small.

Length of straight pipe

The length of the straight pipe section on the upstream side of the sensor installation pipeline should be greater than or equal to 10D, and the downstream side should be no less than 5D (D is the diameter of the pipeline being tested).

The flow control valve should be installed on the pipe under test on the upstream side of the sensor, and the flow control valve should be installed on the downstream side of the sensor. When measuring, usually the flow control valve should be fully open.

Installation method

Vertical installation, when the sensor is inserted into the pipeline, it should be perpendicular to the central axis of the pipeline, and the included angle with the pipe section is less than 50. It is suitable for measuring clean media with small pipeline vibration.

There are two ways to insert the insertion point of the electromagnetic flow sensor. One is to insert at 1/4 of the inner diameter of the pipe. The other is to insert at 1/2 of the inner diameter of the pipe.

Correctly weld the mounting base to the pipe. Clean up welding slag and burrs on the mounting base of the pipe under test.

Turn off the upstream flow control valve or use a low-pressure water supply.

Install the DN50 ball valve on the mounting base. Note that the long cavity of the ball valve faces upwards. Check whether the ball valve can be fully opened and closed. If there is any problem, repair it. Install the compression threaded seat, compression nut and rubber sealing ring on the ball valve. Loosen the positioning screw and the compression nut, and insert the sensor through the ball valve into the pipe under test. Tighten the compression nut and the positioning screw, and at the same time, pay attention to the insertion direction of the sensor direction sign and the fluid flow direction.

Insertion depth

(1) When selecting the electrode to insert to the average flow rate, the average flow rate point is about H=0.25D from the pipe wall (D: pipe inner diameter) according to the pipeline turbulent flow conditions. Press the handle to make the insertion rod enter the pipe H deep. (L2 at this time = original L2-H)

(2) After confirming that the insertion depth is correct, turn the flow direction rod to make its connection parallel to the centerline of the pipeline. At this time, the connection between the two electrodes will be perpendicular to the centerline of the pipeline. That is, the connection between the electrodes is perpendicular to the flow rate.

(3) After adjustment, first tighten the lock nut firmly, and then tighten the three locknuts separately. One of their functions is to ensure that the insertion rod is not pushed out by the pressure in the tube. The other is to ensure that the insertion rod does not vibrate.

(4) During actual on-site installation, the insertion depth is only allowed to be 0.25D, which is a quarter of the diameter of the pipe. The insertion depth is 0.5D, which is the center of the pipe.

(5) Loosen the fastening screws under the junction box. Rotate the junction box to the position you are satisfied with and tighten the nuts.

The Insertion flowmeter is a type of flowmeter divided by structure. It includes various flowmeters with different working principles.

Usually, the flowmeter and the pipeline are flanged. Only when the processing pipeline is cut off is allowed to be disassembled, repaired, and replaced. This has a great impact on the reliable operation of the system. The Insertion flowmeter fundamentally solves this defect. Although the measurement accuracy is slightly lower. But on some large-caliber occasions, Insertion flowmeters have been used to measure the total amount of fluid.

There are many forms of Insertion flowmeters that have been promoted. According to the working principle of Insertion flowmeter detection heads, they can be divided into Insertion turbine, Insertion vortex, Insertion electromagnetic, uniform velocity tube, and thermal flowmeter. The number of measuring points of the Insertion flowmeter can be divided into two categories: point flow type and runoff type.

The accuracy of the magnetic flowmeter has been calibrated by the calibration line when it leaves the factory. However, at the use site, due to environmental conditions, fluid characteristics, and instrument damage such as component damage. It often causes instrument operation failures. Therefore, the electromagnetic flowmeter needs calibration. Ensuring accurate flow meter performance is an inestimable part of business planning and costing.

More Featured Insertion flowmeters

At present, there are many kinds of Insertion flowmeters in use. According to the working principle of the Insertion flowmeter detection head, it can be divided into Insertion turbine, Insertion vortex, Insertion electromagnetic, Insertion ultrasonic, and Insertion target flowmeter.

The correct choice of the flowmeter is of great significance for flow measurement. Choosing different flow meters under the same working conditions will definitely have a considerable difference in the final measurement results.

If the initial selection is improper, it may even lead to the inability to perform quantitative measurements and cause damage to the instrument. Therefore, it is necessary for users to have a correct understanding of how to choose a suitable flow meter. Knowing some basic selection methods will help make mistakes when choosing meters.

In order to ensure the use of the flow meter in the production site process. The choice of flowmeter, in general, must be determined according to the medium that needs to be measured at the production site.

The advantages of the insertion vortex flowmeter are particularly good anti-vibration performance, no zero drift, and high reliability. Through a large number of waveform analyses and frequency spectrum analyses on the vortex flowmeter for a long time, the probe shape, wall thickness, height, probe rod diameter, and matching piezoelectric crystals are designed.

Insertion Vortex Flow Meter

It adopts an advanced numerical control lathe for processing. It ensures the coaxiality and smoothness of processing and other technical parameters and cooperates with special processing. It overcomes the common problem of the influence of the inherent self-oscillation frequency of the vortex flowmeter on the signal.

The insertion vortex flowmeter is mainly used for the flow measurement of large-caliber gas, liquid, and steam medium fluids in industrial pipelines in various industries.

It is characterized by small pressure loss, a large measuring range, and high accuracy. It is almost not affected by fluid density, pressure, temperature, viscosity, and other parameters when measuring volume flow under working conditions.

Insertion ultrasonic flowmeter can be divided into propagation velocity difference method (direct time difference method, time difference method, phase difference method and frequency difference method), beam shift method, Doppler method, and cross-correlation method according to the principle of signal detection. , Spatial filtering method and noise method, etc.

Ultrasonic Insertion Flow Meter

Ultrasonic flowmeters are the same as electromagnetic flowmeters. Because the flow channel of the instrument is not equipped with any obstructions, it is an unobstructed flowmeter. It is a type of flowmeter suitable for solving difficult problems in flow measurement. Especially in large-caliber flow measurement. The advantages.

Insertion ultrasonic flowmeter is mainly used in petroleum, chemical industry, metallurgy, electric power, water supply, and drainage, and other fields.

The structure of the Insertion turbine flowmeter is an explosion-proof design. It can display the total flow, instantaneous flow, and the percentage of flow full scale. The battery adopts a long-term lithium battery. The battery life of a single-function integrator can reach more than 5 years, and the battery life of a multi-function indicator can reach more than 12 months.

Turbine Insertion Flow Meter

Insertion turbine flowmeter can display many flow units, including cubic meters, gallons, liters, standard cubic meters, standard liters, etc. The fixed pressure and temperature parameters can be set to compensate for the gas. For occasions where the pressure and temperature parameters do not change much, the instrument can be used for fixed compensation accumulation.

Insertion turbine flowmeters are mainly used in metering and control systems in the fields of petroleum, chemical industry, metallurgy, scientific research, and so on.

The Insertion target flowmeter is based on the traditional target flowmeter. With the development of new sensors and microelectronics technology, a new type of capacitive force induction flow Insertion target flowmeter has been developed. It has the characteristics that the flowmeter has no movable parts such as an orifice plate and vortex street. At the same time, it has high sensitivity and accuracy comparable to positive displacement flow meters. The measuring range is wide.

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 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.
