A Flowmeter is a device used to measure and display flow of a liquid or gas through a pipe.
The most common type used in water and sewerage pumping applications are electric magnetic flowmeters commonly referred to as mag-flowmeters.
Electric Magnetic Flowmeters
An electric flowmeter uses electrical energy to produce a magnetic field which in turn produces a small electrical signal in moving water. This signal is converted to a flow rate and either shown on a screen sent via a 4-20 mA current to telemetry
Flowmeters typically contain the following sub-components.
- Meter Head
- Flow Recorder
