How does the Magnetic Flow Meter work?
The principle of operation for the magnetic flowmeter is based on the Faraday’s Law of Electromagnetic Induction.
An electrical current (I) is applied to a coil package inside the flowmeter.
As a result, a magnetic field (B) is created across the metering pipe.
When a conductive liquid flows through the magnetic field, a small voltage (u) is induced. This voltage is proportional to the velocity of the flow and is accurately measured by two stainless steel electrodes mounted opposite each other inside the metering pipe. The two electrodes are connected to an advanced electronic input circuitry which processes the signal and in turn feeds it to the a microprocessor inside the electronics module. The microprocessor then calculates the volumetric flow and controls the various outputs on the terminal board.
