Flow Technology Announces EL 500 Series Electromagnetic Flow Meters
TEMPE, Ariz., — Flow Technology, Inc. (FTI), a leading manufacturer of precision flow measurement instruments, systems and calibrators, today announced the introduction of the Extended Linearity (EL) 500 Series of electromagnetic flow meters. Available in line sizes from 1/8 to 3/4 inch, these meters represent the state-of-the-art for accurate low flow rate measurement in a wide range of applications.
The latest in a new line of electromagnetic flow meters, the EL 500 Series creates a unique electromagnetic field profile ensuring accuracy not only in turbulent flow, but also during the transitional and laminar flow regimes. These compact meters provide extended linearity and a wide measurement range of up to 1000:1 without the aid of linearization software. The EL 500 has a bi-directional flow capability with no moving parts and no pressure drop. The meters cover the temperature range -4 to 320° F.
The EL 500 Series electromagnetic flow meters base their operation on the Faraday Principle, by which a conductor crossing a magnetic field generates a potential. The resultant potential is directly proportional to the flow velocity. The meters utilize a 316 stainless steel flow tube with AISI 316 UNI 338 male-threaded, NPT or tri-clamp/ISO 2852 fittings. Connections can be supplied in Hastelloy C or Titanium options. The standard liner material is PTFE. The flow meter enclosure is stainless steel.
