This new sensors series follows the successful tradition of the MUT 1000, introducing a measurement range of more than 1:1000 without linearisation software.
This new sensors series follows the successful tradition of the MUT 1000, introducing a measurement range of more than 1:1000 without linearization software. These kinds of performances allow doing very accurate measures on a wide flow rate range and to count lower flow rates that before would have bee reset because of the effect of the converters cut off. This flanged sensors series bases its operation on the Faraday Principle, by which a conductor crossing a magnetic field generates a potential perpendicularly orientated to the same field.
In this case the flow tube made in stainless steel AISI 304, two coils are installed on the top and inferior part; the magnetic field, generated by the electric current crossing the coil, induces in the electrodes a difference in the potential proportional to the flow rate. With the aim of measuring such potential of very low values, the interior of the flow tube is electrically insulated, thus the process liquid is no longer in contact with the material of the flow tube.
The converter used generates the current supplying the coil, acquires the electrodes difference of potential, processes the signal to calculate the flowrate and manages the communication with the exterior. The entire sensor, when installed in the separate version, has a degree of protection IP 68 suitable for a permanent immersion in water up to a depth of 1.5m, thanks to a welded plate structure containing the coil and the electrodes.
