Magnetic flowmeters are incredibly versatile

FOXBORO, Mass. — Magnetic flowmeters are incredibly versatile. In industries including water and wastewater processing, pulp and paper, chemicals, metals, and mining, they are counted upon to measure many of the world’s heaviest, highest volume, most abrasive, and dirtiest fluid flows. On the other hand, in applications involving pharmaceutical, food, dairy, or beverage production, their simple design and high measurement accuracy make them essential to the dispensing, blending, and production of high-value, high-quality ingredients and products for human consumption.  

At the heart of every magflow meter is a basic idea. Magflow meters operate based on Faraday’s Law of magnetic induction. It states that the voltage induced in a circuit is proportional to the time rate of change of the magnetic flux linking that circuit—in this case, the rate at which a liquid flows through a magflow meter.
