Using Magmeters in Zero Upstream and Zero Downstream Applications

MagmeterThis video provides excellent information on installing magnetic flowmeters when you do not have optimal piping situations. The video also provides the viewer with an excellent overview of how Magmeters work.

The presentation reviews topics such as how Magmeter works, mounting configuration, best practices, alternatives for when required upstream/downstream piping distances are not available, the importance of a full pipe, and what kind of accuracy you can expect in less than ideal piping situations.

Dairies have been hampered by a limited selection of flowmeters to process raw ingredients and maximize productivity. Faced with limited choices for instrumentation, the Food and Beverage Industry is always interested in new products and certification. In this case, the product is a "Clean in Place" (CIP) electromagnetic flow meter (Magmeter) with Pasteurized Milk Ordinance (PMO) approvals.

Clean-in-place (CIP) is a method of cleaning the interior surfaces of process equipmentpipes, vessels, and fittings, without disassembly. This is an invaluable technology in the dairy, brewery, beverage, processed foods, cosmetics, and pharmaceutical industries by providing a cleaning process which is faster, far less labor-intensive, more consistent, and with less chemical exposure to workers.

The Pasteurized Milk Ordinance, is published by the Food and Drug Administration further defines minimum standards and requirements for Grade A milk production and processing.

A Magmeter is an excellent flowmeter choice for dairy use because it is unaffected by suspended solids, viscosity, and temperature challenges typically found in food and beverage applications. Additionally, magnetic flowmeters provide:
  • Ease of installation with Tri-clamp fittings.
  • Stainless steel, obstruction less flow performance meets all sanitary requirements and is 3A certified.
  • Suitable for CIP and SIP cleaning.
  • IP67 I NEMA 4X rating that is upgradeable to IP68 /NEMA 6P.
Carrying a PMO approval provides the dairy with confidence and assurance that the magnetic flowmeters have been tested and approved precisely for use in their plant.

Basic Programming for the SITRANS F M Electromagnetic Flowmeter

The video below explains the basics of programming the SITRANS F M electromagnetic flowmeter.

The SITRANS F M MAG 5000 & 6000 are microprocessor-based transmitters engineered for high performance, easy installation, commissioning and maintenance. These transmitters are truly robust, cost-effective and suitable for all-round applications. The MAG 5000 has a measuring accuracy of ± 0.4% of the flow rate (incl. sensor), while the MAG 6000 has a measuring accuracy of ± 0.2% of the flow rate and can be fitted with optional plug-in communication modules.


Other Members of the SITRANS F M MAG Family:

SITRANS F M MAG 1100 is a wafer design sensor in stainless steel with highly resistant liners and electrodes and is designed for the general industry environment. The flangeless wafer design meets all flange standards. The SITRANS F M MAG 1100 is used in all industries where the corrosion-resistant stainless steel housing and the highly resistant liner and electrodes fit even the most extreme process media.

The SITRANS F M MAG 1100 F sensor is especially designed for the food & beverage and pharmaceutical industries and is available with hygienic and flexible process connections. It meets all sanitary requirements and is 3A certified and EHEDG approved.

The SITRANS F M  MAG 5100 W  with its patented liners of hard rubber NBR or ebonite and EPDM is a sensor for all water applications such as ground water, drinking water, cooling water, waste water, sewage or sludge applications.

SITRANS F M MAG 3100 is an electromagnetic flow sensor with a large variety of liners, electrode material and with grounding electrodes as standard, all this ensures a perfect fit for almost every flow application.
Also, measuring electrodes which are capable of withstanding the most extreme processes and various liners are available.

The SITRANS F M  MAG 3100 P sensor  is designed to meet the most common specifications within the chemical and process industries. It has PTFE or PFA liners and Hastelloy electrodes being the ideal combination. The fully welded construction provides a ruggedness that fits almost every flow application.

The SITRANS F M MAG 6000 I and the SITRANS F M MAG 6000 I Ex de transmitters have an measuring accuracy of + 0.2% of the flow rate and are designed to meet the demands of the process industry. Both versions are based on a microprocessor with a built-in alphanumeric display.
