FPI Mag Flow Meter provides accurate measurement of full flow profile

The FPI Mag Electromagnetic Flow Meter by McCrometer is ideal for municipal water or effluent wastewater treatment, provides accurate measurements via additional sensing electrodes.

The FPI Mag (Full Profile Insertion) Electromagnetic Flow Meter is the successor to McCrometer’s Multi-Mag Insertion Flow Meter, which is reportedly the industry’s only multi-electrode hot tap full profile insertion flowmeter delivering a continuous total flow profile similar to a full-bore mag meter.

The enhanced design of the Full Profile Insertion Flow Meter allegedly features additional sensing electrodes for increased sensitivity and is now packaged in a heavy-duty 316 stainless steel sensor body for maximum structural integrity. The sensor is coated with a NSF certified 3M fusion-bonded epoxy coating for operational longevity.

The FPI Mag with hot tap installation purportedly addresses the ever increasing need for municipalities to provide uninterrupted service 24/7, but at the same time improves process control and ensures delivery accountability. The Full Profile Insertion Flow Meter from McCrometer supposedly installs without interrupting service, de-watering lines, cutting pipe or welding flanges. Installation costs are reportedly reduced by eliminating the need for heavy equipment or extensive manpower. The FPI Mag is allegedly the industry’s most economical flow metering solution for medium and large line sizes, reducing installed costs by more than 45 percent.

The FPI Mag meter’s compact insertion design fits in confined spaces with limited access and offers total accessibility. The flow meter can be removed in pipes under pressure for easy inspection, cleaning, calibrating or verification with McCrometer’s own NIST traceable Calibration Lab. It is purportedly cost-effective for retrofit applications replacing flow meters or in sites never metered before.

The FPI Mag Flow Meter’s multi-electrode sensor design compensates for variable flow profiles, including swirl, turbulence and low-flow conditions. Multiple electrodes placed across the entire sensor body continuously measure and report the average flow rate over the full diameter of pipe.

The Full Profile Insertion Flow Meter is available for line sizes from 4 to 138 inches and rivals the performance of a full bore electromagnetic flow meter. With highly stable measurement, the FPI Mag features accuracy of ±1% of reading ± 0.03 ft/sec zero stability from 0.3 to 20 ft/s velocity range. The flow sensor comes pre-calibrated from McCrometer’s NIST traceable Calibration Lab and reportedly requires no recalibration in the field.

With no moving parts and a single-piece design, the FPI Mag’s multi-electrode sensor contains nothing to wear or break, and it is allegedly generally immune to clogging by sand, grit or other debris. The FPI Mag supports liquid flow measurement requirements in municipal water and effluent wastewater treatment. Typical municipal water applications include: wells, booster stations, effluent, filter balancing and backwash, pumping stations, UV dosing and potable water distribution.
