ISA 2005: Flowmeter features built-in display


Process Control

Signet 2551 Magmeter from George Fischer has been enhanced to include a built-in display, empty pipe detection, and bi-directional flow capabilities.

Tustin, CA —Enhancements to George Fischer’s Signet-2551 Magmeter include a built-in display, empty pipe detection, and bi-directional flow capabilities. Insertion style electromagnetic flow sensor is also now available with PVDF/Hastelloy C wetted parts to broaden its ability to meet a wide range of application needs. Device has no moving parts to wear or foul and accurately measures flow in dirty fluids such as those with a high content of particles, solids, and fibers.

With its built-in display, the all-in-one device allows local measurement readings to reduce the number of separate components required at the sensing point. Display indicates flow rate, permanent flow total, and re-settable flow total in one of six user-selectable languages on an easy-to-read 2 x 16 character dot-matrix LCD format. Unit can be equipped with an optional mechanical SPDT or solid-state relays for alarm indication or valve or pump control.

Unit measures flow in both directions. Frequency output is bi-directional while the 4-20 mA output can be set for single or bidrectional flow. It also can detect and indicate an empty pipe condition by sensing when the electrodes are not completely wetted and indicating the condition with a zero flow signal output.
Meter is on display at the George Fischer booth at ISA Expo 2005 , being held this week at Chicago’s McCormick Place. Check Control Engineering ’s Daily News Desk online for more from the show floor.
