Burkert Fluid Control Systems provide both insertion and full bore magmeters and each are reasonable options for measuring more demanding processes.
While full bore magmeters are more commonly used, in many applications insertion magmeters offer better cost, commissioning and maintenance efficiencies.
Insertion magmeters are typically adopted when the extreme accuracy of full bore magmeters is overkill, and 2% accuracy will suffice.
Applications where insertion magmeters are appropriate include:
- well and river water pump monitoring (irrigation)
- farming and irrigation water use monitoring
- water use monitoring in process industry applications
- flocculent dosing (makeup)
- water balancing (water treatment plants)
- intake water monitoring (water treatment plants); and
- discharge water monitoring.
Service costs are also reduced, with simple installation and consistent instruments and electronics saving on maintenance.
Weld on fittings or tapping bands through the pipe make replacements easier, and insertion magmeters are easily removed for inspection and cleaning.
Insertion magmeters can be used with all types of piping, including stainless steel, cement lined and plastic.
Burkert’s Type 8045 insertion magmeters are suitable for pipe diameters from DN6 to 400mm and flow velocities of 0.2 to 10m/sec (volumes 0.02 to 4500m3 per hour).
A wide range of process media is catered to with the Type 8045 suitable for media at temperatures between 15ºC and 110ºC and up to 16 bar pressure.
Delivering a protection class of IP65, 8045 insertion magmeters offer the security of a different type with lockable self-enclosure for field applications.
Further functional benefits include 4 to 20mA, 2 Relay and transistor (pulse) outputs, with data logging, batch control and totalising operations.
3 buttons on the fascia allow for programming, with readout via a graphic display which is clearly visible through the self-enclosure.
