Magnetic-inductive flow meters are based on the Faraday principle, by which a conductor which traverses a magnetic field generates a potential oriented perpendicular to that field. The flow tube is enclosed by two flanges and also by two coils. The magnetic field which is generated by the electric current running through the coils induces a potential difference in the electrodes that is proportional to the flow being measured.
A WIKA signal converter, either attached directly to the instrument or separated from it (e.g. model FLC-608), generates the current to supply the magnetic coil, detects the potential difference between the electrodes, processes the signal to calculate the flow and manages communication with the external control systems.
The model FLC-1000EL has been developed for the accurate flow measurement of liquids and slurries that are difficult to quantify with other types of sensors.
The special wafer version enables easy installation between UNI 2223 flanges from PN 16 to PN 40 or between ANSI 150 and 300 flanges.
The measuring instrument has an excellent resistance to water, even with permanent immersion.
