McCrometer's Full Profile Insertion Flow Meter installs without interrupting service or de-watering lines
McCrometer introduces the FPI Mag (Full Profile Insertion) Electromagnetic Flow Meter. The FPI Mag is the successor to McCrometer’s Multi-Mag Insertion Flow Meter, a multi-electrode hot tap full profile insertion flow meter that is designed to deliver a continuous total flow profile similar to a full-bore mag meter.
The design of the Full Profile Insertion Flow Meter features additional sensing electrodes and is packaged in a 316 stainless steel sensor body. The sensor is coated with a NSF-certified 3M fusion-bonded epoxy coating.
The FPI Mag with hot tap installation addresses the need for municipalities to provide uninterrupted service 24/7, but is also designed to improve process control and delivery accountability. The Full Profile Insertion Flow Meter installs without interrupting service, de-watering lines, cutting pipe or welding flanges.
The FPI Mag meter’s compact insertion design fits in confined spaces with limited access. The flow meter can be removed in pipes under pressure for inspection, cleaning, calibrating or verification with McCrometer’s NIST-traceable Calibration Lab.
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 sensor body are designed to 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 four to 138 inches. 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 requires no recalibration in the field.
