Miniature-Mag meter meets the measure.

An ultra-compact electromagnetic flowmeter has been launched in the UK by European market leader in mass flow metering and control technology, Bronkhorst UK.

Also available with an integral PID controller for flow control duties, this innovative Miniature-Mag series is suitable for measuring liquids with a low conductivity down to 5 microSiemens/cm, even as low as 0.1[micro]S/cm for some applications, and for handling flow rates between 1 litre/hr and 3,000 1/hr. Intended mainly for smaller bore installations and capable of being used on pipework bends rather than just straight runs, it is available for internal pipe diameters between 1.5mm and 12mm and features empty meter detection for when there is insufficient flow. The very high speed of response makes it ideal for batching applications, a capability further enhanced by automatic overrun compensation.

Miniature-Mag sensors do not restrict the flow path, giving 100% full bore flow. This combination of features makes it ideal for many industrial and hygiene-critical applications, such as brewing, food processing, the dairy industry, agriculture, and chemical dosing in water treatment processes.

With a footprint measuring just 100mm high x 100mm wide x 80mm deep and weighing just 800gms, the Miniature-Mag is housed in an IP67 rated dust- and water-tight housing, with the body available as standard in chemical-resistant PVDF or optional PTFE (Teflon), PVC or POM materials. There is a separate electronic display unit, with a 2 line, 16 character text readout, giving push button control of batch counting, pre-set alarms, menu selection and other functions.

The Miniature-Mag can also be specified as a flow controller, with an integral PID loop for control valve operation or direct pump control. Analogue, pulse, relay, RS232 and serial output connections are optional for interfacing with plant-wide control networks.
