The new structure for the generation of the magnetic field, the innovative route of the signal generated by the electrodes, provide a sensor with an extremely wide measurement range:
EL= Extended Linearity.
This new sensors series follows the successful tradition of the MUT 2200 / MUT 2500, introducing a measurement range of more than 1:1000 without linearization software.
These kinds of performances allow very accurate measures on a wide flow rate range and to count lower flow rates that, before, would have been reset because of the effect of the converters cut off.
This flanged sensors series bases its operation on the Faraday Principle, by which a conductor crossing a magnetic field generates a potential perpendicularly orientated to the same field.
In this case the flow tube made in stainless steel AISI 304 is equipped with carbon or stainless steel flanges, two coils are installed on the top and inferior part; the magnetic field, generated by the electric current crossing the coil, induces in the electrodes a difference in the potential proportional to the flow rate.
With the aim of measuring such potential of very low values, the interior of the flow tube is electrically insulated, thus the process liquid is no longer in contact neither with the material of the flow tube nor with that of the flange.
The converter used generates the current supplying the coil, acquires the electrodes difference of potential, process the signal to calculate the flowrate and administers the communication with the exterior.
The entire sensor, when installed in the separate version, has a degree of protection IP 68 suitable for a permanent immersion in water up to a depth of 1.5m thanks to a welded plate structure containing the coil and the electrodes.
