Badger Meter recently introduced the M1000 electromagnetic flow meter as an addition to its high-performance ModMAG M-Series family. Combining a general-purpose detector with an amplifier, the M1000 is available in an easy-to-use, "no frills" package with a streamlined feature set for use in a wide range of industrial applications.
The electromagnetic flow meter achieves an accuracy rate of plus or minus 0.3 percent, and its rugged design ensures reliability in demanding environments. The meter features a non-intrusive open-flow tube that virtually eliminates pressure loss. With no moving parts to impede the flow stream, maintenance is kept to a minimum – even in less than ideal fluid conditions.
The M1000 also offers vibration resistance when mounted on vehicles. A wide selection of liner and electrode materials provides maximum fluid compatibility and minimum maintenance over a long operating period.
"The M1000 electromagnetic flow meter was specifically developed for industrial water/wastewater, machinery plants, commercial vehicles and batching process applications," said Badger Meter's Brooke Lange. "Its measuring pipes are lined with material approved for use with drinking water per the NSF-61 standards. Plus, rugged construction and resistance to vibration make the meter ideal for truck-mounted operation for process fluid in the hydraulic fracturing industry."
Badger Meter has broadened the M1000 communication connection protocols to include Modbus RTU, RS232, RS422 and RS485 options. In addition, the meter offers a data-logging feature kit for advanced analytics.
The M1000 electromagnetic flow meter is available in 1/4- to 8-inch sizes and has a flow range of 0.03 to 12 meters per second. The amplifier includes an LCD display and is housed in a weather-resistant enclosure that can be integrally mounted to the detector or remotely.
