Flow Technology Introduces the EL 2200 Series of Electromagnetic Flow Meters
TEMPE, Ariz., — Flow Technology, Inc. (FTI), a leading manufacturer of precision flow measurement instruments, systems and calibrators, today announced the introduction of the Extended Linearity (EL) 2200 Series of electromagnetic flow meters. Available in line sizes from 1-16 inches, these meters represent the state-of-the-art for accurate flow measurement in water cycle and process applications. First in a new line of electromagnetic flow meters, the EL 2200 Series creates a unique electromagnetic field profile that ensures accuracy not only in turbulent flow, but also during the transitional and laminar flow regimes. The meters provide extended linearity and a wide measurement range of up to 1000:1 without the aid of linearization software. The EL 2200 has a bi-directional flow capability with no moving parts and no pressure drop.
Flow Technology Vice President of Marketing Ralph Duffill described the EL 2200 Series electromagnetic flow meters as a much-needed solution for users with applications requiring extended linearity. He said, Flow Technology is pleased to offer the EL 2200 Series—advanced instruments providing the latest performance features at a very competitive price. The meters incorporate a unique field generation structure providing 1000:1 turndown and allowing wide rangeability with a single unit. The EL 2200 Series electromagnetic flow meter bases its operation on the Faraday Principle, by which a conductor crossing a magnetic field generates a potential. The resultant potential is directly proportional to the flow velocity. The meter employs a 304 stainless steel flow tube with carbon or stainless flanges, as well as a sealed electrode and coil assembly providing immunity to humidity variation. Two Hastelloy C 22 electrodes are used to generate the magnetic field, with a third electrode dedicated for ground to eliminate the need for costly grounding rings required by other manufacturers. The meter’s standard liner material is PTFE for one- to six-inch meter sizes, and Ebonite for sizes larger than six inches. Flange and sensor exterior surfaces are coated with acrylic paint, providing excellent resistance to water.
