Reduce downtime by replacing in-line magmeters with non-invasive clamp-on ultrasonic meters from FLEXIM

There are two main reasons a magmeter fails: the liner may become damaged or the meter internals become coated.

Magmeter liners fail because there must be complete electrical isolation between the electromagnetic field, and the media flowing through the meter tube. The flowing media and the electromagnetic field together create a full circuit. If the flowing media penetrates the liner, the meter will fail due to a short circuit.

The internal components can become coated with magnetite. Magnetite is the most magnetic of all naturally occurring minerals on the planet. It is common in mineral sands and is carried by water as it passes through underground caverns in the earth. When measuring the flow of water, magnetite leaves a dirty, black iron coating that is electrically conductive on the interior wall of your meter. This coating causes the meters to not work properly. While the meter is not broken, it cannot measure due to the electrically conductive coating on the inside of the meter that disrupts the electrical bridge.

Additionally, common chemicals used in the water industry such as Orthophosphate also foul the inside of a mag meter causing it to misread the actual volume.

So what can you do?

To ensure the accuracy of your flow measurements the existing magmeters will need to be replaced. Unfortunately, this can result in downtime and interruptions to water service. FLEXIM can help! With no downtime, or installation costs, ultrasonic clamp-on flow meters can give you accurate and reliable flow measurement.

Did you know... the precision measurement group at Cross was founded in 1939 by our current CEO's grandfather, Jim King. That's a whole lot of calibration!
Did you know... A fingerprint weighs about 50 micrograms. We know, we weighed it! The residue left from a finger can actually make a difference in weight results which is why we wear gloves when we calibrate weights. For reference, a sheet to paper is about 4.5 grams, that’s 4.5 million micrograms.
Did you know… Cross Company is an ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan). Our ESOP started in 1979 and as of 2006, we are a 100% employee owned! Learn more about our ESOP and how that benefits both team members and our customers.
Did you know… Cross Company has grown significantly since our start in 1954. Over the years we've acquired 26 companies! Today, our five groups have expertise in everything from industrial automation to precision measurement, and industry knowledge going all the way back to 1939.
