What is an Electromagnetic flow meter?

A mag meter is a flow meter that measures the flow rate based on the electromagnetic induction principle. Based on Faraday’s Law, an electrical conductor moving through a magnetic field produces an internal electric signal. In mag meters, the liquid acts as the conductor. A magnetic field is applied to the metering tube, resulting in a potential difference (voltage). The measured voltage is directly proportional to the liquid’s velocity, runs through the meter and can be measured accurately.

How Electromagnetic Flow Meters Work

The electromagnetic coils are energized employing either AC or pulsed DC excitation.

The coils generate a magnetic field around the flow tube and perpendicular to the flow

An electric signal is produced within the conductor (the liquid that is been measured)

Two electrodes pick up the signal directly proportional to the flow velocity, the intensity of the magnetic field, and the width of the pipe
