Does the electromagnetic flowmeter have to be installed like this?


Split electromagnetic flowmeter:

Electromagnetic flowmeter is a flowmeter that performs flow testing based on Faraday's law of electromagnetic induction. The advantage of electromagnetic flowmeter is that the pressure loss is extremely small and the measurable flow range is large. The ratio of large flow rate to small flow rate is generally more than 20:1. It is suitable for a wide range of industrial pipe diameters, up to 3m. The output signal is linear with the measured flow rate and has high accuracy. It can measure acids and acids with conductivity ≥5μs/cm. Alkaline salt solution, water, sewage, corrosive liquid and fluid flow such as mud, pulp, paper pulp etc.

Electromagnetic flowmeters are widely used in petrochemical industry, iron and steel metallurgy, water supply and drainage, water conservancy irrigation, water treatment, sewage treatment stations (environmental sewage control, chemical sewage, electroplating sewage), papermaking (pulp), mud, medicine, food and other industrial and agricultural applications. Process flow measurement and control in production companies.

Working principle of split electromagnetic flowmeter:

According to Faraday's electromagnetic induction principle, a pair of detection electrodes are installed on the tube wall perpendicular to the axis of the measuring tube and the magnetic field lines. When the conductive liquid moves along the axis of the measuring tube, the conductive liquid cuts the magnetic field lines to generate an induced electric potential. This induced electric potential is composed of two The detection electrode detects that the numerical value is proportional to the flow rate, and its value is:

In the formula:
E - induced electric potential;
K - coefficient related to magnetic field distribution and axial length;
B - magnetic induction intensity;
V - average flow rate of conductive liquid;
D - electrode distance; (measuring tube inner diameter);

The sensor transmits the induced potential E as a flow signal to the converter. After amplification, transformation and filtering, and a series of digital processing, the instantaneous flow and accumulated flow are displayed on a dot matrix LCD with backlight. The converter has 4~20mA output, alarm output and frequency output, and is equipped with RS-485 and other communication interfaces, and supports HART and MODBUS protocols.

When installing an electromagnetic flowmeter, you need to pay attention to the following points:

Installation location: The electromagnetic flowmeter should be installed upstream of the pipeline to ensure that the fluid can be evenly distributed before entering the flowmeter. At the same time, the installation location should be convenient for maintenance and calibration.

Pipeline preparation: Clean the inside of the pipeline to prevent residues in the pipe from affecting the electromagnetic flowmeter. Prepare corresponding flange and sealing materials, and prepare anti-vibration pads at the interface according to the size and specifications of the flow meter.

Installation method: Usually connected through flange, use correct tools and torque to tighten the flange to prevent leakage. Anti-vibration pads need to be installed at the interface to avoid interference caused by pipeline vibration.

Electromagnetic flowmeters

Wiring method: Follow the wiring diagram in the electromagnetic flowmeter manual to ensure that the connection between the cable and the terminal is firm and reliable, and avoid interference between the signal line and the power line.

Calibration and trial operation: Calibrate after completion of installation to ensure the accuracy of the measurement results. Before trial operation, check whether all components are installed and tightened normally.

Environmental requirements: The installation location of the electromagnetic flowmeter should avoid the influence of strong vibration and strong electromagnetic field. It is recommended to install it vertically. If installed horizontally, make sure the two electrodes are on the same horizontal plane.

Straight pipe section requirements: Keep the first 10 and 5 times the pipe diameter as the straight pipe section, which is crucial to reduce the impact of bubbles and solid particles.

Welding installation: Avoid welding the flow meter to avoid damaging the flow meter.

Grounding measures: The transmitter shell, shielded wire, measuring tube and pipes at both ends of the transmitter need to be grounded, and separate grounding points should be set to improve measurement accuracy.​

Direct sunlight: Avoid direct sunlight exposure of the electromagnetic flowmeter, which may cause high temperature.
