When choosing an electromagnetic flow meter, it’s important to consider a selection process that will provide the best possible solution for your flow meter application. Electromagnetic flow meters are typically the meter of choice when considering cost, accuracy, and longevity. Here are some tips that can assist with ensuring that the electromagnetic flow meter is the right choice:
Since electromagnetic flow meters have no moving parts, maintenance is typically very minimal. Expected service life is 30 years. Depending on your fluid media and/or water quality, the electrodes may need to be periodically cleaned according to the manufacturer’s recommendations.
As you compare different electromagnetic flow meters, be sure to calculate the cost of installation and maintenance, and also amortize the cost of the flow meter over its lifespan.
