An electrically conductive media flowing through an oriented magnetic field, in accordance to Faraday’s law of induction, will induce a voltage proportional to the media flow velocity and hence the volumetric flow.
The PIT-sensor from Kobold is available with an integral or remote mount transmitter. A retracting device for installing and uninstalling under process conditions is available.
The magnetic-inductive PIT flow velocity sensor is used to measure or monitor the volume flow of liquids, slurries, and other electrically conductive media while minimizing pressure drop.
Pressure, temperature, density, and viscosity do not affect the volume measurement. Solid particles and small gas pockets should be avoided.
Advantages include a variety of wetted materials, electrodes in Hastelloy, Tantalum, and Platinum (other materials upon request) and retracting device for use under process conditions.
