Badger Meter announces the introduction of the M1000 electromagnetic flow meter, an addition to its accurate, high-performance ModMAG® M-Series® family. Combining a general purpose detector with an amplifier representing the next generation of electromagnetic flow meter signal processing, the M1000 is available in an easy-to-use, "no frills" package with a streamlined feature set for use in a wide range of industrial applications. The M1000 electromagnetic flow meter achieves an accuracy rate of ± 0.3 percent and its rugged design ensures exceptional reliability in demanding environments.
The meter features a non-intrusive open flow tube that virtually eliminates pressure loss, and with no moving parts to impede the flow stream, maintenance is kept to a minimum – even in less than ideal fluid conditions. The M1000 also offers superior vibration resistance when mounted on vehicles. A wide selection of liner and electrode materials provides maximum fluid compatibility and minimum maintenance over a long operating period.Brooke Lange, product specialist, Badger Meter, commented, "The M1000 electromagnetic flow meter was specifically developed for industrial water/wastewater, machinery plants, commercial vehicles and batching process applications. Its measuring pipes are lined with material approved for use with drinking water per the NSF-61 standards. Plus, rugged construction and resistance to vibration make the meter ideal for truck-mounted operation for process fluid in the hydraulic fracturing industry. "The M1000 electromagnetic flow meter is available in 1/4…8 inch sizes and has a flow range of 0.03 to 12 m/s.
The meter is best suited for bi-directional flow measurements of fluid > 5 µS/cm (> 20 µS/cm for de-mineralized water). The amplifier includes an LCD display and is housed in a weather-resistant, NEMA 4X (IP66) enclosure, which can be integrally mounted to the detector, or if necessary, mounted remotely for an optional NEMA 6P (IP67) enclosure. The available power supply is 92…275V AC (9…36V DC).Badger Meter has broadened the M1000 communication connection protocols to include Modbus® RTU, RS232, RS422 and RS485 options. In addition, the meter offers a Data Logging feature kit for advanced analytics.
