Ideal For Water & Wastewater Solutions: Potable Water, Chilled Water, Raw Water, Water Containing Sand & Grit, Other Debris-Free Water Monitoring Hemet, CA—June 12, 2006—McCrometer announced today the immediate availability of the proven Marsh Multi-Mag™ Flow Meter. It is an advanced measurement solution that provides unprecedented accuracy in the most difficult flow conditions—low flows, wide flow ranges, flows containing sand and grit, vertical pipes and locations near bends and elbows. The innovative Marsh Multi-Mag Flow Meter measures liquid volumetric flow rates in pipes sized from 4 to 120 inches (101.6 mm to 3 m) with a streamlined multi-point technology that creates only negligible pressure loss.  It is also available for 1-, 2- and 3-inch taps. Using a unique insertable electromagnetic averaging design, the Multi-Mag measures volumetric flow with accuracy up to ±1% of reading (from 0 to +20 feet/second + zero stability) and repeatability at 0.20 percent of the flow range. The Marsh Multi-Mag’s is ideal for a wide range of applications that include custody transfer, filter balancing, filter backwash, water treatment processes, distribution management, and well head flows.  It constantly profiles the flow, ensuring unsurpassed accuracy.  Additional benefits include a high turndown ratio, automatic sensing and correction for shifting profiles, and reduced operating costs due to its significantly lower energy requirements compared to most flow meters.  The Marsh Multi-Mag features a 4-20 mA analog output that is galvanically isolated and fully programmable for zero and full scale.  Dual alarms (2 separate outputs) are provided and fully programmable for high/low flow rates, percent of range, empty pipe, forward/reverse, polarity (normally opened/closed) and more. The Marsh Multi-Mag is a breeze to install and use. Process and plant engineers find the unit installs in minutes without shutting down the system and removes easily through standard valves. The Marsh Multi-Mag’s rugged transmitter enclosure is NEMA 4X/IP65 approved for harsh operating environments.  Separate termination and electronics compartments are provided for superior reliability and safety.  A clear window is available for local field readings and inspection.  Until recently, expensive spool-piece magmeters, turbine meters, and other insertable flowmeters that only provide a single point measurement were utilized in many water and waste facilities. After years of extensive testing and hundreds of installations worldwide, the Marsh Multi-Mag Flow Meter provides multiple measuring points precisely positioned according to pipe size to make it the most accurate flow meter available. McCrometer recently acquired Marsh-McBirney’s popular full pipe Multi-Mag and Single-Mag (formerly the Flo-System) flow meter product lines, bringing together two of the water industry’s leading suppliers of electromagnetic flow measurement technology.  For over 34 years, Marsh-McBirney has been highly regarded for its innovative, reliable and accurate flow measuring technologies. Marsh Multi-Mags are frequently selected for municipal and industrial water and wastewater applications based on their performance, ease-of-use and cost-effectiveness. Combining the strengths of Marsh-McBirney’s Multi-Mag and Single-Mag (formerly the Flo-System) products with McCrometer’s Ultra Mag® Flow Meters offers customers an unbeatable combination when it comes to performance, reliability, quality and value.   About McCrometer McCrometer’s advanced liquid, steam and gas flow measurement solutions solve complex challenges in Agriculture, Municipal/Industrial Water & Wastewater, Oil & Gas, Process Control & Plant, Electric Power Generation, and Institutional Facilities.  The company’s products and systems are found in thousands of installations worldwide.  Its products and systems meet many of the world’s most demanding industrial, safety and quality standards. * Eliminates System Shutdowns * Economical answer for large line sizes * Greater accuracy with multi-electrode sensor * Installs in crowded tight spaces * Virtually no recalibration or maintenance
