Volumetric flow meters
Operating principle of volumetric flow sensors
Volumetric flow sensors belong in the category of process sensors, and are often also referred to as flow meters. Magnetic-inductive volumetric flow sensors can be distinguished by their reliability and accuracy. Mag meters are based on Faraday‘s principle of induction. The conductive medium, flowing through a pipe with a magnetic field, generates a voltage proportional to the velocity or the flow quantity. The sensor electronics process the voltage, determined via electrodes, and provides it as an analog value, switching signal, or frequency output for further processing.
Applications of volumetric flow meters are, for example:
- Volumetric flow monitoring in cooling circuits of induction furnaces and machine tools
- Flow rate measurement of conductive media, e.g. in coolants in welding systems
