The iMAG-Series is the most economical flanged electromagnetic flow meter on the market. It is used in 3” to 12”pipe in municipal or industrial water, waste water, pump stations and packaged plant applications. The iMAG has no moving parts and electrodes are designed to discourage fouling. This magmeter requires no maintenance in applications where debris would impede mechanical meters. There are no parts to wear out. Minimal straight pipe requirements allow iMAG-Series meters to be used in piping configurations where there is little space between the meter and an elbow.
iMAG-Series flowmeters are rated IP68 for applications where the meter may be under water up to a depth of 10 feet (3 meters) for prolonged periods of time.
Rate and total indication are standard. Rate and total units and pulse output are settable via the front panel touch key pad by the user. Bi-directional flow is standard. Forward, reverse and net flow can be read from the display. If forward and reverse flow data needs to be sent to another device, Modbus output is required.
The iMAG can be externally powered with 9-36 Vdc at 30 mA. The standard 20-foot (6 meter) cable also provides outputs for use with a variety of Seametrics and other displays and controls for remote reading, data logging and telemetry applications. 4-20mA passive current loop and high frequency outputs are optional. The iMAG 3600 remote display flowmeter can be supplied with an optional internal AC power supply.
Positioning the Meter.
These flowmeters can be installed horizontally, vertically, and in any radial position. Using a check valve on the upstream side of the meter, and/or an air vent (vacuum relief valve) in the same, unobstructed run of pipe as the meter, is required in any installation where the meter may be exposed to suction when the system is not in normal operation. Suction can cause damage to the liner. Liner damage caused by suction, without the use of a check valve and/or air vent, may void the warranty. Straight Pipe Recommendations. As with most flow meters, the iMAG requires straight pipe before and after the meter for best accuracy. However, the ability of electromagnetic meters to average the flow across the entire pipe allows for shorter straight pipe recommendations than most mechanical meters
Full Pipe Recommendations. All magmeters require a method for determining that the pipe is empty, to prevent false reading. This meter is designed to indicate ‘EMPTY PIPE’ if one or more electrodes is exposed. For highest accuracy, install the meter so that the pipe will be full when there is flow. If air bubbles may be present in the pipe or sludge accumulation is an issue, rotate the meter by one flange hole to position the control housing at a 45˚ angle
