Measures Flow of Conductive Liquids in a Wide Range of Pipe Sizes


The ISM 5.0 Insertion Magmeter senses flow using a low maintenance electromagnetic design with no moving parts. The dual-electrode sensor and continuous auto-zero function provides electronics and patented design features help maintain its NIST traceable accuracy over time. The simplified hot tap insertion design allows for ISM 5.0 insertion and removal by hand, without a system shutdown. The ISM 5.0 Insertion Magmeter measures flow of electrically conductive liquids (20 µS/cm or greater) in full pipes. For proper measurement on plastic pipes the electromagnetic flow meter requires electrical grounding by connection to grounding rings or ground probes inserted into the pipes. Readings are not affected by the fluid temperature, pressure or viscosity.


The ISM 5.0 Insertion Magmeter installs in the pipe through a full port ball valve so the sensor can be easily retracted without having to shut down flow or drain the system. The insertion depth is adjustable according to the pipe diameter. An insertion depth gage is supplied with each flow.


Simplified Flow Measurement in Full Pipes


The ISM 5.0 Insertion Magmeter is a low cost alternative to full bore magnetic flow meters. The dual pair electrode sensor inserts through a tap in the pipe wall. It can be easily installed in new pipe systems or by hot tap in pressurized pipes with flowing liquids. There are no moving parts so obstruction to flow and pressure drop is minimal. Installation through a full port ball valve allows easy retraction and reinsertion without shutting down flow.


No Onsite Calibration Required


Based on your pipeline and size, liquid and flow rate each ISM 5.0 Insertion Magmeter is shipped from our factory configured for your application and ready to install. Connect the isolated 4-20mA output to control system or remote display, or use the relay pulse output.
