FPI Mag (Full Profile Insertion) Flow Meter Delivers High Accuracy With New CSA Certification


Ideal for Municipal Water or Effluent Wastewater Treatment, Industrial Process Intake Water, Feed Water, Chilled Water, Cooling Water, Water Recycling

Hemet, CA——Municipal and industrial engineers will find McCrometer’s popular FPI MagTM (Full Profile Insertion) Electromagnetic Flow Meter now features the new M-Series Converter, providing excellent accuracy to ±0.5% of reading. The FPI Mag Flow Meter also has obtained CSA certification to UL 61010-1 and CSA C22.2 No.61010-1-04, expanding the markets and applications for this meter.

            Featuring an advanced filtering algorithm, McCrometer’s M-Series Converter supports FPI Mag Flow Meter accuracy of ±0.5% of reading from 1 to 32 ft/s and ±1% from 0.3 to 1ft/s. The M-Series Converter, now standard with all McCrometer mag meters, offersmany other new features, including: built-in dual 4-20 mA outputs for communication flexibility, additional programmable outputs to support SCADAsystems and a simplified menu structure for ease of use.

 The FPI Mag Flow Meter is the industry’s only hot tap full profile insertion flow meter available on the market. The FPI Mag installs without service interruption making it ideal for retrofits, upgrades and maintenance projects and sites never metered before. The hot tap installation significantly reduces installation time by eliminating the need to de-water lines or cut pipe, saving customers up to 45%.

David Corbin, Senior Product Manager with McCrometer, said, “The combination of accuracy, installation ease and application versatility provides a unique set of features and application benefits. Our new accuracy, which rivals that of competitive technologies, combined with new certifications is continuing to open up newapplications and helps plants run more efficiently at lower cost.  We are talking with new plant and process teams that didn’t realize they had an alternative flow meter option.”

            The FPI Mag is available for forward-flow only or a bi-directional measurement for linesizes from 4 to 138 inches. The flow sensor comes pre-calibrated from McCrometer’s NIST traceable Calibration Lab and requires no recalibration in the field.

            The FPI Mag supports liquid flow measurement requirements in municipal water and effluent wastewater treatment, industrial process intake water, feed water,chilled water, cooling water, fire water, water recycling and effluent discharge. Typical municipal water applications include: wells, booster stations, effluent, filter balancing and backwash, pumping stations, UV dosing and potable water distribution.

            The FPI Mag Flow Meter also supports applications in a wide range of industrialprocess plants including chemical, electric power, food/beverage, oil/gas refining, metals/mining, pulp/paper and more.. The flow meter is also ideal for campus style facilities for chilled water and HVAC applications.
