Limitations

Magnetic flowmeters do have some specific application limitations:

1. The meters work only with conductive fluids. Pure substances, hydrocarbons, and gases cannot be measured. Most acids, bases, water, and aqueous solutions can be measured.

2. The conventional meters are relatively heavy, especially in larger sizes. Ceramic and probe-type units are lighter.

3. Electrical installation care is essential.

4. The price of magnetic flowmeters ranges from moderate to expensive. Their corrosion resistance, abrasion resistance, and accurate performance over wide turndown ratios can justify the cost. Ceramic and probetype units are less expensive.

5. Periodically checking the zero on ac-type magnetic flowmeters requires block valves on either side to bring the flow to zero and keep the meter full. Cycled dc units do not have this requirement.
