Electromagnetic Flowmeter for
Partially-filled Pipes
Introduction
The LF502 electromagnetic flowmeter uses Faraday's
Law of electromagnetic induction in the same way as
conventional electromagnetic flowmeters to measure
the flow rate. Position of electrodes in the LF502 is so
designed that it can be used even in a partially-filled
pipe to measure the flow rate.
Improved functional magnetic field distribution
technique enables a high-precision flow measurement
continually from low-level to fully-filled flow
conditions. This eliminates unnecessary piping work
such as lifting the downstream pipe section to fill the
detector pipe.
Compared with flowmeters measuring the flow rate by
means of flow level, the obstruction less LF502
flowmeter does not usually allow mud, sands and other
solid sediment stay at the bottom of the detector pipe
and is unaffected by wave or floating solids on the fluid
surface.
The AF900 hand-held terminal (HART*
communicator) can be used to communicate with the
flowmeter from a remote place.
*1: HART protocol (Highway Addressable Remote
Transducer) is a communication protocol for industrial
sensors recommended by the HCF (HART
Communication Foundation).

    ■ Piping Precautions (1) Flange connection The flowmeter has upstream and downstream flanges on the ends of detector pipe. Connect these flanges with the flanges on both sides of pipeline bore using connection bolts after inserting a gasket between them. See Figure 7. Tighten the bolts in even increments diagonally across.
