Precise measurement results of the volumetric flow, flow rate, and temperature are key figures for an efficient process management. A high signal quality ensures that the process can be operated with the highest reliability, minimal use of resources, and the lowest possible energy consumption. Volumetric and calorimetric sensors are used in all liquid media.
Both technologies can be used to measure the flow rate (m/s) in the measuring tube. The magnetic inductive flow sensor uses this information to calculate the volume flow (m3/h), while the calorimetric sensor uses the temperature signal (°C) to determine the output flow rate. Both processes are used to capture and control flowing processes. To determine the optimal technology to be used, the medium, the process environment, and the desired control integration must be taken into account. Baumer supplies the most efficient measurement method for all cases.
