Latest product launches


Posted: Tuesday 13th January 2009

KROHNE has launched the OPTIFLUX 2070, a new water meter that combines the reliability and accuracy of the tried and tested OPTIFLUX range of electromagnetic flowmeters, with a battery powered converter to overcome the traditional problems encountered when measuring water flow.

Mechanical meters have been the standard method of measuring bulk water flow in drinking water networks, well connecting chambers and sprinkler irrigation systems for over 100 years. However, the internal mechanism inside these meters restricts water flow and introduces a pressure drop across the meter. The moving parts also wear over time and this affects the long term measurement stability and reliability of these meters.

KROHNE’s OPTIFLUX 2070 electromagnetic water meter overcomes these problems. It has no internal moving parts and therefore offers much improved long-term measurement accuracy and reliability. It also does not impede the flow of water.

The instrument is completely self-contained and does not need an external power supply. Its integral battery powers the unit for up to 6 years. Operating costs can also be reduced by using the OPTIFLUX 2070 as it eliminates the need for in-line filters, rectifiers and regular cleaning and maintenance procedures that are required by mechanical meters.

The meter will operate accurately and reliably in what have traditionally been problematic applications, such as those where there are particles suspended in the water or where there is bi-directional water flow. It can be installed on pipe sizes ranging from DN50 – DN600.

The OPTIFLUX 2070 can be supplied with the sensor and converter in a single unit or separately. This is particularly useful with applications where flow measurement needs to be taken underground or underwater.
