Join us for a Webinar discussing the advancements, applications and benefits of Magnetic Flow Meters!
Flow measurement is vital across every industry that utilizes liquids. Instrumentation manufacturers have been investing huge capital into analyzing the changing needs of industrial markets in order to improve their offerings to the world. While there are many ways to measure flow, this presentation will focus on the rapidly growing use of Magnetic Flow Meter technology and the applications suitable for its use across a wide range of industries. Discussion on the technology inner workings will give insight and a greater understanding of the flow options available for tough applications.
Recent studies of the industrial flow market in N. America are suggesting massive growth in the use of Magnetic Flow Meters through this decade. Rising interest in highly accurate and precise equipment for flow calibration is driving growth of intelligent meters. This is happening in part to the emerging on-board diagnostics of transmitters being developed and improved. Increased manufacturer investments in Mag Meters has widened their use as a potential solution for tough applications.
