Whether in heating water, drinking water, or sanitary technology, in industrial manufacturing companies, swimming pools, or in municipal wastewater treatment – piping systems are used across all sectors in a wide range of processes. To ensure their smooth operation, relevant parameters such as temperature, pressure and flow – are recorded with measuring systems. Flow in particular, is critical for operators and owners of supply and production systems. The flow is not just a billing-relevant parameter it also serves as an input variable for control systems and provides information on the performance of industrial or chemical processes.
"Across many sectors, oversized flow meters are still used frequently. Requiring installation by specialists and the costly interruption of production for retrofitting," says Yannic Baeuchle, Product Manager for Automation at GF Piping Systems. This not only causes unnecessary costs, but also places demands on workers. Additionally, invasive sensors encounter aggressive media and are often proven to be less durable.
GF Piping Systems, the piping and measuring technology specialist, tackles this problem with the contactless flow meter U1000 V2. The product provides reliable results and can be used cost-effectively for years without requiring entry into the piping system or interruption of the production process.
