The KOBOLD MIK flow meter is used for measuring and
monitoring small to medium-sized flows of conductive liquids in
pipes. The sensor operates according to the electromagnetic
measurement principle. According to Faraday’s Law of magnetic
induction, a voltage is induced in a conductor moving through
a magnetic field. The electrically conductive media acts as the
conductor. The voltage induced in the media is proportional
to the flow velocity and is therefore a value for the volumetric
flow. The media must have a minimum conductivity of 30 μS
/cm (200 μS /cm for U0 & U1 ranges) for proper operation.
The induced voltage is picked up by two sensing electrodes
which are in contact with the media and sent to the measuring
amplifier. The flow rate will be calculated based on the cross
sectional area of the pipe.
The measurement is not dependent on the process liquid and its
material properties such as density, viscosity, and temperature.
The device may be equipped with a switch, frequency, or analog
output. Moreover, there is a compact electronic option, which
contains a switch and an analog output. The sensor series is
completed by an optional batching or totalizer electronic option.
The totalizer electronic option displays the current flow rate on
the first line of the display and shows the partial or grand total
volume on the second. A batching electronic controls simple
filling duties and also measures the flow rate, grand total
volume, and filling volume. The analog output and two relay
outputs can be utilized for the further processing.
