Insertion type flow meters

Measuring flow in large pipes with insertion type flow meters.

Insertion type flow meters

If you need to measure the fluid flow of a larger pipe diameter, you are most likely to choose an insertion type flow meter.

But what insertion type flow meter should you use?

The market has insertion electromagnetic flowmeter, insertion vortex flowmeter, insertion ultrasonic flowmeter, insertion ultrasonic flowmeter and so on.

Next, let us compare various insertion type flow meters. Hope to help you choose the right insertion type flow meter!

When should you use Insertion type flow meters?

  1. When the pipe diameter is large;
  2. When there is a tight inner lining;
  3. When the scale in the pipe is serious;
  4. When the pipe is a poor conductor of ultrasound;
  5. When the external clamp probe fails to reach the required signal strength or the measurement is unstable.

Insertion type electromagnetic flow meter working principle

How does a magnetic flow meter work

Faraday’s Formula
E is proportional to V x B x D where:

E = The voltage generated in a conductor
V = The velocity of the conductor
B = The magnetic field strength
D = The length of the conductor


The insertion magnetic flowmeter is based on Faraday’s law.When measuring flow, a liquid flows through a magnetic field perpendicular to the direction of flow and induces a voltage proportional to the average flow rate (volume flow). Its induced voltage signal is detected through two electrodes that are in direct contact with the liquid. Voltage signal will be transmitted to the smart transmitter through a dedicated cable. The smart transmitter performs calculations based on the magnitude of the electric potential and the mathematical model of the electromagnetic flow. And converts it into a flow signal for on-site display. Including instantaneous and cumulative quantities can be display. Then output the standard 4 ~ 20MA and 1 ~ 5VDC signals to the flow secondary meter or DCS.

Flow Metering Principals

  • Differential Pressure Flowmeters
  • Velocity Flowmeters
  • Positive Displacement Flowmeters
  • Mass Flowmeters
  • For Open Channel Flowmeters – weirs, flumes, submerged orifices, current meters, acoustic flow meters and more

For different working principle, We offer different types of flow meters, like:

  • Insert ultrasonic flowmeter: can be installed and maintained without stopping production. The ceramic sensor is used for non-stop installation using a special drilling device. Generally, it is mono measurement. To improve the measurement accuracy, three channels can be selected.
  • Pipe segment type ultrasonic flowmeter: need to cut the pipeline to install, but the future maintenance can be stopped. Choice of mono or tri-channel sensors.
  • External clamp-on type ultrasonic flowmeter: can perform fixed and mobile measurement. Use special coupling agent (silicone rubber cured at room temperature or high-temperature long-chain polymer grease) for installation, and the pipeline will not be damaged during installation.
  • Portable ultrasonic flowmeter: portable use, built-in rechargeable lithium battery, suitable for mobile measurement, with magnetic sensor.
    1. Non-contact measurement method, small size, easy to carry
    2.Suitable for on-site measurement of sound conducting media of pipes of various sizes
    3.The built-in Ni-MH rechargeable battery can work for more than 20 hours
    4. Flexible user interface and easy to use
    5. Intelligent on-site printing function to ensure the integrity of traffic data
    6. Equipped with an integrated aluminum alloy protective box, which can be used in harsh outdoor environments
  • Hand-held ultrasonic flowmeter: small size, light weight, built-in rechargeable lithium battery, handheld use, equipped with magnetic sensors.
  • Explosion-proof ultrasonic flowmeter: It is used for the measurement of liquid flow in explosive environments. That is, the converter is explosion-proof and the sensor is intrinsically safe.
