Types of flowmeters at JUMO

Keeping in mind the diverse needs of the industry, we offer a wide range of flow meters to suit different applications and media. Here is a brief characterization of the three main technologies for measuring the flow of liquids and other media that we offer:

Ultrasonic flowmeters (JUMO flowTRANS US series)

  • Operation: They use ultrasonic waves to determine the flow velocity of a liquid or gas in a pipe.
  • Advantages: They can measure flow in conductive and non-conductive media. They do not require physical intervention in the flow, making them non-invasive.
  • Applications: Reverse osmosis, seawater desalination, flushing water recovery, wastewater, cooling towers.

Electromagnetic flowmeters (OPTIFLUX and flowTRANS MAG series)

  • Operation: They are based on the principle of electromagnetic induction, measuring the flow of conductive liquids.
  • Advantages: They have no moving parts, which minimizes maintenance.
  • Applications: Drinking water, groundwater, wastewater, sludge, industrial water, metering systems, apparatus cooling

Turbine flowmeters (JUMO flowTRANS PW I01)

  • Operation: They use a turbine that rotates in response to fluid flow, and the speed of its rotation is proportional to the flow rate.
  • Advantages: They offer accurate measurements over specific flow ranges. High accuracy over medium and high flow velocity ranges.
  • Applications: Turbine flowmeters are ideal for measuring inert or low-aggressive media.

Orifice flow meters (JUMO flowTRANS DP R01/R02 and JUMO flowTRANS DP P01/P02/P03/P04).

  • Operation: They are based on the differential pressure generated by a flow disturbing element in the pipe.
  • Advantages: Wide measuring range, ability to work in difficult conditions such as high pressures or temperatures.
  • Applications: Thanks to its versatility, ideal for the petrochemical, power generation and food and pharmaceutical industries.

When comparing these technologies, it is clear that each has its own unique advantages. Ultrasonic flowmeters are non-invasive and can work with a wide range of media. Electromagnetic, on the other hand, offer stability and accuracy, especially in environments with conductive fluids. Orifice flowmeters, based on differential pressure, excel in reliability in high-pressure and high-temperature environments. Their versatility allows them to be used in a wide range of industries, from power generation to the food industry. Turbine flowmeters, on the other hand, are valued for their precision under specific conditions. Choosing the right technology depends on the specific requirements of your application.
