Flow Meters IZMAG™ and IZMAG²™

Electromagnetic flow metering ensures accuracy and offers reliability. In the process industry, the electromagnetic flow meter has a special position in the flow metering technology. With the IZM™ family GEA created a product covering all essential applications for the flow or volume metering.

Electromagnetic flow meter type IZMAG™ - completely made from stainless steel

The electromagnetic flow meter type IZMAG™ is suitable for metering both the flow rate and the volume of all kinds of liquids that have a minimum conductivity of 5 µS/cm. The IZMAG™ is completely made from stainless steel and it is anyway equipped with a display unit, immaterial of the device version preferred. A built-in Bluetooth interface even permits a wireless communication with the metering device. 

Pulse outputs and an analog output are always available. Actions and processes can be controlled via a digital input. The IZMAG™ can be delivered either in an all-in-one version or with “discrete” signal transmitter and electronics box.

 

Other features: 

  • The parameters of the flow meter can be set without opening the housing.
  • Both the “quick-start” function and the language change-over offer a simple and user-friendly parameter setting.
  • The display can be turned into different directions, always keeping its good readability.
  • Plain text messages and graphics display of the flow profile are helpful for commissioning.
  • The automatic change of the measuring range enables measurements even at high flow rates.
  • The electronics are continuously monitored and if necessary recalibrated by the high-stable “IN-CAL” module.
  • The integrated empty-pipe detector avoids undefined counting actions in case of empty pipelines.
  • At a suddenly caused vacuum, the liner will keep stable even at high temperatures.
  • A bidirectional flow measurement is possible.

Electromagnetic flow meter type IZMAG²™ - Vacuum-tight, temperature-stable and resistant to hot steam

Electromagnetic Flow Meter IZMAG²™ with special measuring tube design

Combined with the evaluating electronics of the IZM-SE™ or IZM-TE™ series, the electromagnetic flow meter, type IZMAG²™, with its special measuring tube design is suitable for custody transfer measurements according to its official approval. The IZMAG²™ measuring tube has been designed specifically to do without any inlet and/or outlet pipe sections. This means for the user that space is saved while the effectiveness is still increased at a measuring accuracy of +/-0.2%.

Among other tasks, IZMAG²™ is ideally suited for use on vehicles according to DIN40839. 

Vacuum resistance is reached by mechanical anchoring of the synthetic material to a stainless steel lattice. The sensitivity to water vapor that is typical for coated liners and the susceptibility to high cleaning temperatures (>80°C) are not an issue for IZMAG²™.

The IZMAG²™ is available both in compact and separated design.

Technical features of the IZMAG²™

  • No or only small (for custody transfer applications) inlet and outlet sections required  
  • Suitable for the use on vehicles according to DIN40839 and OIML Doc. 11/A1.4.X  
  • Special design, appropriate for custody transfer applications (option) according to OIML (PTB) and Evaluation Certificate (NMI) for the use within MID-approved systems  
  • Vacuum-tight as well as temperature-stable and resistant to hot steam  
  • Compact and separated design possible  
  • Different process connections can be used due to the adapter technology

Device compensation, directly in the running process

Calibration: GEA flow meter with calibration function, type DI-MASTER™

Calibration By Means Of Reference Meter and Calibration Function Type DI-MASTER™

GEA's electromagnetic flow meters type IZM are suitable for the measurement of all liquids with a minimum conductivity of 5 µS/cm.

The typical measuring tolerance of the device IZM-S™ is at +/- 0.25%. In order to calibrate the flow meter directly in the process with a master meter, an accuracy of at least +/- 0.1% is required. A special software and calibration complies with this demand.

For 5 flow rates, this device configuration offers a compensation of the electromagnetic flow meter IZM-S™ to a deviation 'zero'!

Technical features of the DI-MASTER™

  • Measuring accuracy of +/- 0,1 % 
  • It is not necessary to disassemble the meter to be checked, i.e. low checking expenditure 
  • Measurement "in motion" during the running production 
  • Automatic calibration is possible 
  • Documentation by means of printer or data base on a PC

Rotary piston meters, turbine meters, electromagnetic flow meters etc. can equally by checked.  Several "master meters" on a mobile frame can cover the whole flow range of a company.
