A new generation of flowmeters for water and wastewater treatment applications has been launched by ABB. According to the company, the WaterMaster flowmeter range brings a host of advanced features and functionality, including superior measurement capabilities, designed to operate more efficiently, reduce costs and increase profitability.
One of these features is the WaterMaster’s octagonal sensor design. The design brings the sensor closer to the ideal square sensor geometry without the inherent problems of stresses caused at the four corners.
By improving the flow profile, the octagonal design minimises the upstream and downstream pipe lengths required from the point of installation, greatly reducing the cost of fitting the meters into new or existing pipelines.
