 Valley Air Solutions’ magnetic flow meters are a cost-effective wastewater measurement solution for many dairy and other agricultural applications. Compared to conventional flow technology, they improve on-site measurement performance and decrease costs associated with maintenance, says the company.

    The VDP wastewater magnetic flow meter system consists of the flowtube, transmitter and data logger. The system uses unique sensing technology, which eliminates the large and costly magnetic coils used in conventional magmeters, as well as the need for a flow tube liner. The VDP tubes are constructed from PVC to be low-cost and lightweight. They are intended for use in plastic pipework in sizes 2” to 12”.

    All VDP wastewater flow meters offer a uniquely high signal-to-noise ratio, up to three times higher than conventional AC and up to 30 times higher than pulsed DC magmeters. The meters feature up to 250 day data logging.

    Wastewater sensors insert into the VDP flowtube via standpipes. Each sensor includes a sensing coil, a reference coil and is available in various electrically insulative materials. Two conical measurement electrodes and one grounding electrode protrude through the insulative materials, which also insulates the electrodes from the piping. All internal sensor components and wiring are encapsulated using a solid setting insulator material.
