McCrometer L Series Marsh Multi Mag™ Hot Tap Insertion Magnetic Flow Meter

Marsh Multi Mag™ Hot Tap Insertion Magnetic Flow Meter
L Series

A single patented sensor with multiple electrodes constantly measures flow profiles unlike single point flowmeters. Sensors available for 2 and 3 Taps Streamlined sensor shape does not disrupt water flow and has negligible pressure loss resulting in lower energy costs.

• Installs Close to Bends/Elbows
• Electromagnetic Technology
• 2 Year Sensor Warranty
• No Ports to Clog
• For pipe sizes 4” and up
• Low and/or High Flow Rates

Measurement Volumetric flow in filled flow conduits 4" (101.6 mm) to 120" (3 m) utilizing insertable electromagnetic averaging sensor. Flow indication in English Std. or Metric units. Contact factory for larger pipe sizes.
