Flow and Level Measurement Solutions

In this steadily growing industry, the once simple task of selecting the right instruments for your needs can be an overwhelming process to the beginner. With a vast array of technologies and applications shouldn’t the knowledge of suppliers and the ability to meet customers needs be more important than price? And if so how do you find the right products and supplier for your needs?

Know your Flow

The selection of any flowmeter will be dictated by the type of fluid medium being measured as fluids and gases behave differently when flowing due to their viscosity and density. Profiling the flow characteristics will narrow down the selection to a pool of technologies. Furthermore, Fluids can be separated into Newtonian and non- Newtonian types and again this will reduce the selection further.

With gaseous fluids pressure and temperature are critical parameters which must be taken in to consideration when selecting flow instrumentation. A further complication is the units of measurement such as Normal, Standard or Actual. Incorrect selection can often cause confusion and significant errors of measurement. Several other key criteria are the dynamic measured range and the type of environment, is the instrument to be mounted in a Hazardous or Safe Area, materials,
chemical compatibility and much more.

Unbiased advice

One of the advantages of working with a specialist distributor is our unbiased approach to your application, as we are not tied to a specific manufacturer we can choose from a wide variety of products and not to the determent of technical support or knowledge.

Magnetic Flow Meters

Welcome to the icenta selection of insertion and in-line Magflow magnetic flow meters with integral displays or analogue output for remote monitoring or data logging

The magnetic flow meter is ideal for many flow applications because of the advantages of Magflow technology making the magnetic flow meter the most common velocity device used for flow measurement.  In particular, there are no moving parts, which are subject to wear , resulting in obstructionless flow measurement with nothing projecting into the flow stream; they offer high accuracy (0.5 to 1%); they can be used in most pipes sizes; they can be used for hygienic applications and for corrosive liquids as well as water and wastewater.

Magnetic Flow Meters

Thermal Mass Flow Meters

icenta's range of  Thermal Mass Flow Meters , Mass Flow Controllers, Flow Regulators and Flow Switches are used for measuring the mass flow of clean industrial gases including:

  • Air
  • Oxygen
  • Hydrogen
  • Nitrogen
  • Helium
  • Ammonia
  • Argon

... to name a few.

Mass Flow Meters directly and continuously measures mass flow (as opposed to measuring volumetric flow) which does not require a correction for changes in fluid variables such as temperature, pressure, viscosity and density.

Contact icenta for advice on applications for Thermal Mass Flow Meters

Variable Area (VA) Rotameter Flow Meters

Mechanical Variable Area Flow Meters, also known as Rotameters allow you to view directly the flow rate of either gases or liquids by matching up the float with calibrations on the flow tube.

Rotameter technology offers robust flow solutions with no need for auxiliary power that are relatively low cost and easy to install.  As well as standard flow applications icenta's range of VA meters includes options for rugged environments, high temperatures and high pressures

Clean Water Flow Meters

Flow measurement is an important part of the water industry and a knowledge of the metering process is vital for the provision of clean water. The purification, abstraction and metering into supply and to customers all require flow measurement of some description.

Flow metering is required for quality control, calculating revenue and environmental concerns. There are many applications for the water industry requiring metering technologies.

Applications for Clean Water Flow Meters include:

  • Correct Billing
  • Accurate Water Consumption Monitoring
  • Optimising Water Usage
  • Monitoring Water Flow
  • Irrigation Water Measurement
  • Reverse Osmosis Water Treatment

... to name a few

Clean Water Flow Meters

Dirty Water Flow Meters

Dirty Water Flow Meters are normally used for the following applications:

  • Measuring effluent and outflow
  • Monitoring the amounts of water flowing through the heat exchangers in cooling towers
  • Monitoring discharge volumes of waste water from rinse or process waste
  • Monitoring discharge quantity from wastewater treatment plants
  • Monitoring flow to the condensate return and of make up water in boilers

The process and wastewater industries require a wide range of metering technologies. Magnetic flow meters are used in wastewater sytstems  while open channel meters found in monitoring flow in watercourses.

Fuel & Oil Flow Meters

An application involving high viscosity  (fuels and oils) requires caution when choosing a flow meter. The same meter calibrated for water will give incorrect information if used with higher viscosity level fluids. You also have to bear in mind any changes in temperature.

Our Fuel and Oil Flow Meters have a range of specifications and applications, please see the website for full details on how to meet your fuel and oil flow requirements

Fuel & Oil Flow Meters

Air Flow Meters

icenta  Air Flow Meters are typically used in applications such as:

  • Testing and monitoring compressor equipment air leaks
  • HVAC
  • Dryer and cooling air flow measurement
  • Wastewater aeration
  • Measurement of total air flow consumption
  • Monitoring compressed air in multiple lines to allocate energy costs and maximise facility loading
