New Battery-Powered Water Meter

February 17, 2010

The WATERFLUX 3070 is a new measuring instrument that is an electromagnetic water meter for applications in the water and wastewater industry. Its 15-year battery life makes it ideally-suited to applications where no power is available. The device also has the option of a GSM module for remote transmission of measurement data and status information. The new WATERFLUX 3070 offers the user several unique benefits. Thanks to extremely short inlet and outlet installation requirements, the WATERFLUX can be installed in very narrow wells and chambers. As a magnetic-inductive meter it is highly accurate and stable, while also featuring a lower pressure drop than comparable mechanical water meters. For large diameters, the WATERFLUX 3070 has a significant price advantage compared to the lifetime cost of mechanical meters which often require filters and rectifiers as well as significantly more maintenance and cleaning.
