Instrument manufacturer KROHNE has launched its new IFC 050 electromagnetic signal converter for water treatment purposes, described by the company as ‘the best long-term choice for measuring volumetric flow’.

The device can be used in several applications and industries and is ‘perfect’ for any kind of wastewater treatment metering tasks.

It is also suited for water distribution networks, irrigation installation, water abstraction, and CIP cleaning stations, KROHNE notes.

The reliable measurement of water flow is critical today and will be even more so in the future as water resources become rare.

The water and wastewater treatment industries benefit by installing the kind of technology introduced by KROHNE, but there are other industries that could equally gain by using this system. These include the food and beverage, heating, ventilation, air conditioning, agriculture, and steel industries.

The signal converter can be combined with the OPTIFLUX and WATERFLUX flow sensors to complete the well-known sensor technology with new features, making it suitable for many kinds of water and wastewater metering tasks.

The output represents measured values for flow, mass, and conductivity. Meeting all industry requirements, the IFC 050 features sturdy and robust construction and a modern housing design.

Available outputs are current output (including HART®), active pulse/frequency output, status output, and Modbus.
