Mag Meters Approved for Use in Hazardous Areas

Specifying the correct flow meter for any application is important but becomes absolutely critical in potentially explosive environments. In these situations only meters with the correct ratings and genuine certification must be specified.

Renowned for their innovative flow meter design, Badger Meter have developed a range of intrinsically safe electromagnetic flow meters, sizes 6 – 600mm. Tested and certified to ATEX, CSA and FM, the ModMag M3000 and M4000 offer the ideal solution for applications requiring accurate flow measurement in hazardous environments.


Incorporating the latest developments in micro processing signal conditioning, the M3000 and M4000 have an accuracy of better than ±0.25% with a flow range of 0.03 to 12 m/s. Targeted to a variety of industrial and offshore applications, these full bore meters are virtually unaffected by density, temperature, pressure, and viscosity changes and provide an accurate and reliable long term metering solution for a variety of conductive fluids.

The ruggedly constructed modular design allows flow measurements in Ex-zones  1 (M4000) and 2 (M3000), in either compact format or remote display version. The amplifier housing, made of powder-coated aluminium, is approved to ingress protection class IP67. Programming can be done either with a closed housing thanks to a magnetic pen or with an open housing via three buttons. The four-line display shows all necessary data including actual flow, totalizer and status messages. A selection of outputs are featured, including Analogue, Pulse and Alarms.

The ModMag M3000 and M4000 are perfectly suited to a range of hazardous applications where accurate flow rate and totalising of conductive fluids are required. Click for more information and to buy.


A Day at the Races



As a thank you for using DHL as our preferred shipper our warehouse manager Tom Purr was invited to a VIP evening at Towcester Racecourse. Greeted by our account manager and his team, Tom was treated to complimentary drinks and a three course dinner. Tom also took part in the DHL raffle, with all proceeds going to a charity for retired greyhound racing dogs, and was lucky enough to win first prize, a DHL Manchester United shirt, which was awarded to him by the Vice President of UK sales, Neil Kuschel (pictured right).

New Business Development Manager


We would like to welcome Edward Lang to Bell Flow Systems. Edward has worked in the industry for 8 years and has previously provided sales and technical support of flow measurement, water quality, level and telemetry. As our new Business Development Manager Edward will be looking for potential company growth opportunities whilst supporting the sales team and commissioning products.

Jam-Packed September

Come see us and our products

This September we are exhibiting both at SPE Offshore Europe in Aberdeen and The Energy Event 2015 in Birmingham. Come and see how we can help you with your flow measurement needs.

First up is SPE Offshore Europe, which is one of the world's largest technical conference and exhibitions for the offshore industry. With over 1,500 exhibitors and various keynote sessions from industry leaders, this free to attend event covers all aspects of the oil and gas industry. Over the course of four days (8-11th Sept) we will be exhibiting our flow meters, instrumentation and accessories suitable for both safe and hazardous areas, such as turbines, mag meters, vortex meters and bulk fuel meters.

You’ll find us on stand 1A120. View our event profile here.



Our next stop is at The Energy Event, which is Europe’s leading and most comprehensive energy procurement and management event. The show will provide access to the services, products and advice of more than 160 exhibitors. The event is being held over two days (15-16th Sept) and it is free to attend. We are taking along our latest range of WRAS approved VuAqua water meters, RHI compliant VuHeat heat meters and clamp-on ultrasonic flow meters that meet the needs of various flow applications.

Come see us on stand D10. View our event profile here.
