Yo-Ho-Ho! Mag Meter Installed at New Pirate Themed Aquarium

Taking you on a journey underwater through a fantasy pirate world of lost treasure, sunken ships and fascinating marine life is the brand new Aquarium located on Skegness seafront.

The multi-million pound attraction, which opened on the 25th June, hosts a number of tanks housing an incredible variety of fish, from venomous predators to colourful shoals of tropical fish. The facility has a main large tank and several smaller innovative aquariums.

The main tank holds 40,000 litres of water and two storage tanks also hold 40,000 litres each, which are used to condition the water of the main tank, as well as sub-systems. With inherent advantages over more conventional water meters, the ModMag M2000, electromagnetic flow meter from Badger Meter was selected as an element of the water system by the construction company who undertook the project.
Construction site manager Peter Kent of K-Net Construction said: “Building an aquarium is an extremely delicate process and we need to make sure cons…

Celebrating 110 Years of Innovation

Badger Meter recently celebrated their 110th Anniversary with a company executive party, held in a venue by the water of Lake Michigan.

The theme of the event — “110 Years of Making Water Visible” — recognises the company’s history of innovation and new products. In 1905 the first ‘frost proof’ water meter was invented by two Milwaukee entrepreneurs, little did they know that their invention would be the foundation for a company that has grown to be a worldwide leader in flow measurement technology. 

Today Badger Meter products help water utilities, domestic, commercial and industrial customers measure virtually anything that moves through a pipe. The company’s products measure water, oil, chemicals, and other fluids, and are known for accuracy, long-lasting durability and for providing valuable and timely measurement data. 

As a UK representative of Badger Meter, here at Bell Flow Systems we are proud to supply their industry-leading products. To learn more please visit our Badger Meter…

For Flow Measurement Virtually Anywhere

The ModMag M5000 is a battery-operated electromagnetic meter that provides the flexibility to install a reliable water flow meter virtually anywhere without sacrificing accuracy or performance.

Designed, developed and manufactured under strict quality standards, ModMag M5000 features two internal battery packs with more than 20 years operation and a sophisticated processor based signal conversion with accuracies of ±0.5%.

Electromagnetic flow meters have inherent advantages over other more conventional technologies, with no moving parts and a choice of liner and electrode materials, these meters can be used to measure conductive fluids, water and wastewater for instance including water containing particles such as sand or gravel.

As standard the ModMag M5000 is equipped with a pulse output and an internal datalogger which can be read-out via Modbus RTU protocol. Data can also be retrieved via radio frequency or GSM/GPRS. Thus the data can be centrally collected and evaluated.


Solving a Sticky Problem...

High viscosity fluids or fluids with changeable viscosity can be problematic to meter effectively. Used as an animal feed additive molasses typically has a viscosity in the region of 5000cPs but can reach 10,000cPs based on blend and temperature.

Macnaught MX-Series models fitted with high viscosity rotors rated to 1,000,000cPs are used which retain their accuracy regardless of changes in viscosity while providing a low pressure drop. Where fluids are heated to high temperatures but still remain viscous MX-Series models with combination high temperature and high viscosity rotors are used at up to 150c and 1,000,000cPs.
