Working Principle

Accurate record-keeping is essential for professionals to correctly monitor the slurry spread across each field and ensure full compliance with regulations. To achieve this, the best flow meter for the job should be chosen based on the type of liquid being measured and the application. For example, electromagnetic meters are ideal for measuring slurry and corrosive liquids due to their precise measurements.

The principle of a magnetic flow meter is based on Faraday’s Formula. This states that the voltage generated in a conductor (E) is proportional to the velocity of the conductor (V) multiplied by the magnetic field strength (B) multiplied by the length of the conductor (D).

V x B x D is proportional to E

Where:

E = the voltage generated in a conductor.

V = the pace of the conductor.

B = the magnetic subject strength.

D = the duration of the conductor.

The measured fluid must be electrically conductive to use this principle in flow measurement with a magnetic flow meter. According to Faraday’s Law, the signal voltage (E) is dependent on three factors: V, B, and D.V is the standard liquid velocity. B is the magnetic subject strength. D is the length of the conductor (the distance between the electrodes). Using Faraday’s Formula, magnetic flow meters can measure the flow rate of electrically conductive liquids with accuracy and precision. This makes a magnetic flow meter an indispensable tool for engineers and professionals working with electrically conductive liquids.

Why is Slurry Flow Meter Important?

Accuracy is essential when spreading any slurry or digestate. Monitoring the process with a slurry flow meter is crucial to ensure consistent application. At the same time, it is vital to ensure that only what is needed is used. Over-application can lead to wasted resources, which could cost more than necessary. Additionally, it could lead to pollution issues that may not comply with legal regulations and potential contamination of soil or water courses. Therefore, to ensure professional application, it is vital to monitor the spreading process with a slurry flow meter and keep within the necessary limits.

The Challenges of Slurry Flow Meters

There are several factors to consider when designing flow meters for slurries:

• The profile and velocity of the flow. A balance must be struck between keeping solids in motion and not speeding them up.
• Fluid content of solids.
• Carrier fluid-solid properties.
• Their shape and size vary, among other characteristics.
• Fluid chemical composition.
• Fluid liners for corrosive fluids.
• The solidity of the abrasive.
• Noise caused by rough solids interferes with the measurement.
• It is possible to use abrasiveness liners if necessary.
• Measurement accuracy and stability may be affected by heavy slurry noise
• Due to the slurry’s mechanical damage, replacement cycles are shorter.
• Cleaning the electrodes with high-density red mud requires frequent maintenance.
