We have no sea, but we know how to measure salt water

Salt or sea water contains chemicals that cause different physical and chemical properties of this water than the fresh water has. They have an influence on the density, the different temperatures of the freezing and mainly on the corrosion of constructions which the sea water comes into the contact with. This phenomenon is called the salinity.

The average salinity of seawater is around 3.5%. This means that each kilogram of seawater contains approximately 35 g of dissolved salts. This makes the seawater very corrosive and seawater can´t  dissolve only the metal ions of different alloys quickly, but the sea water also has negatively effect on many other materials required to manufacture devices for measuring of flow of seawater.

Therefore, it is important to choose the suitable material of sensor lining mainly and material of electrodes of induction flow meters so that the durability and functionality could be the longest and measurement of sea water by induction flow meters the most economical.

Our company ELIS PLZEN a. s. manufactures and supplies the induction flow meters FLONET of different dimensions (DN20-DN800) suitable for these applications. Because of many years of experience with applications for seawater we’ve achieved high reliability and durability of induction flow meter for sea water measurement and our customers can significantly reduce operating costs and risks wherever they need to measure sea or salt water.

Recently we have delivered the flow meter FLONET FN2014.1 DN700 which was dispatched within 3 weeks after ordering to our Greek partner.

And next deliveries will follow for this demanding market segment soon.
