NEW PRODUCT ANNOUNCEMENT FLOMEC® QSE Mag Flowmeter Makes Electromagnetic Flow Measurement Accessible
To Commercial & a Wide Varity of Industrial Applications Engineers Deliver the ‘Trinity’ of Better Performance, Higher Quality & Lower Cost Wichita, Kansas – FLOMEC Engineers at Great Plains Industries, Inc. (GPI®) are introducing
the breakthrough FLOMEC QSE Mag electromagnetic flowmeter (QSE Mag). By harnessing
innovative engineering and U.S. precision manufacturing GPI delivers better performance,
higher quality and an attractive price. “Our engineering team took an entirely fresh look at flowmeters, utilizing new materials, new
design ideas and new manufacturing methods to achieve the first real breakthrough in
electromagnetic flowmeters in years,” said Vic Lukic, CEO of Great Plains Industries, Inc. “This
type of breakthrough has to come from engineering. It can’t be produced from sourcing, offshoring or unsustainable pricing schemes.” The QSE Mag dramatically raises performance expectations for monitoring flow measurement
and is priced comparably to far lower performing meters currently employed in commercial and
industrial applications. Examples include water/wastewater, cooling tower, turf, landscape, and
other water reclamation applications. The QSE Mag reads flow rate with an accuracy of + 0.5% and provides cumulative total
monitoring in applications. With no moving parts, the QSE Mag permits open unobstructed
flow, minimizing flow disturbances and straight pipe requirements in seven line sizes from ½” to
4” pipes. This allows the QSE Mag to be used in piping configurations where there is little space
between the meter and an elbow or valve. In addition, the Noryl™ flow tube, housing and
sleeves can withstand fluid temperatures from 0° F to 210°F. -more- The QSE Mag is an externally powered meter that provides an open collector pulse output.
Additionally, it can be used with a FLOMEC® 09 Electronic Display, as well as with remote
reading, data logging, pulse-to-analog conversion, BTU measurement and telemetry applications.
The QSE also provides a wide turndown ratio of 60:1. “By taking a completely fresh engineering approach, we were able to meet the FLOMEC
promise to always deliver metering products that are better performing, higher quality and lower
cost than existing products in the market,” said Edwin Fetzer, QSE Mag Lead Engineer. The QSE Mag is also compatible with the new FLOMEC App, an Android mobile app that uses
Bluetooth® wireless technology for complete meter configuration and programing in minutes.
The FLOMEC app interface allows for meter operation to be viewed in real-time and provides
the ability to receive technology downloads and feature upgrades via Bluetooth. BACnet
communications pending.
