SPRING HOUSE, Pa. (November 2004) - Siemens Energy & Automation introduces a new, maintenance-free, battery-operated magnetic flowmeter for irrigation applications including, measuring the water transport to farm outlets. Meters range is size for 2 inch to 12 inches in diameter.

The high accuracy and long battery life of SIEMENS MAG 8000 flowmeter offers a competitively priced alternative to propeller-style flowmeters. They feature higher accuracies up to 1% of actual flow. The MAG 8000 flow meter can also be installed directly on the water well discharge, which results in lower installation costs without sacrificing accuracy.

There are no propeller or bearings to replace, and the MAG 8000 is obstruction-free and with no moving parts. The only maintenance needed on this flow meter would be a 5-minute battery replacement. The MAG 8000 flowmeter will operate maintenance free for 6 years in a typical application.

The MAG 8000 is easy to install. Its low-flow tube design improves low-flow performance with minimal pressure drop. Each unit comes with an IP68/NEMA 6P enclosure, integrated data logger, and open communications platform. The MAG 8000 flowmeter complies with most international approvals.
