Electromagnetic Insertion Probe Flowmeter from Hydreka
HydrINS 2 features easy installation without flow interruption
Toronto, ON (February 9, 2011) –Providing a flowmeter with maximum functionality, Hydreka has launched a new version of the HydrINS 2 electromagnetic insertion probe. The HydrINS 2 can be used throughout a water distribution network to measure flow rates at reservoirs, waterworks, pumping stations, water pipes and DMA zones.
Using an electromagnetic sensor to measure bi-directional flow rates for a variety of pipe sizes, the HydrINS 2 can be used as a portable or a dedicated/ permanent instrument. “Hot tap” installation provides an uninterrupted supply throughout the installation process. The unit features direct output of monitoring information to datalogging devices, and supports an optional LCD display for local (<650 feet) viewing of readings. HydrINS 2 includes Winfluid software to set up the probe and profile the pipe in order to calculate the real profile factor (in case of flow disturbances). Both the probe and display are watertight, rated to IP68. Depending on the settings, battery life can last up to 10 years.
The product features a reinforced stem, anti-ejection chain, locking nut and insertion point clamp for easy installation. The HydrINS 2 is also easily linked to other Hydreka water monitoring products with a push-fit connector for pressure management and a watertight military specification connection for dataloggers.
