New ModMAG® M7600 ELECTROMAGNETIC FLOW METER PROVIDES IDEAL SOLUTION FOR CONCRETE BATCHING APPLICATIONS

MILWAUKEE, Wis. – Badger Meter announces the introduction of the M7600 electromagnetic flow meter, an addition to its accurate, high-performance ModMAG® family. The Badger Meter M7600 Flow Meter combines the most advanced electromagnetic flow metering technology, with a simple, yet robust output, providing an easy-to-use flow measurement solution for use in a wide range of concrete batching applications.

The M7600 electromagnetic flow meter achieves an accuracy of ± 0.5% of rate for velocities greater than 1.64 ft/s and ±.008 ft/s for flow rates less than 1.64 ft/s with a repeatability of ± 0.1%. Its rugged design ensures exceptional reliability in demanding environments. The meter features a non-intrusive open flow tube that virtually eliminates pressure loss, and with no moving parts to impede the flow stream, maintenance is kept to a minimum — even in less than ideal fluid conditions. The M7600 is the ideal metering device for clean or reclaimed water batching in ready mix, precast, prestress, and block plants, and requires minimal maintenance over a long operating period.

Greg Perona, product manager, Badger Meter, commented, “The M7600 electromagnetic flow meter was specifically developed for applications in harsh environments, such as concrete batching. Its fully-enclosed transmitter protects an internal LCD display and electronics from dirt, debris and other hazardous conditions. Plus, its rugged construction makes the meter ideal for operation in the concrete industry.”
