I have a honey well electro magnetic flow meter for brine controlled by a masoneilon 31000 series globe valve.
the meter gives a stable reading when the control valve is opened anywhere from 0-10% but opening the control valve any further causes the flow measurement to fluctuate wildly, sometimes full scale fluctuations.
I have simulated 4-20mA and I get a stable reading with no fluctuation at all.
the flow at the end of the run is a constant steady flow
I’ve done a bench test using water and the flow meter worked perfectly
I’ve installed grounding rings as the pipe is pfa lined through the whole circuit and it didn’t fix it( the pipe section of the flow meter is pp lined with hastelloy electrodes)
the flow meter doesn’t fluctuate when there is no flow , it stays on 0kg/hr which is good
I’ve noticed when looking at the measured values while in the parameters that the measured conductivity fluctuates a lot , 5000-20,000 us/cm every couple seconds. I would think the conductivity should stay the same as the liquid is being pumped in a loop and isn’t changing or mixing at all
I’ve had a vortex analog flow meter in series with The electro magnetic flow meter and the vortex meter gives a stable reading whereas the magnetic one fluctuates a lot
Ive attatched a pdf of the parameters and highlighted the changes ive made, is there something im missing?
