We have no sea, but we know how to measure salt water

Salt or sea water contains chemicals that cause different physical and chemical properties of this water than the fresh water has. They have an influence on the density, the different temperatures of the freezing and mainly on the corrosion of constructions which the sea water comes into the contact with. This phenomenon is called the salinity.

The average salinity of seawater is around 3.5%. This means that each kilogram of seawater contains approximately 35 g of dissolved salts. This makes the seawater very corrosive and seawater can´t  dissolve only the metal ions of different alloys quickly, but the sea water also has negatively effect on many other materials required to manufacture devices for measuring of flow of seawater.

Therefore, it is important to choose the suitable material of sensor lining mainly and material of electrodes of induction flow meters so that the durability and functionality could be the longest and measurement of sea water by induction flow meters the most economical.

Our company ELIS PLZEN a. s. manufactures and supplies the induction flow meters FLONET of different dimensions (DN20-DN800) suitable for these applications. Because of many years of experience with applications for seawater we’ve achieved high reliability and durability of induction flow meter for sea water measurement and our customers can significantly reduce operating costs and risks wherever they need to measure sea or salt water.

Recently we have delivered the flow meter FLONET FN2014.1 DN700 which was dispatched within 3 weeks after ordering to our Greek partner.

And next deliveries will follow for this demanding market segment soon.


DN800PN25Last summer we informed you about the successful certification of our products for the Russian market according to the set of standards GOST.

And this GOST is not just a ghost for us. The undisputed evidence is the recent 

Both flow meters were produced in our company ELIS PLZEN a. s. and also calibrated on our own test rig for metrological verification and calibration of flow meters and water meters GS1500/ of the ultrasonic flow meter SONOELIS SE4025 of dimension DN800 to our business partner in Russia and also the delivery of smaller one - DN500. The specialty of this delivery is that these flow meters are designed for pressure PN25!

There are planned similar deliveries of large dimension flow meters for extra pressure leading to Russia there soon. And we can do more! We are preparing the production of flow meters of large dimensions for pressure PN40.

GOST certificates are the ticket even to the most distant parts of Russia, where the customers can also rely on the delivery of our products according to their specific requirements and they can rely on the service of our flow meters there too.

If you are planning to realize deliveries of water or other technologies for your Russian business partners, we will be glad to inform you closer about the advantages of products certified according to the set of standards GOST and also about your benefits by their usage.

International exhibition EXPO ANEAS in Mexico

Exhibition EXPO ANEASDuring the last EXPO ANEAS from November 2nd to 6th 2009, in Leon, Mexico, ELIS PLZEN a. s. in cooperation with ELIS MEDICION S.A. de C.V. presented its products. The visitors expressed great interest in our ultrasonic flow meters FLOMIC, above all, the FL102X and the new generation of FL50X4. Nevertheless, the electromagnetic FLONET FN20XX.1 was accepted as a really good flow meter for its high quality and capability for various applications. ELIS has made his big appearance in the Mexican market, proving that its quality products have no frontiers and that they are making presence all over the world.

Battery-powered ultrasonic flow meters of the FLOMIC series supplied to a Mexican customer

Delivery in Mexico before dispatchingMexico is a large country where in many places the drinking water needs to be extracted from underground springs. One of these projects is in Puebla City where 185 underground springs supply water in the aggregate daily volume of 328,320m3. The water is pumped to water reservoirs from the springs, and it is distributed to different districts of the city. Some of districts lie at higher altitudes. The water consumption of individual sources (wells) needs to be measured and the daily consumption data sent via wireless network to the main distribution control centre of the water-supply company. In some locations, in particular, far and high-up locations, there is no electricity available. Since the water meters used cannot be powered from electrical sources, the selection is limited to mechanical or battery-powered electronic flow meters. This was an opportunity for ELIS PLZEN a. s. and their FLOMIC FL1024 ultrasonic water meters and the FLOMIC FL3005 flow meters. Considering the fact that the measurements were to be performed on piping of nominal diameter up to DN 800, the application of mechanical flow meters was excluded and the battery-powered ultrasonic flow meters proved to be the best solution.

FLONET FN20XX.1 induction flow meter for hydro-mining activities in Týčanský karst

The company ELIS PLZEN a. s. supplied with sponsoring support to "Speleoklub" at Týčany a FLONET FN2024.1 DN80 induction flow meter in a compact version provided with soft-rubber lining. Speleoklub Týčany does exploration and research of the Týčanský karst district where they remove cave silt using the local river water to gain access to new caves and elucidate their origin and formation. The exploration team use FLONET flow meter to measure the volume of the displaced water containing silt, small stones and deposited minerals. In three days of this hydro-mining activity, the volume of the solid substances of mainly limestone nature is up to eight cubic meters.

Did you ground the electromagnetic flow meters? Save money!

Electromagnetic flow meters are sensitive to electrical noise which is present in most of the piping systems. The fluid carries significant electric charge of static electricity in plastic piping systems. This is the reason why the electromagnetic flow meters must be grounded. The grounding rings or the grounding electrode are used for this purpose.

The grounding of the flow meter has to be made of the same material as measuring electrodes because of the same chemical resistance. The high-priced material (tantalum, platinum) is used for grounding of flow meter installed in piping system with aggressive fluids (acid e.g.).

The grounding rings are usually used for small flow meters up to DN25 because there is no possibility to place the grounding electrode into the area of sensor. Both technical solutions can be used for bigger dimensions of flow meters up to DN1200 but grounding rings require more consumption of expensive material. For this reason, it is preferable to use the grounding electrode, which has the same size in all dimensions. The smart solution can save you money.

The FLONET FN20XX.1 large dimension electromagnetic flow meter for water treatment plant

FLONET FN20XX.1 DN700Today it is possible to measure flows by using electromagnetic flow meter’s technology in piping systems. The monitoring of flow is notoriously necessary in large diameter pipes too. There is the possibility to monitor flows by using this kind of flow meters in pipes up to 1200mm in diameter. Electromagnetic flow meters provide excellent long term accuracy and stability and they can be used to measure almost all electrically conducting liquids. Pressure, density, temperature and viscosity have no influence on this type of flow meter. In this occasion, our customer uses it for water measurement in a metropolitan area in South Africa. The specifications of this flow meter were: 700 mm diameter, hard rubber lining, pressure 10 bar and accuracy of ±0.2%

Investment of ELIS PLZEN a. s. in Research & Development

In 2008, ELIS PLZEN a. s. purchased an old factory building in the Czech Republic, in the region of South Moravia. This region represents the production beginning of induction flowmeters in the Czech Republic. The old factory building was completely reconstructed in July 2010. The high tech machines and equipments were purchased at the same time and a new production process has started in junction with innovation changes. In addition, there was built an unique test rig inside the reconstructed building. The test rig GS1500/32 to 800 (DN32 to DN800, 0.05 to 1500 m3/h) will be used for R&D activities of the company. As a result, ELIS PLZEN a. s. has reached an amazing goal. The tradition and know–how of producing induction flowmeters are joined up with dynamism and development of 21st century.

Before After

Pulse output function of the FLOMIC FL50X4

How does the pulse output of the FLOMIC FL50X4 water and flow meter work? It is a really good question because the pulse output of ultrasonic water and flow meters provides the information about liquid volume and therefore it’s an important function of battery-powered ultrasonic water and flow meters FLOMIC FL50X4. These meters have two passive pulse outputs which evaluate volume flow through in positive and negative directions of flow. Passive output needs an external power supply because the outputs are not powered up by the water and flow meter. Every output needs own independent power supply. Output pulses have a rectangular shape and their width is 30ms. If we use 5V power supply then the pulses will have 5V value for positive flow direction but 0V for negative flow direction.

For more information please check the manual of the FLOMIC FL50X4, page 18
