The AquaProbe electromagnetic insertion flowmeter is Checking the Code Number Fig. designed for measurement of the velocity of water. The flowmeter, available in four standard lengths, can be installed in any pipeline of internal diameter from 200mm (8in). to 8000mm (360in), through a small tapping. The AquaProbe has been designed for use in survey applications such as leakage monitoring and network analysis and in permanent locations where cost or space limitations preclude the use of conventional closed pipe meters.
