Magnetic flowmeter of molten metals


A magnetic flowmeter for fluid sodium, the inductor for which is in the form of an electromagnet that generates a low-frequency pulsed magnetic field, is described. The effect of external industrial-frequency interference is entirely eliminated and the influence of thermo-emf, eddy currents, etc. is substantially reduced. The design of the flowmeter, its technical characteristics, and a testing technique are considered.
