Contactless electromagnetic phase-shift flowmeter for liquid metals
Priede, J.; Buchenau, D.; Gerbeth, G.;
We present a concept and test results of an induction flowmeter for liquid metals.
The flow rate is determined by applying a weak AC magnetic field to a liquid metal flow and measuring the flow-induced phase disturbance in the external electromagnetic field. The phase disturbance is found to be more robust than that of the amplitude used in conventional AC flowmeters. The basic characteristics of this type of flowmeter are analysed using simple theoretical models where the flow is approximated by a solid body motion. Design of such a flowmeter is presented and its test results reported.
