Magnetite Meter - Magnetite detection in pipes - Pipe occlusion estimation

Diverse Technologies MF500M+

Diverse-Technologies MP500M

The Diverse MF500M+ hand held, battery operated Magnetite Meter uses a novel magnetic force probe. This instrument may be used to determine the amount of magnetite in cooling pipes.

The magnetic detector is housed in a separate stainless steel hand held case providing maximum protection and magnetic transparency. The processor based meter has a user friendly menu driven interface to allow simple operation. The instrument can be used to display raw data from the sensor, as well as, estimating the amount of magnetite in a given (non-magentic) pipe. Auto zero can be requested at any time with the touch of a single button. Using a measurement rote, either magnetite thickness or sector fill can be estimated. Measurements of magnetite levels are displayed on the unit and can be stored in its internal memory for later recall. Audible confirmation of measurements and zeroing facilitates use in restrictive environments.

Supplied with a calibration sample letting the user modify pipe occlusion calibration. The user can modify the pipe occlusion calibration for different pipe wall thickness or magnetite packing density. Settings are stored at power off but the instrument has the facility to revert to the factory calibration.

Reading Range: 0 - 2047 force units
Occlusion: 0 - 100%
Technique: Uses net magnetic force to identify magnetite and magnetic material
Accuracy: Reading Range: 0 - 2047 force units. These are arbitrary units, and each instrument needs to be calibrated to the specific pipe geometry and magnetite samples.
Zero: Can be zeroed at any time - measurement technique requires unit to be zeroed in the measurement orientation.
Probe Orientation: Measurement independent of probe orientation provided it is zeroed first in that orientation.
Gravity: Zero removes gravity offset
Display: 4 lines of 16 characters shows value and user interface
Functions: Raw force, occlusion for solid and broken magnetite
Repeatability: +/- 5%, assuming sample is deguassed
Probe Size: 0.8" x 1.0" (20mm x 25mm), 6" (150mm) long
Detection: Detects the magnetic force between the sensing magnet and the magnetite. The signal is offset by an estimate of the gravitational force.
Storage: Maximum of 20 records can be stored
Probe Cable Length: 1.5m typical
Calibration: Calibration is indicative only. Unit is supplied with a calibration sample so that the instrument functionality can be verified.
Power Supply: 4 standard AA cells, typical lifetime is 12 months. Continuous use 30 hours.
Instrument Size: 6.5" x 4.0" x 2.0" (165mm x 100mm x 50mm)
Weight in Case: 2.9 lbs. (1.3 kg)
Operating Temp.: 50°F - 104°F (10°C - 40°C)
Storage Temp.: 32°F - 176°F (0°C - 80°C)
Humidity: 0 - 90% non-condensing
Display Update Rate: 0.3 seconds
Warranty: 1 year warranty
