Singer Valve, a manufacturer of control valves recently joined forces with McCrometer to introduce the first Single Point Insertion Electro-Magnetic flowmeter. The Singer Model 106-SPI-MV can be utilized with the metering valve as a standalone option or built into a 106-2SC-PCO pilot system to provide complete flow-based valve control. 

“The breakthrough lies in the accuracy of this flowmeter and immediate implementation,” says Mark Gimson, business development and marketing manager at Singer Valve. The SPI-MV has been flow profiled and tested in the McCrometer NIST traceable flow laboratory and is guaranteed accurate to the 2 percent of reading throughout the specified velocity range. As it has already been profiled for the valve body it works right out of the box. 

The insertion probe extends into the flow stream, in one of the valve inlet connections and protrudes into the valve, equivalent to one-eighth of the valve diameter size. The bullet nose profile eliminates clogging or buildup and as a single-piece design with no moving parts, the SPI-MV sensor contains nothing to wear or break. 

The unit can be installed on any of the Singer Valve models from 4- to 36-inch valve sizes. It can be installed on either side of the valve on the inlet connection and only requires three pipe diameters upstream clearance. The sensor is rated for continuous submergence and is removable. It only protrudes from the valve 4.6 to 6.3 inches and only requires 8- to 12-inch clearance for easy maintenance. It is supplied with a convertor that not only gives an LCD readout screen but also gives a 4-20 mA output along with four programmable digital outputs. 

Singer will be showing this product at ACE13 in Denver, Colo., June 9-13.
