Watson-Marlow introduces KROHNE flowmeter to safeguard accuracy of fluid flow

Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Solutions (WMFTS) today announces the company now offers the KROHNE FLEXMAG 4050 C® electromagnetic flowmeter for biopharmaceutical customers. As a highly accurate and reliable flow measuring system that seamlessly integrates with other WMFTS products, it reinforces the company’s position as a provider of total-solution packages for customers utilising fluid path processes.

Superior accuracy with the electromagnetic flowmeter

With the KROHNE FLEXMAG 4050 C electromagnetic flowmeter, WMFTS customers can verify the accurate flow conditions of compatible Watson-Marlow pumps. The KROHNE flowmeter is the first single-use electromagnetic flowmeter on the market.

Unlike other single-use flowmeter technologies, such as those which use ultrasonic technology, the KROHNE flowmeter provides accurate readings independent of pressure, temperature and viscosity of the fluid. The KROHNE flowmeter provides a completely stable, direct and accurate fluid flow measurement that does not drift over time.

With a simple exchange between two different flow tube sizes, the flow measurement system can accommodate two different flow ranges with no need to recalibrate. The transmitter and flow tube are factory calibrated and do not require further adjustment on site.

“Because of its superior accuracy and repeatability, the KROHNE flowmeter is a world class product. It joins many carefully selected products in our portfolio that are compatible with Watson-Marlow pumps. With the KROHNE flowmeter, we are further able to support customers looking for a total solutions package.”

Tony Barrass, Pumps and Drives Portfolio Manager at Watson-Marlow

A customisable solution for bioprocessing

Creating a sterile fluid path is crucial in the biopharmaceutical industry. The flowmeter features a disposable, biocompatible and gamma stable flow tube that easily integrates into customised single-use assemblies. The FLEXMAG 4050 C flow tubes are manufactured at an ISO 13485 certified site, and production takes place in an ISO Class 7 cleanroom environment. Fluid contact materials are made from biocompatible material. The flow tube is gamma stable up to 50 kGy with fluid contact materials made from biocompatible material.

Part of the Watson-Marlow compatible accessory range, the KROHNE flowmeter is exclusively available as a package with the following Watson-Marlow pumps and/or WMArchitect single-use solutions:

  • PROFINET® and EtherNet/IP™ 500, 600 and 700 series Watson-Marlow process pumps
  • WMArchitect single-use solutions

This new offering from Watson-Marlow is ideal for customers in the life sciences or biopharmaceutical industry involved in a range of bioprocessing applications, including filtration processes, chromatography, and buffer or media preparation.
