1.1 Flowmeter for volumetric filling machines BATCHFLUX 5500 C is the industrial standard for volumetric filling machines. Its zirconium oxide liner guarantees extreme long-term dimensional stability and therefore no change in repeatability of filling volumes over long periods of time. The BATCHFLUX 5500 C offers major improvements for the most commonly used sizes: DN10 and DN15. It has a better versatility of applications with improved performance in difficult applications like fibrous products, hot filling and CIP / SIP processes. An additional improvement is the further reduction of the...

1.2 Features 1.2.1 Innovative design Zirconium Oxide liner The measuring tube of the BATCHFLUX 5500 C consists of high-strength, temperature shock resistant zirconium oxide. This material is dimensionally extremely stable as it does not leak, creep or absorb any moisture and is vapour proof. Even with hot filling or after steam-cleaning the measuring accuracy and repeatability remain excellent over a long period of time. Repairs, replacements or recalibrations are not required leading to minimal downtime and maintenance. Measuring tube for an optimized flow profile The BATCHFLUX 5500 C...

1.2.3 Lightweight and compact design The BATCHFLUX 5500 C helps to reduce the costs of construction and operation. The BATCHFLUX 5500 C is the smallest and most lightweight electromagnetic flowmeter for batching and filling and allows for a more compact design of filling machines. Its low weight reduces the load on and weight of the filling machine. The power consumption of only 3 W results in less cost for cabling and power supply. 1.2.4 Quick and continuous data transmission All operating data for the BATCHFLUX 5500 C are preset at the factory. For changing the parameters and diagnostic...

1.3 Measuring principle An electrically conductive fluid flows inside an electrically insulated pipe through a magnetic field. This magnetic field is generated by a current, flowing through a pair of field coils. Inside of the fluid, a voltage U is generated: U=v*k*B*D in which: v = mean flow velocity k = factor correcting for geometry B = magnetic field strength D = inner diameter of flowmeter The signal voltage U is picked off by electrodes and is proportional to the mean flow velocity v and thus the flow rate Q. A signal converter is used to amplify the signal voltage, filter it and...

2 TECHNICAL DATA 2.2 Measurement accuracy Every electromagnetic flowmeter is calibrated by direct volume comparison. The wet calibration validates the performance of the flowmeter under reference conditions against accuracy limits. The accuracy limits of electromagnetic flowmeters are typically the result of the combined effect of linearity, zero point stability and calibration uncertainty. Reference conditions • Medium: water • Temperature: +5...35°C / +41...95°F • °perating pressure: 0.1...5 barg / 'I.5...72.5 psig • Inlet section: > 5 DN • Outlet section: > 2DN

2 TECHNICAL DATA 2.4 Counter Flanges The BATCHFLUX 5500 must be mounted between counter flanges (as shown in the following drawing], to ensure that the device works correctly. Note; flanges must be fully welded and surface roughness, grinded and polished ( roughness 0,8]. See for more information the 3A CCE 2007-2 Coordination Bulletin. The O-rings require periodic inspection and replacement. As the interval depends on process-specific variables, the length of the interval cannot be specified. The O-rings are not part of the manufacturer portfolio. For 3A applications, O-rings must conform...
