Micronics Flow Meter Installation Guidelines

To optimise the performance of your Micronics flow meter, ensure it is installed in an easily accessible location with minimal vibration. Then certify the pipe is clean and has the recommended straight lengths upstream and downstream, and matches the flow meter’s connection size. Following this securely mount the flow meter, ensuring it’s level making sure to adhere to any specific requirements detailed in the product documentation, such as flow direction, calibration, or special settings. Following these guidelines will help you to gain accurate and efficient measurement of your fluid flow.

How to Install a Flow Switch & Flow Meter

  1.  Review the Documentation: Start by reading the installation manuals for both the flow switch and the flow meter provided by Micronics. These documents contain crucial details about each device, including installation requirements, specifications, and safety guidelines.
  2.  Choose the Installation Sites: Identify suitable locations for both the flow meter and the flow switch within your system. Both devices should be placed in straight sections of piping, free from disturbances caused by valves, bends, or fittings. This placement ensures accurate flow measurement and reliable operation of the flow switch.
  3.  Prepare the Site: Before installation, ensure the pipeline sections where the devices will be installed are clean and free of debris. The pipes should match the size and material requirements specified for each device to ensure compatibility and optimal performance.
  4. Install the Flow Meter: Mount the flow meter in the pipeline following Micronics’ guidelines. Ensure that it is installed according to the flow direction indicated on the meter and that it is securely fastened to prevent any movement or vibration during operation.
  5.  Install the Flow Switch: Install the flow switch in close proximity to the flow meter to effectively monitor the flow that the meter is measuring. Follow the orientation and mounting instructions closely, and make sure the flow direction on the switch aligns with the system’s flow direction.
  6.  Connect Electrical Wiring: Properly wire both the flow switch and the flow meter to your control system. Adhere to the wiring diagrams provided by Micronics, making sure all connections are secure and correctly configured to allow accurate signaling and measurement.
  7.  System Testing: After installation, conduct a thorough test of the system. This should include running the system at various flow rates to check the operational integrity and accuracy of both the flow meter and the flow switch. Adjust any settings if necessary to ensure that both devices respond appropriately to the flow conditions.
  8.  Schedule Regular Maintenance: Set up a maintenance schedule based on Micronics’ recommendations to maintain the accuracy and reliability of both the flow meter and the flow switch. Regular maintenance can help prevent faults and extend the lifespan of the devices.
  9.  Seek Assistance if Needed: If you encounter any issues during the installation, or if you require further technical support, don’t hesitate to contact Micronics. We can offer expert advice on installing your flow meters to ensure that everything is set up correctly.
