Flowing Refractometer for Feed Water State Control in the Second Loop of Nuclear Reactor

The necessity to control the feed water state in the second loop of a nuclear power plant nuclear reactor is justified. The different methods of the state control of flowing water in the pipeline are



Immersed transient eddy current flow metering: a calibration-free velocity measurement technique for liquid metals

Eddy current flow meters are widely used for measuring the flow velocity of electrically conducting fluids. Since the flow induced perturbations of a magnetic field depend both on the geometry and

Eddy current flowmeter for sodium flow

The eddy current flowmeter for liquid metal passing through the cylindrical channel is studied experimentally and numerically. The alternating magnetic field is created by an annular-shape coil and

A contactless method for velocity reconstruction in electrically conducting fluids

A contactless method for three-dimensional velocity reconstruction in electrically conducting fluids is presented. The method is based on the fact that an additional magnetic field is induced if the

Optimised noncontact electromagnetic flowmeter

An optimisation design procedure for electromagnetic flowmeters with segmental electrodes is described. The method is applied to a flowmeter with a magnetic field based on a commercial design. The

Analysis of eddy-current flowmeters

Coils can induce and detect eddy current in nearby conductors. If the conductor is moving, the eddy currents are carried along with it slightly, and properly designed coils can measure the velocity

Flowmetering by a motion-induced magnetic field

A two-dimensional model of an `induced-magnetic field' flowmeter is described. A thin capsule, containing field- and search-coil wires, is embedded in the fluid, the wires being arranged for zero

Magnetic flowmeter of molten metals

A magnetic flowmeter for fluid sodium, the inductor for which is in the form of an electromagnet that generates a low-frequency pulsed magnetic field, is described. The effect of external
