Rugged Mc Propeller M0300 Flow Meter Delivers High Accuracy for Irrigation
With its leading-edge propeller flow sensing design and rugged packaging, the Mc® Propeller flow meter from McCrometer sets the industry standard for liquid flow measurement performance, ease-of-use and value in agricultural, horticulture, turf and other irrigation applications requiring high volume water use.
With the demand and the cost for water continuously rising, the need for farmers, growers, facility managers and other high volume users to manage water wisely has never been more important. Federal and state regulatory requirements also continue to proliferate, demanding a stricter accountability for water use. The Mc Propeller Model M0300 flow meter is a bolt-on saddle type instrument that provides an instantaneous indication and totalization of liquid flow without electrical power. The flow range is 1-15 FPS, under pressures up to 150 psi and a continuous operation temperature up to 160°F maximum. Measurement accuracy is +2% of rate and repeatability is +0.25% in pipes from 4 to 96 inches.
The Mc Propeller M0300’s bolt-on configuration makes it easy to install, requiring only 5 pipe diameters upstream and 1 pipe diameter downstream. Its compact space-saver design makes it ideal for retrofit applications. Unlike traditional propeller meters, it features a flexible drive-train and sealed ball bearings, making it easier to service in the field and lowering maintenance costs.
The Ultra Mag is an advanced, leading-edge electromagnetic flow meter. The field-proven flow meter was designed for the specific needs of the industrial and water & wastewater industries. The unit’s unique NSF-approved UltraLiner™ provides superior electrical insulation as well as excellent protection against corrosion and abrasion. The Ultra Mag sets a new standard for performance, ease-of-use and value.
It is designed specifically for conductive liquids, slurries and sludge. It uses a non-intrusive measurement element. Debris / solids will not clog the line. The Ultra Mag is excellent in harsh environments requiring minimal maintenance. It’s ideal in water well production, pump stations, industrial / municipal water & wastewater and more. The UltraMag can be ordered with custom lay lengths to fit space requirements. Optional end connections include ANSI, DIN, JIS, smooth, and grooved ends. The 4-12” meters feature a new compact design with integral grounding electrodes that eliminate the need for grounding rings. The installation is simplified and the meter is easier to handle. Mag meters provide worry-free flow measurement where high accuracy over a wide flow range is critical.
Unlike mechanical flow meters, there are no moving parts. Measurement is unaffected by changes in fluid density and viscosity. The UltraMag is an exceptionally stable and reliable flow meter. As always, all of McCrometer’s flow meters are individually calibrated in our world-class NIST traceable calibration facilities.
The Water Specialties Propeller Meter
The Water Specialties Propeller Meter is the best choice for measuring clean water flows in municipal and industrial applications. The meter is engineered to deliver superior performance, low maintenance and unsurpassed durability. Meter materials and performance meet or exceed AWWA standard C704/92. Water Specialties Propeller Meters are manufactured using precise techniques and high quality materials. For example, long-life ceramic thrust bearings and a cast bronze gearbox produce the best propeller meter available. Measurement accuracy is +/- 2% of reading. The meter accommodates flow ranges from 35 GPM to 200,000 GPM. The Water Specialties Propeller Meter can be installed vertically, horizontally or inclined, with sizes ranging from 2″ to 120″.

Mc Propeller Meter and the FS100 Flow Straightener
Farmers, irrigation dealers and water district engineers will find the McCrometer Mc Propeller Meter and the FS100 Flow Straightener are the ideal solution for water metering programs in agriculture and turf irrigation. The Mc Propeller’s advanced design delivers highly accurate liquid flow measurement in a rugged space-saving design that reduces installation costs, offers long-life and requires minimal maintenance. The FS100 Flow Straightener provides breakthrough flow straightening technology that virtually eliminates the upstream / downstream straight pipe runs typically required in existing or new flow meter applications. Requiring only 1.5 straight pipe diameters upstream and 0-0.5 downstream, the FS100 Flow Straightener when installed with the McPropeller slashes typical installation piping and labor costs by more than 50 percent, which makes it the right fit in both retrofit and brand new installations.
SPI Mag Insertion Flow Meter
The SPI Mag Insertion Flow Meter provides a highly cost-effective solution for the accurate measurement of liquid flow in closed conduit, pressurized pipe applications. Unlike conventional magnetic meters, the SPI Mag’s cost is independent of pipe size. Velocity and pipe diameter information are utilized by the SPI Mag to determine flow over wide flow ranges with a high degree of accuracy.
The SPI Mag reliably measures flow in water and wastewater as well as any type of industrial flow processes involving conductive fluids such as potable water, slurries, sludge, cooling water, and pulp stock.
The FPI Mag™
The FPI Mag™ manufactured by McCrometer, is an electromagnetic flow meter designed to meet the challenging needs of municipal and industrial facilities which require a mag meter to measure water flow in closed pipes. The unique design of the FPI Mag meter allows for quick, simple installation across a wide range of applications: it was engineered specifically for facilities that need to install a meter without shutting down the water line, or for facilities installing new pipes and looking to mitigate the high cost of installing a full-pipe meter.
Simple Installation: The FPI Mag™ manufactured by McCrometer, is an electromagnetic flow meter designed to meet the challenging needs of municipal and industrial facilities which require a mag meter to measure water flow in closed pipes. The unique design of the FPI Mag meter allows for quick, simple installation across a wide range of applications: it was engineered specifically for facilities that need to install a meter without shutting down the water line, or for facilities installing new pipes and looking to mitigate the high cost of installing a full-pipe meter.
Lower Costs: The FPI Mag is the only meter of its kind that eliminates the need for heavy equipment and excessive manpower necessary to support installation. Facilities save up to 45% on installation and total cost of ownership
Unmatched Accuracy: The unique streamlined water flow sensor features multiple electrode pairs along the outside of the sensor. The electrodes are positioned so each pair measures a cross-sectional area. This multi-electrode sensing provides full profile accuracy rivaling a full-bore mag. The sensor’s body is also hermetically sealed and protected by NSF certified 3M fusion-bonded epoxy coating making this an ideal mag meter for drinking water.
Versatile and Robust: The FPI Mag is extremely versatile, allowing for hot tap Installation when needed, and is today’s mag meter of choice for capital or maintenance projects, retrofits and sites never metered before. Its robust construction means there are no moving parts and nothing to wear or break, and its minimal straight line requirements allow use of the FPI Mag in piping configurations where space is tight and bends or elbows are close.
Reverse Flow: In some systems there is a need to measure reverse flow or bi-directional flow (forward and reverse totalized flow). No matter whether you are measuring forward, reverse or bi-directional water flow, choosing the flow meter best suited for the application will result in improved accuracy, repeatability, lower maintenance costs and will promote a long life for the flow meter.
