Magnetic flowmeters meet individual measuring challenges

MIS, MIK, MIM - Mag Flowmeters

Always float on top

Kobold’s M-series level switch comprising a float that slides up and down with the liquid, along a guide tube.

Viscosity-Compensated Plastic Flowmeter and Switch for liquids

Kobold’s VKP plastic flowmeters that operate on a special suspended float principle with cylindrical measuring tube and spring-loaded float with orifice.


Kobold’s flowmeter model DOT, perfectly suited to measure the flow of low viscous liquids.

Optimising production line maintenance for gas burners

Whenever flow of gases needs to be adjusted or monitored, KOBOLD's model UTS, a practical and affordable variable area flowmeter for monitoring gas burners. This compact measuring instrument can be placed at various locations, precisely where required.  Recently the company was tasked with optimising gas burner production line monitoring in order to achieve a ‘No Product Rejection’ status.

Economical magnetic-inductive flowmeters

Kobold’s has on offer the Kobold MIK, a compact, magnetic-inductive flowmeter, combining a large measuring range, from at 0.01 l/min and currently to 700 l/min, and six different measuring tube sizes, from G ½ male to G 2 ¾ male; perfect for users with smaller to medium-sized measuring ranges.

Magnetic Inductive Flowmeter

Operated by electromagnetic measurement, a voltage is induced in a conductor moving through a magnetic field.

MINI Oval Wheel Flowmeter

With an all stainless steel body and temperature measurement for fuel consumption, the Kobold DOE offers different pulse output options including one to measure pulsating flow from, for example, peristaltic pumps.

3 Oval Wheel Flowmeters for Multiple Applications

INSTROTECH, a Comtest Group Company, has on offer 3 Kobold oval wheel flowmeters, that give precise flow measurement for all viscous, non-abrasive clean liquids, and can be used in a number of diverse applications, such as measurement of fuel consumption for small aircraft, motorboats, and mobile power generators. Applicable media are all viscous, non-abrasive clean liquids, like petroleum and other fuels (including diesel), oil and grease, ink and pastes, and chemicals.

Bitumen measurement under difficult conditions

A product application case history
The Task: The special challenge of this application was to determine the exact temperature of heat-tracing, and to be adapted to the respective type of bitumen product used. The meters had to be robust and temperature-stable, and their accuracy should be unaffected by portable custody transfer devices.
