Electromagnetic flow meters (or ‘magmeters’) are a popular and highly accurate flow measurement option for wastewater applications that require a low maintenance solution without pressure drop.
As covered in BS/ISO 6817, electromagnetic flow meters operate on the principle of Faraday’s Law, which states that the voltage induced across any conductor as it moves at right angles through a magnetic field is proportional to the velocity of that conductor.
Electromagnetic flow meters are often labelled a “fit and forget” solution due to their low maintenance requirements, though correct and MCERTS qualified installation is essential for their correct working. While we do recommend occasional servicing to ensure it is working to optimum standards, the lack of moving parts makes this type of flow meter a robust and easy-to-maintain option.
Accurate & reliable data
SIRIS flow meters carry MCERTS accreditation so you can be confident that the data provided is reliable and accurate and will provide accurate and reliable long-term flow measurement.
Our flow meters are designed to meet with relevant regulatory discharge and MCERTS requirements.
All SIRIS products are compatible with our web-based data recording software, which allows quick and easy access to your data at any time – from any location.
Design & installation
We pride ourselves in offering a bespoke service to all of our clients. Our design and installation process ensures we provide you with a cost-effective solution tailored to suit your site’s individual requirements.

Quote At this stage our wastewater management experts will provide a tailored quote for your system. For some sites we can do this using photographs, however for larger or more complicated sites we will arrange to visit you and assess it in person. If MCERTS is required we will ensure we develop a system that is fully compliant.
Build Our team will assemble your bespoke system at our dedicated facility. We’ll also pre-calibrate any equipment that can be commissioned off-site.
Delivery and installation We will arrange for your equipment to be delivered directly to site and liaise with your chosen contractor to advise on installation requirements. Depending on the project, we may also attend site to assist with the installation process.
Calibration Our specialist engineers will attend site to commission your equipment and check that it’s working correctly. We’ll also go through your new system with you and answer any questions you have. Once we’ve completed the calibration we will be able to issue you with a CalCert which allows you to prove your site is fully compliant to auditors.
Aftercare Our team is always on hand to support with any queries or teething problems you may be experiencing. For most sites we also recommend a bi-annual servicing package to ensure your equipment continues to function correctly.
