Meter Xchange

FMV Group logo


Where repairing an existing meter is not possible or has not worked and a replacement is either too expensive or creates too much risk FMV has another option for our clients.

The Meter Xchange involves removing an EM meter jacket and all the internal electronics, leaving a single flow tube with a clean surface. Flowlee are able to install either a mains powered permanent or battery powered portable ultrasonic flowmeter.


The Meter Xchange option allows the use of existing assets and chambers removing a high percentage of the cost involved in replacing end of life meters.

A Meter Xchange can be completed in nearly all applications, we require an existing end of life meter, and a chamber large enough to operate safely in.

For applications where you are unable to isolate the plant or the flow to remove the in-situ electromagnetic flowmeter

FMV engineers will remove the electromagnetic meters outer jacket and external coils, once removed a spool piece is exposed leaving an excellent surface for Ultrasonic transducers to be installed.

No cutting is involved no hot work permits are required all works are non-intrusive and completed on the outer plastic covering the flow tube section of pipe.
