In this paper calibration methodology of the electromagnetic flow meter is discussed. The construction and operation principle of an electromagnetic flow meter is discussed here. Installation techniques of the electromagnetic flow meter are also discussed in this paper. The typical specification of the electromagnetic flow meter is listed in this paper. All possible causes for wrong reading and possible correction are also discussed in this paper. Complete calibration process flow is represented here.
