Electromagnetic meters

Heat Meter Accuracy Testing, published by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy in November 2016, suggests that electromagnetic meters:

...use Faraday’s Law of Electromagnetic Induction to determine the flow of liquid in a pipe. In a magnetic flow meter, a magnetic field is generated and channeled into the liquid flowing through the pipe. Following Faraday’s Law, flow of a conductive liquid through the magnetic field will cause a voltage signal to be sensed by electrodes located on the flow tube walls. When the fluid moves faster, more voltage is generated. Faraday’s Law states that the voltage generated is proportional to the movement of the flowing liquid. The electronic transmitter processes the voltage signal to determine liquid flow.
