UltraLiner™ Technology Provides Protection and Electrical Insulation

Developed in partnership with 3M, UltraLiner is the latest technology in the development of liners for electromagnetic meters. This unique process creates a fusion bonded epoxy liner applied via the fluidized bed method. The result is a highly protective coating with non-conductive properties. The UltraLiner provides superior electrical insulation as well as excellent protection against corrosion and abrasion.

Innovative Process

McCrometer's fluidized bed process creates a powder that fuses with hot metal through a reaction in the epoxy causing it to liquefy, encapsulate and fuse with the metal on the part. The epoxy heat provides a bond with the metal that resists disbonding in abrasive, corrosive environments.

Added Advantages of UltraLiner

  • A liner that also acts as an electric insulator
  • Greater abrasion resistance than hard rubber coatings
  • Will not collapse or delaminate when used on suction lines like Teflon® liners can
  • Excellent protection against abrasion, corrosion, and wear
  • Can be applied to small areas and parts in varying thicknesses
  • Non-conductive to eliminate stray currents

Testing Results

McCrometer implements stringent testing methods such as:

  • Magnetic pull off and Ultrasonic coating thickness testing
  • Wet Sponge 100 volt per mil spark testing to check for holidays or pinholes in the coating
  • Exposing the liner to commonly used industrial solvents

Environmentally Safe

  • No unpleasant fumes released in the process
  • No VOCs are released into the atmosphere
  • NSF (National Sanitation Foundation) approved for potable water
