Endress+Hauser began with electromagnetic flowmeters when it bought Flowtec, based in Bern, Switzerland in 1977. The company relocated to Reinach and from then on was called Flowtec AG. With just three employees, the company began its activities in a former military barracks. Today E+H Flowtec AG, the group's centre of competence for flow measurement technology, employs more than 1,000 people world-wide.

Over 500,000 electromagnetic flowmeters have been sold in the past seven years alone. In 1991 the company opened a production site in Cernay (France) where today the majority of the electromagnetic flowmeters are produced. The factory has been expanded several times to its present floor space of roughly 16,500 square metres, making it the world’s biggest production facility for electromagnetic flowmeters.

In the industrial environment electromagnetic flowmeters are today used primarily in water management, in the process industry, pharmaceuticals and in the food industry. The robust construction permits their use under the harshest environmental conditions: electromagnetic flowmeters are even frequently found in the mining industry.

Typical measuring tasks include recording and monitoring continual flow rates, filling and dosing applications as well as use in custody transfer. A large number of aqueous-based fluids can be measured with electromagnetic flowmeters: water, wastewater, sludges, pulps, pastes, acids, alkali, juices, fruit mashes etc.
