Permanent magnet flowmeters are used to measure flow in sodium cooled power plants both in the core and in plant piping. In this paper the cross-correlation technique and in particular the transfer function method is used to process the flow turbulence signals from electrodes spaced along the pipe in the vicinity of the magnetic field. Results from a loop flowmeter the EBR-II secondary flowmeter and a 400 mm diameter flowmeter will be presented.
