Lorentz force velocimetry (LFV) is a noncontact electromagnetic flow measurement technique for liquid metals that is currently used in fundamental research and metallurgy. Up to now, the application of LFV was limited to the narrow class of liquids whose electrical conductivity is of the order 106 S/m. Here, we demonstrate that LFV can be applied to liquids with conductivities up to six orders of magnitude smaller than in liquid metals. We further argue that this range can be extended to 10−3 S/m under industrial and to 10−6 S/m under laboratory conditions making LFV applicable to most liquids of practical interest.
