Description
Ultrasonic  Flowmeter is permanent installation in nearly any liquid flow metering application - especially in the industrial environment. Its non-intrusive measurement technology ensures a precise bi-directional, highly dynamic flow measurement over a wide turndown ratio. 

Enclosed in a robust metal field housing, the flow meter is completely water-tight and designed for usage in rough environments. As the transducers are mounted on the outside of  the pipe wall in rugged VARIOFIX mounting fixtures, the system does not suffer from wear and tear or clogging, can't be a risk for leaks and will not cause any pressure drops inside the pipe.

Benefits:
  • Non-intrusive - Installation without process interruption or production stop
  • Virtually maintenance free due to permanent coupling pads and and rugged mounting fixtures
  • Low installation and operation costs (independent of pipe pressure and size)
  • Highly accurate, reliable and stable measuring results even under difficult conditions
  • Versatile electrical inputs and outputs for the optimal adaptation to the individual application needs
  • Ideal solution for the measurement of aggressive, corrosive or toxic media in hazardous areas ( FM Class I, Div. II / ATEX / IECEx Zone 2 version available)
  • Exhaustive internal database with complete parameter set of a variety pipe materials and media
  • Ideal solution for permanent thermal energy / BTU metering
  • Volumetric and mass flow measurement at up to 400°C hot pipes by using the patented WaveInjector Solution

Detailed Applications:

Chemical industry
  • Measurement of nearly any liquid
  • corrosive or toxic media (acids, bases)
  • non-conductive media
  • highly viscous media
  • media containing fibers or solid particles, long-chained polymers and much more
  • Measurement of high temperature liquids, such as heat transfer media (water/glycol at 250°C) and thermal oils (up to 400°C)

Petrochemical industry
  • Measurement of basic materials as well as intermediate and final products
  • Measuring at high temperatures, for example tar, bitumen, quench liquids

Power plants
  • Measurement of the cooling water, boiler feed water, condensate and heat circuits
  • Measurement of fuel lines
