The clamp-on flow meter is a flow meter that is very cheap and easy installation because it does not have to damage the pipe designed for applications where production should not be stopped, because the installation of flow meters is done with a puncture, cut and weld pipe. It is ideal for process measurement in applications, where users previously had not installed an in-line flow meter and for applications where large line sizes or exotic materials are required for in-line measurement technologies.
Clamp-on Ultrasonic flow meter use Transducers that clamped on to the outside of the pipe so it is not necessary to cut pipes or stop the flow for installation and there is no pressure loss. Clamp-on Ultrasonic flowmeters can measure various types of liquids such as potable water, river water, industrial water, agricultural water, wastewater, seawater, and pure water.
Ultrasonic Clamp-On Flow Meter can be applied to measure the fluid flow in all pipe sizes and types of materials like carbon steel, Stainless steel, HDPE, PVC and other. Clamp-on flow meter should be capable of maintaining accuracy in working in conditions where there are temperature fluctuations in the process and the surrounding environment.
Clamp-On Ultrasonic flow meter operates using transit time measurement. By measuring the time it takes a sonic signal to travel a known distance with the flow stream and another signal traveling against the flow stream, it determines the velocity of the fluid being measured. With the sonic properties of the fluid and the pipe material factored in, users get an extremely repeatable accuracy on the volumetric flow rate being measured. Because the transmitter can process the signal of one or two sensors, it ensures additional economy and the ability to compare or contrast two flow streams, if required. The product is ideal for users looking for a process measurement device that is easy to install and can maintain flow measurement for clean liquids.
Temporary applications are mainly offered using portable type meters and permanent types are mainly designed for fixed installations. Portable types generally have a memory log or data logging capability to record data and the types designed for permanent applications normally don’t have the recording or data logging capability. However certain types like the Sitelab SL1188 or SL1168 provide a toolbox for logging purposes and to aid in identifying some transitions or abnormal errors during abnormal flow conditions.
Kind Of Clamp-on ultrasonic Flowmeter
Flow Meter Ultrasonic Portable
A portable ultrasonic flow meter is a handheld battery operated portable ultrasonic flow meter. It is a versatile portable ultrasonic flow meter for flow metering of liquids such as raw water, chilled water, potable water, d. M. Water, oils, organic solvents etc. Using time proven ultrasonic transit time flow metering principle it achieves a flow metering for pipes ranging from 15 mm to 3000 mm. It is also an ideal instrument for energy audit requirements.
