Ultrasonic Transit time Flow Meter

Ultrasonic flow meters are commonly applied to measure the velocity of liquids that allow ultrasonic waves to pass, such as water, molten sulfur, cryogenic liquids, and chemicals. Transit time designs are also available to measure gas and vapor flow. 

Be careful because fluids that do not pass ultrasonic energy, such as many types of slurry, limit the penetration of ultrasonic waves into the fluid. In Doppler ultrasonic flowmeter, opaque fluids can limit ultrasonic wave penetration to near the pipe wall, which can degrade accuracy and/or cause the flowmeter to fail to measure. Transit time ultrasonic flowmeters can fail to operate when an opaque fluid weakens the ultrasonic wave to such an extent that the wave does not reach the receiver.

Transit Time flow meters must have a pair of transducers, each containing a piezo-electric crystal. One transducer transmits sound while the other acts as a receiver. Transit Time flow meters measure the time it takes for an ultrasonic signal transmitted from one sensor, to cross a pipe and be received by a second sensor. Upstream and downstream time measurements are compared. With no flow, the transit time would be equal in both directions. With flow, sound will travel faster in the direction of flow and slower against the flow. Because the ultrasonic signal must cross the pipe to a receiving transducer, the fluid must not contain a significant concentration of bubbles or solids. Otherwise the high frequency sound will be attenuated and too weak to traverse the pipe.

Which is a concern when we apply the ultrasonic flow meter be sure that the fluid can adequately conduct ultrasonic waves, because the flow meter will not measure when the ultrasonic waves cannot penetrate the flow stream between the transducers. Similarly, ultrasonic waves must be able to penetrate the fluid for Doppler flowm eters to operate accurately. When the fluid is relatively opaque and does not penetrate the fluid, Doppler flow meters tend to measure the velocity of the fluid at or near the pipe wall, which can cause significant measurement error and/or cause the flow meter to fail.

Thermal Mass Compress air and gas flow meters VA500

Flow sensor for compressed air and gas – VA 500 Contrary to the previously used bridge circuit the newly developed evaluation electronics of our flow sensor records all measured values digitally. This leads to a better accuracy also in case of large measuring spans of 1:1000. What are the advantages of our flow measuring technology? […]

Flow meters for compressed air and gas

Fow meters from CS Instruments work according to the calorimetric measuring principle. This means, while measuring the thermal mass flow or standard volume flow, no additional temperature and pressure compensation is necessary. The standard volume is a common volumetric unit used to compare gas quantities at different pressures and temperatures. In order to meet various […]
