Ultrasonic flow meter

Crydom Magnetics has launched a non-invasive ultrasonic flow meter that measures fluid flow rates using the ‘time-of-flight’ principle.

Crydom Magnetics has launched a non-invasive ultrasonic flow meter that measures fluid flow rates using the ‘time-of-flight’ principle.

The benefit of using an ultrasound device is that no moving parts or obstructions are placed in the fluid flow, so they cannot clog or jam due to contaminants in the flow lines. Traditional turbine based flow meters can restrict fluid flow and do not resist solids well – causing frequent failures in some applications.

Each Crydom Flowsonic flow meter is 100% wet tested and calibrated. Once installed, the flow meter automatically compensates for varying fluid temperature and viscosity, enabling accurate flow rate measurements of differing fluids passing through same flow lines.

Maximum fluid temperature is 85 degrees C and accuracy is guaranteed at 3%, with repeatability better than 1%. Higher accuracy and temperature units are available.

The CE marked devices use WRAS approved materials, making them suitable for the beverage and food processing industry.

Signal output options are analogue or pulse and the unit requires a 7 to 15VDC supply to operate. Thread size is 3/8ths BSP and John Guest fittings are optional.

The Flowsonic flow meters are available ex stock from Crydom’s UK factory.
