New Ultrasonic Flow Meter from Crydom
Crydom Magnetics Ltd launches a non-invasive,
low-cost ultrasonic flow meter, offering significant
performance and cost advantages over traditional
electromechanical and electromagnetic systems.
The new Flowsonic flow meter uses high frequency ultrasound
to measure fluid flow rates using the "time-of-flight" principle.
The benefit of ultrasound is that there are no moving parts or
obstructions 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. This saves capital costs in otherwise installing
additional flow meters / flow lines for different fluids.
Maximum fluid temperature is 85oC 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 ideal for the beverage and food processing industry.
Applications where accurate dispensing of a range of fluids are
required, such as brewing, vending and chemical dosing, benefit
from this technology.
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
