What is ultrasonic flow meter with clamp-on transducer?

Clamp-on ultrasonic flow meters does not require drilling holes in the pipe. They are non-invasive and easy to install and remove. An ultrasonic flow meter with clamped on transducers should be selected based on the flow rate range, operating pressure, fluid temperature, pipe material, and pipe size.

What is ultrasonic flow meter ?

Ultrasonic flow meters measure fluid velocity using ultrasound to calculate volume flow. Flow meters use ultrasonic transducers to measure the average velocity of an emitted ultrasound beam, either by averaging the difference in measured transit time between ultrasound pulses propagating into and against the flow direction, or by measuring the Doppler effect's frequency shift. In addition to the acoustic properties of the fluid, ultrasonic flow meters are affected by temperature, density, viscosity, and suspended particulates. Unlike mechanical flow meters, they don't use moving parts, so they're cheap to use and maintain.
Silver Automation Instruments sell ultrasonic flow meter with clamp on transducers is mainly for clean water flow measurement.

Ultrasonic flow meters with clamp-on transducers have these advantages:

There are several advantages to ultrasonic flow meters with clamp-on probes, especially in industries that need to measure flow rates in pipes and conduits.
  • Non-intrusive ultrasonic flow measurement: Clamp-on transducers are installed on the outside of pipes and conduits to allow for non-intrusive flow measurements. Consequently, downtime and maintenance costs are reduced because the pipe does not need to be cut into or interrupted.
  • A clamp-on transducer is simple to install and does not disrupt the existing piping system. As a result of the ease of handling transducers, maintenance is also easier.
  • Non-intrusive installation and easy maintenance make clamp-on ultrasonic flow meters cost-effective in both initial setup and ongoing operating costs.
  • No Pressure Drop: Clamp-on transducers don't penetrate the pipe, so they don't cause pressure drops, ensuring that system flow characteristics are not compromised.
  • Repeatable and Accurate Measurements: Ultrasonic clamp-on flow meters provide accurate and repeatable measurements. The accuracy and precision of the measurements are enhanced by advanced signal processing algorithms.
  • Variable transducer positioning: Transducers can be positioned at various points along the pipe, allowing measurement of flow rates at different points and accurately accounting for flow variations.
  • Flow Disturbance is Minimal: Clip-on transducers feature non-contact technology that ensures minimal flow disturbances, which is particularly important in applications where flow must be kept uninterrupted.
  • Ultrasonic flow meters with clamp-on transducers are capable of real-time monitoring and data logging. Flow data can be accessed immediately, which aids in process control, optimization, and troubleshooting.
  • Ultrasonic flow meters with clamp-on transducers can often be monitored remotely and integrated into larger control and monitoring systems, providing centralized data collection and analysis.
  • No contact with the process fluid: Since the transducers are clamped on the outside of the pipe, there is no chance of contamination or damage.
  • Accordingly, ultrasonic flow meters with clamp-on transducers are reliable, non-intrusive, cost-effective, and versatile solutions for measuring flow rates.
