Reasons to Choose an Ultrasonic Clamp-On Flow Meter

The Dynasonics® TFX-5000 Ultrasonic Clamp-On Flow Meter by Badger Meter is an award-winning solution providing accurate flow measurement for a multitude of applications. These ultrasonic meters monitor flow velocity through ultrasound waves and are available in both transit time and Doppler technology choices. Let’s explore a few reasons why these flow meters are worth considering.

Temporary installation and lack of service interruption. Ultrasonic clamp-on flow meters have no need for permanent assembly. They are frequently used as a temporary means of testing the accuracy of other meters or of testing the flow of other pipes. Without the need to disrupt operation or shut down systems, the meter clamps onto the outside of the pipe. That means people can mount an ultrasonic flow meter in less than an hour and automatically begin to get reliable readings as activities continue as scheduled.

A lack of moving parts and no liquid contact. The clamp-on design is a major perk of ultrasonic meters. Since they are attached to the exterior of the pipe, internal liquid contact is not a risk. In conditions where the liquid cannot be exposed, such as caustic liquids, raw water, for instance, this is highly helpful. Ultrasonic clamp-on meters are equipped via ultrasonic signals to calculate the velocity of a fluid flowing through a pipe. No rotating parts are required to produce the ultrasound, resulting in reduced maintenance and low ownership costs.
