Endress+Hauser Introduces Proline Prosonic Flow P 500 ultrasonic flow measuring system

Many process plants have difficulty finding ideal installation points for flow measurement devices due to requirements for long length of inlet run and undisturbed flows.
The Prosonic Flow P 500 measuring system addresses these and other issues with its FlowDC function.
The device requires only minimal straight inlet runs and it can be installed directly onto the exterior of the pipe, so there is no need to interrupt operations.
Planners and operators of process plants can stay flexible and install the Prosonic Flow P 500 in just about any location, independent of the pipeline design.
Ultrasonic flow measurement with clamp-on sensors has been used successfully in the process industries for decades.
In contrast to mechanical meters with high maintenance requirements, ultrasonic flowmeters have no moving parts.
This non-intrusive measuring method, with sensors mounted directly on the pipe exterior, enables safe measurement of corrosive, abrasive, and toxic fluids regardless of their properties, such as conductivity and pressure.
This makes Prosonic Flow P 500 ideal for monitoring and controlling processes in the chemical, petrochemical, oil and gas, and other industries.
Moreover, in the energy and power plant sector, clamp-on measuring technology provides a cost-effective solution with unbeatable advantages, for example when retrofitting ultrasonic sensors on very large pressure lines with diameters of up to 4 meters (13 feet).
