VorTek Instruments has released its new SonoPro Portable clamp-on ultrasonic flowmeter.
According to Vortek, the flowmeter offers high-accuracy transit-time ultrasonic technology to deliver accurate and reliable flow metering in a portable design.
The design incorporates matched precision transducers and signal processing circuitry to accurately measure the flow of most liquids over a wide range of velocities. Clamp-on transducers create no wear, zero pressure loss, and do not require process interruptions to install them since they are attached to the outside of the pipe.
With the addition of external temperature inputs, the SonoPro Portable can provide a reliable energy or mass flow measurement (BTU).
SonoConfig Instrument Interface Software works in conjunction with the flowmeter to provide valuable setup, diagnostic and data logging tools.
This is available for free download and works on most Android phones and tablets. It can also be provided preloaded on a tablet from VorTek Instruments.
Portable ultrasonic flow metering requires knowing the thickness of the pipe for which the transducers are mounted.
VorTek Instruments’ MT160 ultrasonic thickness gauge is a compact handheld device that can measure the thickness of various materials with a high degree of accuracy.
This makes the MT160 a useful companion to the SonoPro Portable flowmeter.
