Flowhire’s great range of non-invasive clamp-on flow meters represents the UK’s top flow metering technology. With no need to break into the pipe or interrupt the process, ultrasonic flow meter hire from Flowhire represents the easiest and quickest way to measure flow within filled pipes. Your choice of flowmeter will depend on the type of measurement you need to make, length of time the measurement will be made and the pipe material in use.
Products include the Katronic KATflow 200 and KATflow 230 hand-held flow meters, and the Endress and Hauser Prosonic 93T. Contact us to discuss your application and we will recommend the perfect meter for your needs.
If you are looking to purchase rather than rent, check out the range of Non-invasive ultrasonic flow meters at our sister company, Flowquip (https://www.flowquip.co.uk/flowmetertechnologies/ultrasonic-flow-meters/), where permanent installation meters are also available.
Renting a clamp-on flowmeter can help with: Liquid measurement in full pipes, measurement of clean or deionised water, wastewater, oils, solvents, acids, hydrocarbons and other chemicals. Pipe materials are not normally an issue, and a clamp-on meter will work for pipes from 10mm through to 3m or so diameter.
An interesting application for clamp-on meters is in heat metering, where two pairs of transducers along with thermocouples can integrate flow rate and temperature to directly measure the heat used across a factory, room or machine. Ideal for facilities management or energy usage analysis.
Use a clamp-on flowmeter wherever breaking into the pipe is not an option. Clamp-on means just what it says, a simple chain clamp or other band is all that is required. There is no disturbance to the flow, and the very compact transducers can be easily fitted wherever there is a smooth flow.
Each transducer acts as both a transmitter and receiver, emitting and detecting ultrasound pulses that reflect from the pipe walls. Because signals travel both ‘upstream’ and ‘downstream’, the flow rate can be determined by the difference between the two measurements.
