Clamp on Ultrasonic Flow Meter is a wall-mounted ultrasonic flow meter using TGA time difference technology. TGA is an algorithm for measuring process time with higher speed and accuracy.

Clamp on Ultrasonic Flow Meter

Clamp on Ultrasonic Flow Meter ( Model: 3000S) is composed of a host and an external clamp sensor. The flow measurement of various liquids can be completed by simply sticking the external clamp sensor on the surface of the pipeline. Compared with the traditional flowmeter, it does not need to cut off the pipe and flow, the installation is convenient and quick, and it truly realizes the lossless installation. Compared with the common TDC algorithm of other manufacturers, TGA measurement technology is an algorithm for measuring process time with higher speed and higher accuracy.

Features of Clamp on Ultrasonic Flow Meter

Compared with other conventional flowmeters, the LRF-3000S ultrasonic flowmeter has the following characteristics in addition to the flexibility of on-site installation, high response speed and better measurement capability under low flow rates:

  1. Use an independent high-performance FPGA chip with 400,000 gate arrays. The measurement rate can be greater than 300 times per second. Compared with other brands, it has a great improvement in the resistance to air bubbles in the measurement pipe diameter. It can withstand continuous bubbles for up to 5 seconds.
  2. Increased signal strength. It has greater penetrating power to various scales, rust in the pipe and the inner lining of the pipe.
  3. 4-line LED display. Easy to operate.
  4. The sensor adopts our unique manufacturing process and matching technology. The zero point range can be controlled within 0.03m/s. The static time difference between each pair of sensors is less than 2 nanoseconds. This effectively guarantees the authenticity of the measured time difference.

Clamp on Ultrasonic Flow Meter Working Principle

Clamp on Ultrasonic Flow Meter adopts the measurement principle of time difference method. It uses the ultrasonic wave emitted by the sensor to propagate in the flowing fluid. The sound wave propagation speed in the downstream direction will increase, and the backward direction will decrease. In the same propagation distance, there will be different transmission times. According to the difference between the transmission time and the measured The relationship between fluid velocity measures the fluid velocity.

The flow rate of the fluid is different in different positions in the tube. The flow rate in the center of the tube is faster than the flow rate near the wall of the tube. The flow velocity distribution of the fluid in the pipeline can be represented by the flow velocity cross-sectional distribution diagram.

By setting the flowmeter and considering the cross-sectional distribution of the flow velocity, the average flow velocity can be calculated. Then the volume flow of the fluid can be obtained according to the cross-sectional area of the pipe.

Clamp on Ultrasonic Flow Meter Working Principle

V measure fluid velocity
M ultrasonic reflection times
D pipe diameter
θ The angle between the ultrasonic signal and the fluid
T up The time when the downstream sensor transmits the signal to the upstream
T down Time from upstream sensor to downstream
ΔT = T up – T down

Clamp on water flow meter

Clamp on water flow meter means to measure the water flow rate by clamping the ultrasonic flowmeter sensor outside the pipe. The sensor is non-invasive. Of course, according to the actual requirements of the measurement, it can be fixed or portable.

So, why are we willing to use Clamp on ultrasonic flowmeter to measure the flow rate of water?

There are many types of flow meters for measuring water. Common ones are: V cone flowmeter, electromagnetic flowmeter, metal rotor flowmeter, vortex flowmeter, liquid turbine flowmeter, ultrasonic open channel flowmeter, ultrasonic flowmeter, etc.

Advantages of Clamp on water flow meter for water measurement:

  1. External clamp installation, without damaging the pipeline. easy and convenient.
  2. It is convenient to measure ultra-small and ultra-large pipes. As small as Φ9.5. As large as DN6000.
  3. Electromagnetic flowmeter is used to measure the volume flow of conductive liquid with conductivity greater than 5μS/cm. Then other water flow with conductivity less than 5μS/cm can be measured with ultrasonic clamp on water flow meter. For example, ultrapure water.
  4. For pure water, drinking water, etc., it is necessary to keep clean and hygienic. If contact flow meters such as turbine flow meters and orifice flow meters are used, the material must be strictly required. At least 316SS material is required. Then the cost of the contact flowmeter will be very high.
