Ultrasonic flow measurement, industrial inline flow measurement.

Ultrasonic flow meters, using the ultrasonic principle, measure the velocity of flow.

We can use a different type of ultrasonic flow meters,

like Portable ultrasonic flow meter, Handheld ultrasonic flow meter, Clamp-on Ultrasonic Gas Flow Meter.

For airflow, natural gas, water, velocity measurement.

There are two types of ultrasonic flow meter technologies: Doppler shift and transit-time.

Transit-time measures the time differential between signals sent upstream and downstream.

The differential is directly proportional to the velocity of the water.

Transit-time meters are best used for measuring the flow of clean liquids and, as a result, are the most popular type of ultrasonic meter. 

Doppler shift measures the difference in frequency of the sound wave,

reflected off gas bubbles or particles in the flow stream,

and is suitable for aerated or dirty liquids.

The Working Principle of Ultrasonic Flow Measurement

Ultrasonic flowmeters use sound waves to determine the velocity of a fluid flowing in a pipe.

At no flow conditions, the frequencies of an ultrasonic wave transmitted into a pipe,

and its reflections from the fluid are the same.

Under flowing conditions, the frequency of the reflected wave is different,

due to the Doppler effect.

When the fluid moves faster, the frequency shift increases linearly.

The transmitter processes signals from the transmitted wave,

and its reflections to determine the flow rate.

How does a fuel flow transducer work?

Fuel flow meters, also known as turbine flow meters, are the main types of speed flow meters. A freely rotatable impeller is installed in the fluid flowing pipe. When the fluid passes, its motion can make the impeller rotate. The larger the fluid flow rate, the larger the kinetic energy and the higher the impeller speed.

The fluid flow can be determined by measuring the number of revolutions or the number of revolutions of the impeller.

Ultrasonic flow meter advantages and disadvantages

Generally, an ultrasonic flow meter is the device,

that uses ultrasound to measure the velocity of liquid flow,

that helps in determining the volume of liquid flow also.

The ultrasonic flow meters are made using the ultrasonic transducers,

which are clamped to the external surface of a pipe,

to generate the ultrasonic pulses through the pipe.

When the liquid flows inside the pipe,

it creates the time difference in the pulses,

and these are examined to calculate the accurate flow velocity of the liquid.

There are many advantages of using the ULTRASONIC flow meters which include:

  • The electronics in the ultrasonic flow meter includes ultrasonic flowmeter detector which compensates and adapts to the changes in the profile of the flow, type of the liquid and material of the pipe.
  • A portable ultrasonic flow meter converter can be used as a direct method to determine the flow rates effectively when compared to the other flow systems.
  • Ultrasonic flow meter converter is inexpensive to use and maintain when compared to the other mechanical flow meters as they are no moving parts in these flow meters.
  • Their design is highly sophisticated and they do not obstruct the liquid flow, so they can be used for sanitary, corrosive and abrasive liquids.

These are the advantages of the ultrasonic flow meters and there are many disadvantages of the Ultrasonic flow meter which include:

  • The main disadvantage of the ultrasonic flow meter is the cost. The cost of the flow meter is very high when compared to the other types of mechanical flow meters.
  • The ultrasonic flow meters are sophisticated when compared to the mechanical flow meters, so it needs experts to repair and maintain the flow meters.

These are the advantages and disadvantages of the ultrasonic flow meters.
