Ultrasonic Insertion Flow Meter-Lined/Large Pipe flow meter
The Ultrasonic Insertion Flow Meter consists of a converter and a pair of insert sensors. The plug-in sensor consists of a positioning base, a ball valve, and a sensor core. Principle: When ultrasonic waves pass through the liquid, the liquid has a slight influence on the insertion time. The change of the insertion time is proportional to the liquid flow rate.
Insertion Flow Meter (Model:2000S) solves the problem of signal attenuation when ultrasonic Clamp-on flow meter works for a long time and the problem of fouling on the inner surface of the pipe without receiving the signal. It can be installed without stopping production. The plug-in sensor can be installed by only opening two mounting holes on the surface of the pipe. Using the hole-opening tool, the plug-in ultrasonic sensor can be installed without stopping the water. Because the sensor is in direct contact with the fluid, the measurement is stable and reliable.

Why use Ultrasonic Insertion Flow Meter?
There are 5 conditions to use Ultrasonic Insertion Flow Meter:
In the above cases, the use of Insertion Flow Meter can be considered.
Large Pipe Flow Meters
The cost of monitoring the flow in a large diameter pipe is very high. Today, modified intrusive and clip-on flowmeter technology can be used to measure flow in large pipelines. Using plug-in flow meters, it is possible to monitor the flow in pipes up to 6000 mm in diameter.
Of course, except for ultrasonic flow meters. There are other flow meters suitable for liquid flow in large-diameter pipes.
When measuring the liquid flow of large-diameter pipes, the following factors should be considered when selecting a flow meter:
- The pressure loss should be as small as possible;
- Due to the low flow rate (to reduce operating costs), the inner wall of the pipeline is easy to deposit dirt and sludge;
- The measuring range of the flowmeter used should be particularly large to adapt to the disparity of browsing in different time periods;
- The protection level of the flowmeter should also meet the requirements of the environment.

Insertion Flow Meters
The insertion flow meter can provide a low-cost alternative to full-caliber flow equipment. Full-caliber flow equipment will take up a lot of space and require a lot of installation work. And there are special difficulties in service or calibration.
Drill a hole of appropriate size in the pipe wall. And a method of fixing the insertion gauge is adopted. This can be a saddle clamp, a welded threaded short tube, or a mating flange.
Then insert the plug-in gauge into the pipe to the depth recommended by the manufacturer. If on-site calibration is possible, the depth can be adjusted to improve accuracy.
Once the meter is fixed, it will only measure the speed at this time. And the volume flow cannot be calculated before considering the pipe diameter and the nature of the medium. Usually in the electronic flow computer/display unit.
How does the Insertion flow meter work?
Insertion flow meter has a variety of working principles to choose from, including impeller, turbine, Karman vortex, electromagnetic, thermal mass, and pitot tube. They all provide what is considered the most important feature of the Insertion flow meter. That is, they can be inserted into existing pipelines. And has all the benefits needed (see the advantages below).
Our series of flow measuring instruments for large pipelines is shown below.
If, the insertion type of flowmeter is too troublesome to install. Then you can consider using a clamp-on ultrasonic flow meter. Simple and easy to use.
