6000 Series Portable Ultrasonic Flow Meter

Dual Channel Flow Meter
Portable Clamp on Ultrasonic Flowmeter


 


  • Portable dual mode flowmeter both TRANSIT TIME and DOPPLER mode without changing sensors
  • Easy to install clamp-on sensors with no process interruption
  • Non-invasive flow measurement of liquids, no pipeline disturbance, no pressure loss
  • Suitable for all commonly used pipe materials with pipe diameters from 6 mm to 6.5 m (1/4" to 256")
  • Integrated wall thickness measurement, 2 flow channels

 


  • Low installation effort and costs
  • Dual measuring mode (transit-time and doppler)
  • Measurement is independent of fluid conductivity and pressure
  • No pressure loss, no possibility of leakage
  • Retrospective installation for existing plants possible
  • No cutting of pipes necessary, no interruption of process, no plant shut down
  • No additional fittings for maintenance required
  • Hygienic measurement, no risk of contamination, suitable for ultra clean liquids
  • No contact with medium, no risk of corrosion when used with aggressive media
  • Cost advantages when used with large diameter pipes, high pressure systems, etc.

Our range of non-invasive flowmeters utilises ultra-sonic technology for the accurate flow measure-ment of liquids in full pipes. The portable device has been designed to meet the needs of the Service/Maintenance and Commis-sioning Engineer wishing to check the flow rate of liquids at different locations in the plant. The set-up of the unit is simple and user friendly in order to obtain the required flow information in minutes.

The measurement of flow is based on the principle that sound waves are influenced by a flowing medium. Measurements are made by penetrating the pipe with ultrasound and subsequently time differences, frequency variations and phase shifts of the ultrasonic signals are evaluated. The ultrasonic sensors are clamped onto the outside of the pipe, thus eliminating the need to dismantle the pipework and interrupt the process. The unit can be applied to any type of standard pipe carrying clean or dirty liquids.

 

The EESIFLO 6000 series is a tried and tested ultrasonic flow meter is a highly accurate ultrasonic flow meter designed to measure flow rates on almost any kind of liquid application with single or dual channel. It is extremely easy to set up the flow meter and in some cases (with magnetic clamping fixtures) it should not take more than 1 minute.

The 6000 series is a powerful device designed to measure not only in general applications but also in very small and extremely large pipes (up to 6.5 M in diameter) The unit is available for rental and purchase through most EESIFLO office locations and also through EESIFLO distributors. The sensors have been carefully designed to eliminate errors caused by changing pipe temperatures and the diurnal effect.
