Clamp-on ultrasonic flow measurement
Best-in-class performance and day-to-day operation.
SITRANS F S clamp-on ultrasonic flow meters showcase the benefits of digital signal processing: market-leading accuracy, noise immunity and reliability. Need more convincing? There’s also the high-speed data update rate and superior user-friendliness at every stage of installation and operation. With no pressure drop or energy loss, a wide turn-down ratio and non-intrusive sensors that can be installed without cutting into the pipe – you can’t go wrong with SITRANS F S clamp-on for liquid flow measurement.
SITRANS F S clamp-on ultrasonic flowmetersSiemens is a pioneer in the use of Lamb wave transit-time sensors for clamp-on flow measurement. We call it WideBeam® – and it increases accuracy by reducing sensitivity to any changes in the fluid. How? WideBeam® technology uses the pipe wall as a waveguide to optimize the signal-to-noise ratio and provide a wider area of vibration. These high-performance sensors are designed for steel pipes, but they also work with aluminum, titanium and plastic.
How does an ultrasonic flow meter work?
When traveling in the same direction as a flowing medium, ultrasonic waves move faster than waves traveling against the flow. Ultrasonic flow meters use this principle to accurately measure the volume of many liquids and gases – and also to derive parameters like density and viscosity. Watch the video to learn more!
