Flow Meters for Fluid

Fuji Electric delivers high performance ultrasonic Flow Meters to optimized for 0.5-inch to 234-inch pipe diameters. The portable ultrasonic flow meter is ideal for flow surveys, verifications, and energy/BTU measurements. The fixed unit offers high performance measurement in a versatile and easy to setup package. The Duosonics model is a hybrid pulse doppler-transit time unit for irregular profiles, non-Newtonian flows, and applications lacking sufficient upstream/downstream straight run mounting requirements.

Measurement principle – Transit time difference method

pair of sensors are installed on the outside wall of the pipe, facing each other slantingly.  Ultrasonic waves are propagated diagonally between the upstream and downstream sensors.
In one case, the wave is “carried” by the fluid, in the other it is “braked”. It therefore takes a different time to switch from one sensor to another. This difference is proportional to the measurement principle of ultrasonic flowmeters for liquid speed and therefore to the flow rate of the fluid.

Anti-bubble measurement (ABM) system

The 32 bits  microprocessor based electronics allows a high accuracy (±1%), a response time of 1 second or less, a very good immunity to air bubbles (ABM system) and to change of fluid pressure and temperature (continuous calculation of sonic speed).

Flange mounted FST flowmeter – High accurate measurement

Three pairs of sensors offer an accuracy of ± 0.2%.  . The FST model is suitable for all energy-saving applications where its high precision and the absence of pressure loss help to reduce consumption and costs.
The FST measurement principle is the transit time difference method with parallel three measuring paths.
