The MiniSonic-600 ultrasonic flow meter

The MiniSonic-600 is an accurate and economical fixed ultrasonic flow meter suitable for measuring liquids in full pipes. It incorporates all the intelligence, innovation and experience acquired by Ultraflux in 40 years of being the world’s specialists and technical experts in ultrasonic transit time measurements.

Features and benefits

Suitable for pressurised pipes containing liquids (including water) this bi-directional  ultrasonic flow meter can be used for a wide range of applications. it is perfect for operational monitoring in most process plants and pipe distribution networks.

 

The external clamp on probes (without any contact with the liquid) enable quick, easy and low cost installation. The integrity of the pipe is not jeopardised and flow is not disrupted by a shutdown. There are no moving parts so maintenance is not an issue. With no intrusion in the pipe there are no pressure drops or turbulence.

 

Ability to measure most pipe diameters. This ultrasonic flow meter has probes to measure from 10mm OD to 630mm OD. The clamp-on probes are suitable for all metallic, plastic and multi-layered pipes. Not all asbestos pipes are suitable for clamp-on probes and insertion probes may be used in more difficult applications (concrete and corroding pipes).

 

Unrivaled accuracy and versatility with performance accuracy up to 0.5%, measurement resolution less than 0.1 nano second and suitable flow range from 1 mm to 45 metres per second.

 

Dual Chord Input enables this converter to receive signals simultaneously from two sets of probes either on the same pipe or different pipes. This may be necessary when there is a pipe with a low flow bi-pass and data from both pipes is required.  It may also be of value in a challenging application requiring 4 sensors on the same pipe to obtain an accurate result. The ability to monitor two separate pipelines simultaneously with one ultrasonic  flow meter is extremely convenient with cost and setup time efficiencies.

 

Ability to be powered with low voltage DC this ultrasonic flow meter can be used in remote locations with solar powered batteries. Requires 9 – 36 Volts DC. Other options available.

 

Signal quality index displayed as a percentage assists the operator to identify any distortions caused by electrical noise or air bubbles.

 

Connectivity with two 4-20mA outputs and 2 alarm status relays this ultrasonic flow meter is perfect for integration with building management and telemetry systems.

 

Durable aluminium enclosure with high ingress protection rating of IP67 ensures this ultrasonic flow meter is suitable for use in harsh environmental conditions. The backlit display, keypad and wall mount bracket facilitate quick and easy installation and setup.
