Emergent Energy Ultrasonic Transit Time Meters - FAQs
The meters can be configured to work with a range of pipe sizes. Currently, our strap on ultrasonic flow meters will support measurement of pipes that range between 1" - 48" pipes. If there are any specific applications that falls outside of this range, please reach out to email@example.com for further support.
Our ultrasonic flow meters work on a variety of pipe materials, as long as they are not jacketed or has excessive corrosion that might hinder transmittal of ultrasonic signal through the pipe. For this reason, PVC piping and copper piping are idealistic installations. Carbon steel and rigid pipe offers some complexity as there might be excessive corrosion inside the pipe. For installation onto painted surfaces, the installer should sand off (smooth) the painted surface.
The meters will work on water based applications, which included water and glycol blends that are within the meter's rated operating range.
Once the outside diameter of the pipe is entered into the meter, the meter will provide the actual installation spacing of the sensors to ensure a good quality signal.
The meters are configured for 24VDC power, but the supply power can range between 10VDC to 36VDC. If the customer's specific application has specific needs, we can also provide power converters for these specific applications. We can also provide pre-built panels that includes power supplies and the necessary integration components for our metering solutions.
The meters can communicate through a multitude of options. It can provide a scaled 4-20 mAmp signal as well as scaled pulsed outputs through the built in relay. There are also MODBUS RS-485 communication options.
Our panels are standard ABS low voltage enclosures that includes a cord whip and pre-mounted and wired components. Please discuss with us your specific needs and we can build a panel that will house our meter and meet your integration requirements.
