FLEXIM says its new FLUXUS F721 XLF is a non-intrusive flowmeter for applications where every drop counts.
The new ultrasonic flow measuring system is designed to provide precise measurement of flow rates as low as 1 gph and below in small pipes with diameters from 3/8 to two inches.
As the clamp-on transducers are mounted on the outside of the pipe, meter installation and commissioning can be done without any pipework modifications or process interruptions.
The external flow measurement works independently of the pipe wall thickness and pressure ranges and does not cause pressure loss. As the measuring device does not come in direct contact with the flowing media, it is not subject to wear and tear, meaning drift readings and high maintenance efforts are not required. The measuring transmitter is available in either aluminum or stainless-steel housing.
Typical applications include chemical injection of scale and corrosion inhibitors in the oil and gas industry, chemical dosing in wastewater treatment and measurement of low flow spray paint lines in the automotive industry.
