Dynasonics has developed a clamp-on ultrasonic flow meter named the TFX-Ultra™. It provides accurate and repeatable flow measurement readings for full pipe liquid applications in 13mm to 3800mm internal diameter pipes where system shutdown is not feasible. The unit is designed to simply clamp-on to the outside of existing pipe, reducing installation time and material costs. There is no need to shut down the process for installation or maintenance and with no moving parts, there is no mechanical wear - no repair kits or replacement parts are ever needed.
Once installed along the distribution network the TFX-Ultra™ flow meters can isolate usage by defined regions and then transmit readings to the local monitoring system via wired or wireless means, this ensures an easy detection of leaks- thus tremendously reducing the time between leak detection and trouble-shooting. The cost savings are large; there is less downtime, property or road damage and reductions in water wastage due to leaks.
