Portaflow-С series ultrasonic flowmeter

 Portaflow-C.jpgPORTAFLOW-C is a portable type ultrasonic flowmeter utilizing the transit time measuring method, using clamp-on type detector. It is a compact and lightweight instrument incorporating the latest electronics and digital signal processing technologies, realizing high perfomance and easy operation.

According the used sensor, it is possible to measure a flow in a metallic or plastic tube of diameter from 13 to 6000mm. It can measure bi-directional flow speeds from -32 to +32 m/s. The accuracy of measure is ± 1% of flow full scale and response time is within 1 second. To adapt itself to every types of flow measurement of liquid, the PORTAFLOW-C is equipped with an algorithm of compensation of the temperature and pressure variations by measure of the speed of sound. An anti-bubble algorithm (ABM) allows maintaining the measurement in spite of a perturbed environment (bubbles or particles in suspension in the liquid). External mounting of sensors allows easy installation without pipe drilling nor cutting and flow cut off, easy maintenance (no moving parts), no pressure loss, no risk of leakage and no internal corrosion of sensors (no contact with fluid).

A large LCD graphic screen, a set of pop-up menus and a reduced number of keys make of this device a simple, powerful and friendly tool very appreciated by every person wishing to do a punctual measure of flow.

SD card_Portaflow.jpgIn addition to the display of flow and totalization, the PORTAFLOW-C™ also offers functions of data logging (stored in a SD memory card), of graphic display of the measured value and of the resultant sound wave, and the storage in memory of 1 to 20 configurations.

Heat quantity measurement function calculates the heat quantity received and sent with liquid (water) in cooling and heating. Two 4-20mA inputs are available for temperature measurements. The consumed heat quantity can be displayed and saved on the SD memory card.
