New open channel or partially filled pipe flow meter measures velocity and level to calculate flow
Sep 13 2019 Read 637 Times
Micronics’ UF AV5500 is a great value, easy to use, area-velocity flow meter for open channels, partially full pipes and surcharged pipes without a flume or weir. And an ideal solution for wastewater, storm-water, effluent, industrial wastewater and irrigation water applications.
The Micronics UF AV5500 uses a submerged ultrasonic sensor to continuously measure both velocity and level in the channel. The sensor resists fouling, corrosion and abrasion and the meter can be configured with the standard submerged velocity-level sensor, or with submerged velocity plus a separate non-contacting ultrasonic level sensor, for highly aerated fluids or those with a high concentration of suspended solids.
The ultrasonic sensor mounts inside the pipe or on the bottom of a channel with a stainless steel mounting bracket (included) and a single screw. No special compounds, tools or hardware are required. And the sensor is completely sealed with no orifices or ports.
It can be configured to measure flow in pipes and channels of any shape, ideal where flumes or weirs are difficult to install and works with water level from 25.4 mm (1") to 4.5 m (15 ft.).
A new integral 26 million point data logger is now a standard feature and the meter now supports industrial automation protocols: Modbus RTU via RS485 or HART (field selectable).
