Aquip have a comprehensive range of Flexim clamp on ultrasonic flow meters, including concentration meters, water meters, energy meters and gas meters.
Flexim ultrasonic flow meters are designed to withstand even the most rugged and demanding environments in the chemical, mining and petroleum sectors, whilst being precise, accurate and hygienic for the pharmaceutical and food/beverage industries.
The robust transducers can be installed under insulation for permanent measurement points, perfect for the HVAC / central energy markets.
Clamp-on meters have the advantage that they do not intrude into the flow they are measuring, thus eliminating potential pressure/energy losses. Furthermore, unlike mechanical meters, they have no moving parts, so are inexpensive to maintain and installation time is minimal. Since these meters do not require any pipe modification or cutting in, leakage is not a risk. They are ideal for use with toxic or corrosive fluids or gases and high pressure applications.
Based in Berlin, Flexim have continued to innovate and invest in R&D to ensure the non-invasive technology remains ahead of the curve. From their foundations (Humboldt University and the University of Rostock), the four graduates-cum-directors are still the driving force behind the company’s push to continually improve the technology.
Aquip are the exclusive WA and NT distributor of the Flexim range of clamp-on ultrasonic flow meters, thermal flow meters and concentration meters.
Aquip offers rentals on a comprehensive range of portable ultrasonic flow meters, for the use in a range of industries and conditions. Furthermore we offer support and technical advice for the correct usage.
Clamp On Ultrasonic Concentration Meters
The clamp-on ultrasonic technology measures the speed of sound of the fluid as part of its measurement cycle. By also measuring the temperature by way of RTD, we can learn of the concentration of select fluids such as ammonium nitrate, nitric acid, sulphuric acid and many more chemicals. The clamp-on technology is an excellent alternative to other concentration meters such as a coriolis meter, since there is no chance of drift or leakage from corrosive / toxic chemicals.
Being simple to attach and use, clamp-on ultrasonic water meters are ideal for measuring water flows, especially on larger pipes or pipes that can’t easily be modified. Aquip’s extensive range includes meters for all pipe diameters, wall thicknesses and field situations.
Measuring energy flows is a key element of today’s rising demand for energy efficiency. Aquip meets this need, with the Flexim range of high accuracy clamp-on permanent and portable energy flow meters that compare inlet and outlet temperatures, combine with the volumetric flow and calculate the thermal energy flow in the heat exchange. Interfaces include both BACnet and Modbus for simple integration into the Building Management System.
For accuracy and durability, Flexim’s range of clamp-on ultrasonic gas flow meters set new standards. Where other manufacturers attempt to measure gas flow using adaptations of liquid metering transducers, Flexim’s computed Lamb wave propagation and analysis technology gives superior accuracy and performance, even at relative low pressures.
