Model UFM Compact Ultrasonic Flowmeter

Cost Effective, Compact & Adjustable Design, Non-Invasive

Model UFM Compact Ultrasonic Flowmeter is a low cost clamp-on, ultrasonic flowmeter. The Model UFM implements the transit-time difference to measure flow rates in pipes non-invasively. It is a compact and lightweight design, featuring an easily installed, all in one clamp-on unit. This unit can measure velocity and flow in pipes with outside diameters ranging from 0.98 to 4.62" (24.89 to 117.35 mm). The screen offers easy to read text with a convenient backlight for visual comfort. This model comes with a volume pulse and 4 to 20 mA flow rate output.

PRINCIPLES OF OPERATION
Two sensors located in the guiderail are placed on the exterior of the pipe, and each transmits an ultrasonic pulse through the pipe and fluid to the other. The velocity of the liquid flowing through the pipes causes the pulse to accelerate or decelerate. The difference in the transit times of the two pulses is used to calculate the flow rate. The use of transit time allows the flowmeter to be unaffected by pressure or temperature changes.
