Series SX3 Ultrasonic Flowmeter Detector

Quick and Easy Mounting

Series SX3 Ultrasonic Flowmeter Detectors are paired with Series UXF2 converters and employ a clamp-on type design for permanent use based on transit time measuring method. These detectors are ideal for clean liquids containing no air bubbles such as pure water. The easy-to-use compact and lightweight design is intended for integration into mechanical devices. It is applicable for small to medium size pipes of diameter range from 1 to 23" (25 to 600 mm) and provides superior cost performance.

Product Applications

  • Helps ensure pumping efficiency.
  • Provides accurate leak detection.
  • Not influenced by fluid's temperature or pressure.
