Niagara Meters Ultrasonic Flow Sensor achieves two tasks with the one unit. The system can be used as a continuous level sensor or as a flow meter for open channel applications.
Level Measurement; The Ultrasonic non-contact continuous level measurement system operates by transmitting an ultrasonic signal (sound wave) from the transducer to the surface of the liquid being measured. A reflection or echo is received, processed and the distance to the fluid is obtained. This distance, combined with the dimensions of the vessel, is converted to volume.
Open Channel Flow Monitoring; The Ultrasonic non-contact flow sensor operates by transmitting an ultrasonic signal (sound wave) from the transducer to the surface of the liquid being measured. A reflection or echo is received, processed and the distance to the fluid is obtained. This distance, combined with the pre-programmed dimensions of the flume, weir or nozzle, is converted to flow.
Niagara Meters has been widely used in the following industries since 1859: agriculture, food, beverage, tobacco, mining, oil & gas production, paper, petrochemical processing, plastics & rubber, pharmaceutical, and power generation. Niagara Meter's products include Nutating Disc, Oscillating Piston and Turbine technologies for use in industrial flow measurement applications. With over 150 years of experience, Niagara Meters produce high quality and highly robust flow meters based on a number of technologies that are suitable for large variety of industries and flow measurement applications.
