New ultrasonic liquid flow meter series


Producers and users of petroleum and petrochem products now have a new flow measurement tool available that promises sophisticated non-contact technology and intrinsically safe transducer designs. Thermo Electron Corp. has just released a new series of ultrasonic liquid flow meters under the AutoFlow banner. Thermo's patented transducer technology claims high accuracy and compact, rugged design, with high operator safety and cost-effective pricing.

The AutoFlow spool piece design is reportedly unique with ATEX Zone 0 intrinsically safe certification, making it usable in the most hazardous situations in land based, marine, or offshore applications. It also interfaces with existing Class 1 Div. 1 installations. The four-path transit time technology delivers high accuracy on virtually all petroleum products with built-in compensation inputs for temperature, pressure, and density factors.

“The petroleum industry has recognized for some time that conventional mechanical flowmeters are a maintenance nightmare,” says Mike Snowdon, product specialist with Thermo Electron. “They're replacing turbine and positive displacement meters with products like AutoFlow.”
