Micronics ultrasonic flowmeter provides alternative to traditional technologies
29 May 2019
The New U1000MKII-FM is a clamp-on, ultrasonic flowmeter alternative to traditional inline meters for non-invasive water flow applications, offering significant installation cost and dry maintenance benefits over traditional in-line products, says the company.
Micronics has built on its success with the U1000 meter range to develop a MKII version, which extends the pipe size to cover applications from 22mm to 180mm OD pipe.
And while the U1000MKII-FM can still be used as a stand-alone product, in the all-important area of connectivity the new product supports optional Modbus RTU slave and RS485 serial communications.
The MKII also incorporates a new cross correlation flow measurement system and 1Mhz transducers to improve performance on poor older thick wall pipes and larger pipe-work, now up to 180mm OD. And there is also a new water/glycol option for chilled water applications.
