Ultrasonic water meter for instantaneous measurements

ELIS, represented locally by Instrotech, has on offer a battery-powered ultrasonic water meter intended for measuring flow rate instantaneously and pressure and consumption in water piping (standard EN 14154 for water works), water distribution systems and other industrial applications.

The compact, highly accurate ELIS FLOMIC FL5024 has long-term stability over a wide range of measured values, and conforms to the IP68* protection class.  The meter does not need any external power supply, does not include any moving parts and has significantly lower hydraulic losses.  The technical parameters and other features of the FLOMIC water meter make it suitable not only for water consumption measurements but also for water-leak tracking and monitoring of the general condition of water-supply networks where the meter output signals can be connected via data transfer systems to remote computer control stations.

The measurement method utilised by these meters is a single-beam transit-time pulse method, based on evaluation of the time needed for an ultrasonic signal to cross the distance between two measuring transducers.  In the standard version, the meter measures instantaneous flow rate (in m3/hour) and the total volume of water passed through the meter (in m3) in the given flow direction.  The measured data is converted into passive pulse output signals.

For more information and a full specification of the ELIS FLOMIC FL5024 ultrasonic water meter, contact Instrotech on 010 595 1831 or sales@instrotech.co.za.
