Measurement and Calibration Principle of FLEXIM's Non-Invasive Ultrasonic Flowmeter

The principle of FLEXIM's ultrasonic flow measurement of liquids and gases relies on the propagation of ultrasonic wave signals into the medium. This measurement method exploits the fact that the transmission speed of an ultrasonic signal depends on the flow velocity of the carrier medium. Similar to a swimmer swimming against the current, an ultrasonic signal moves slower against the flow direction of the medium than when in flow direction.

For the measurement, two ultrasonic pulses are sent through the medium, one in the flow direction, and a second one against it. The transducers are alternatively working as an emitter and a receiver. The transit-time of the ultrasonic signal propagating in the flow direction is shorter than the transit-time of the signal propagating against the flow direction. A transit-time difference, Δt, can thus be measured and allows the determination of the average flow velocity based on the propagation path of the ultrasonic signals. An additional profile correction is performed by our proprietary algorithms, to obtain an exceptional accuracy on the average flow velocity on the cross-section of the pipe - which is proportional to the volume flow, and when temperature and pressure compensated, to the mass flow.

Since ultrasounds propagate in solids, the transducers can be mounted onto the pipe. The measurement is therefore non-invasive, and thus no cutting or welding of pipes is required for the installation of the transducers.

Draeger Tubes & Chip Measurement System Handbook

Draeger is the leader in industrial gas and vapor analysis and have developed more detection devices and tubes for more applications than any other gas detection company.

Draeger sampling tubes allow identification and measurement of different substances even under difficult conditions.

Draeger Chip Measurement System (CMS) combines Chips for measure specific substances with an electronic analyzer for easy-to-use spot-measurement. The analyzer combines an optical system for analyzing the color reaction with a mass flow controller and pump system.
