FLEXIM presents the new clamp-on ultrasonic flowmeter for steam with FLUXUS ST. The new measuring system offers the same advantages as FLEXIM’s well known flowmeter series FLUXUS: Reliable and accurate flow measurement from outside the pipe, free from pressure loss, wear and tear, and maintenance. The installation requires minimal effort, no pipe work, and never affects operation and supply.
The acoustic measuring method proves to be impressive with its exceptionally high measuring dynamics, is highly sensitive even at very low flow velocities and functions independently of the flow direction. Due to this large flow range (flow velocities from 0.01 m/s up to 60 m/s), there is no need to reduce pipe diameter to fit an inline meter’s requirement of minimum flow velocity. Moreover, the non-invasive measurement does not cause any pressure loss. The transducer mountings can be completely insulated to reduce any heat loss to the environment.
Stationary and portable meter
FLUXUS ST measures volume and mass flow of saturated and superheated steam at temperatures up to 180 °C / 356°F. The clamp-on ultrasound system is available as both a stationary and a portable meter: FLUXUS G721 ST is the stationary flow meter for steam and offers a variety of digital communication interfaces such as Profibus, Modbus RTU, TCP and others. With the new portable FLUXUS G601 ST, FLEXIM offers a reliable multi-tool for maintenance and energy managers: in addition to steam, the measuring system can also measure liquids, gases, compressed air and heat.
