The Krohne OPTISONIC 6300 is now available with new designed stainless-steel sensor rails and enhanced signal converter for quick and easy setup. The ultrasonic clamp-on flowmeter is suitable for temporary or permanent mount installation on virtually any pipe up to DN4000 / 160¨, with process temperatures up to +200°C / +392°F. It allows for flow measurement of (non-)conductive liquids in main and utility applications where inline measurement is not possible or desirable.
One rail – many applications
The new stainless steel 316L sensor rails are designed for quick, easy and accurate installations and can be mounted to any pipe within minutes: the same rail type can be used in hazardous areas, in extended temperature applications, in harsh conditions like offshore environments, or as IP68/ NEMA 6P version in submerged applications. For connection to the signal converter, they feature a fixed signal cable of 6 m/ 19 ft or 10 m/ 32 ft, optionally up to 30 m/ 100 ft. As an alternative to coupling grease and to reduce maintenance to an absolute minimum, solid coupling pads can be chosen as contact material for the ultrasonic transducers, e.g. for high temperature applications.
Advanced diagnostic features
The signal converter has also been improved for quick and easy setup of the measurement point with pre-programmed pipe parameters and an installation wizard. It controls either single path or dual path/dual pipe applications simultaneously: for demanding applications, OPTISONIC 6300 offers Dual path or X-mode configurations (two paired sensor rails with crossed measuring paths) for a stable and reliable measurement. It also features advanced diagnostics in accordance with NAMUR NE107, and can be used as a heat energy calculator. All measured or calculated values can be displayed customized or made available as an output value.
