Ultrasonic Flow and Energy Meter

Badger Meter’s TFX-5000 ultrasonic clamp-on flow and energy meters are a versatile solution for measuring volumetric flow and heating/cooling rates in clean liquids as well as those with small amounts of suspended solids or aeration, such as surface water or raw sewage. Typical applications include water mains, reclaimed water, lift stations and booster pump stations in water and wastewater; the energy transfer of chilled water (cooling) and glycol/hot water (heating) in HVAC; and produced water in oil and gas. The meter is intended for users seeking an accurate, reliable and affordable transit time metering device. The unit is available in a variety of configurations and can be selected with features suitable to meet particular application requirements.

Versions for water/waste water and for heating/cooling applications

By clamping onto the outside of pipes, ultrasonic devices do not contact the internal liquid and have inherent advantages, such as reduced installation time and cost. The meter is available in two versions: A flow meter for water delivery, raw sewage, cooling water, sea water, deionized water, water-glycol mixtures, alcohols, chemicals and many caustic fluids and a heating/cooling energy flow meter used in conjunction with dual clamp-on Resistance Temperature Detectors (RTDs) for temperature measurement in hydronic processes and HVAC systems. The TFX-5000 meter can be employed for a host of data logging tasks. Users can select up to eight parameters to log, including flow rate and total, signal strength, and alarms with a time/date stamp to an 8 GB microSD card. It also features helpful diagnostics that take the guesswork out of isolating process or application problems. Users are alerted to out-of-specification flow conditions and can access a history with the most recent alarm, error and event codes.

The TFX-5000 meter features a large, easy-to-read graphical display and provides Modbus RTU, Modbus TCP/IP, BACnet MS/TP, and BACnet/IP connectivity. Configuration and troubleshooting are through an optional keypad or via a Universal Serial Bus (USB) cable using the SoloCUE® Flow Device Manager software. The meter utilizes a four-level passcode security system for applications requiring unit lockdown. Installation is simplified with new Dynasonics Easy Rail Transducers, which provide a better acoustic coupling and lessen the need to re-apply couplant due to mounting errors.
