Katronic introduce innovative solution for contactless flow metering on large scale applications

Posted: Thursday 3rd June 2010

The clamp-on ultrasonic flow meter specialists of Katronic Technologies will present a new fixed installation flow transmitter at Hannover Messe. The new KATflow 100 will offer an innovative modular design to provide flexibility on applications where simple process input and output options are sufficient. Additionally, due to its simplicity, it will form a very competitive and cost-effective solution for large-scale projects.

In order to offer highest flexibility, the KATflow 100 transmitter electronics can be placed in different wall mounted enclosure types to suit individual customer requirements. Since it is programmable via its RS232 interface, the KATflow 100 does not require a keypad. The flow transmitter further offers AC, DC, battery and solar panel power supply options as well as an optional RS485 interface which can be enabled for Modbus RTU communication.

The process input and output options available on the KATflow 100 feature active and passive current inputs (0/4 to 20 mA), PT100 temperature inputs, active and passive current outputs (0/4 to 20 mA), a HART enabled current output (0/4 to 20 mA), voltage output (0 to 10 V), frequency output (0 to10 kHz) as well as open-collector and relay outputs.

Furthermore, the single channel KATflow 100 can be enabled for heat quantity measurement using PT100 clamp-on temperature sensors to monitor the fluid’s temperature. Ordered with the optional sound velocity measurement function, it can also be used for contactless product identification, interface and pig detection, and concentration measurements.

The KATflow clamp-on ultrasonic flow meters measure flow externally avoiding the need to cut into pipes for installation. They work on almost any clean or dirty liquid - regardless of its electric conductivity - with high accuracy for both flow velocity and volumetric flow. Katronic flow meters can be employed on pipelines of any acoustically conductive material and diameters from 10 mm to more than 3.0 m (0.4” to > 118”).
