Ultrasonic Clamp-On Flowmeters

(Available language: English, Deutsch)

Ultrasonic clamp-on flowmeters (“Clamp-ons”) achieve flexible flow measurement without direct fluid contact, simply by being “clamped” onto the outside of the pipe. Besides describing clamp-ons in gerneral with all characteristics which need to be taken into consideration, this course presents the two existing types and compares them with each other: stationary and portable. Clamp-ons are used in almost all industries as a cost-effective alternative to in-line flowmeters.
