Ultrasonic flow meter for clean applications

11 September 2013

Constructed from Victrex PEEK polymer, the Atrato ultrasonic flow meter from Titan Enterprises has been designed for use in flow monitoring applications that demand a high degree of cleanliness.

The flow meter utilises a patented ultrasonic flow meter technology that enables the direct-through meter to handle flows from laminar to turbulent. The device deploys the 'time of flight' measurement system where a signal is passed along the pipe with the flow and back up the pipe against the flow, the difference in these signals produces the flow rate.

The high performance polymer was specified to enable the thread forms which attach the flow meter to the flow pipes to be moulded. This was not possible to achieve using traditional metal thread forms. The polymer also needed to be chemically resistant and have the capability to operate at high temperature up to 110ÂșC. Due to its intended use in beverage dispensing applications the material needed to be FDA compliant. Additionally, low moisture absorption was a prerequisite for medical and pharmaceutical applications.
