ATEX approval for ultrasonic clamp-on flow meter

14 April 2020

Badger has announced new hazardous area certification to ATEX/IECEx Zone 2 for the Dynasonics TFX-5000 transit time ultrasonic flow meter.

The certification covers models measuring DN65 and larger, making the solution suitable for flow measurement in automotive, waste-water, oil and gas and other general industrial applications requiring hazardous zone approvals.

The ultrasonic clamp-on flow and energy meters are said to offer 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 or the energy transfer of chilled water (cooling) and glycol/hot water (heating) in HVAC systems as well as produced water in oil and gas applications.

The TFX-5000 meter is intended for users seeking an accurate, reliable and affordable transit time metering device. It is available in a variety of configurations and can be selected with features suitable to meet particular application requirements.

By clamping onto the outside of pipes, ultrasonic devices do not contact the internal liquid which offers inherent advantages such as reduced installation time and cost, no limits on pressure or fluid compatibility.
